News about any famous celebrity playing video games always excites the community, especially the global Valorant community.
Hey, the more the merrier, right?
Is Valorant Officially the Famous Celebrities Club Game by Riot?
In 2023, the Valorant game fans had the fortune to learn news about two famous celebrity entities taking interest in the game. Admittedly, one of the two famous celebrities was recently revealed to play the game, and the fans are already over the Omega Earth Cloud 9!
Ben Affleck Plays Valorant? Omen – Batman FTW?
The latest to join the list of famous Valorant Celebrities is Batman himself, played by Ben Affleck. Fans reportedly spotted him at the finale of the VCT Champions 2023 event.
Seeing Ben Affleck arrive with his son to watch the finale surprised the viewers, casters, and practically everyone in the LA stadium. Although some speculated it’s his son who must play the game, fans learned only later that Ben Affleck himself plays it!
The news spread faster than a brimstone molly detonating on the ground, and the entire Valorant community felt awed to welcome their favorite caped crusader. But, it begged the question, who does Ben Affleck main in Valorant?
Although fans would have definitely loved the opportunity to ask the question to the man himself, the Billionaire-orphan playing Hollywood star Ben Affleck was spared any questions that evening.
However, after the release of a tweet ( post on X?) by a fan, it was revealed that Ben Affleck plays KAY/O and Raze as his main Valorant Agents.
Unsurprisingly, fans speculate that the recent game Patch 7.04 Nerfs was also a sore development for Ben Affleck, whom the community would prefer to play Jett or Omen. Later that evening, he was spotted graciously signing loads of merchandise for kids who were also at the stadium.
Elon Musk at VCT 2023
As If seeing Batman wasn’t enough of a surprise, the VCT Champions 2023 event was also graced by the presence of Elon Musk! (Surely, Valorant is indeed the game of famous celebrities, no? – Cypher must know something, perhaps!)
The Evil Geniuses Team members and the whole stadium were surprised to see the SpaceX mogul arrive to watch the VCT final B05 bracket.

While cheers hailed loud and plenty of fun was experienced besides the nail-biting moments, some game fans weren’t shy to take digs at Elon Musk.
A game fan inside the LA dome took to Twitter (X . com) to tweet (post) about sighting the owner of the social media platform. Parallelly, a handmade sign loudly asked him to rename X back to Twitter. All in a fun spirit, hopefully.
