Mike from Valorant Leaks suggested a potential price drop/hike in some of the guns that will come soon, as soon as in the next patch or episode 3.

The Operator is one of the most important guns in the game, given it is a powerful sniper that is powerful in the hands of agile agents. The Judge, too, a great gun in terms of shotgun.

  • Operator: 5000 >>> 4700
  • Judge: 1600 >>> 1850

The ACS-12 Judge is a Shotgun that has faced the only price hike that seems plausible enough, given its monstrosity at close range. Bringing the Operator to a closer price range might see a change in gameplay on a large scale, and change the gun meta as well. Both the snipers faced a price drop, with Marshal by 50 creds and Operator by 300. While the community is divided on Operator’s price drop, Marshal’s seem pretty sane.
