Champion Skins

Six new skins are now on the PBE for testing!

Battle Academia Caitlyn

1820 RP (Legendary)
"A feared and respected second year, head of the Luminary Club, and class president of Labrys God-Weapon Academy. Caitlyn enrolled herself in the famously troubled school specifically to whip the delinquents there into prime fighting shape, hoping to one day become the greatest battlefield general in history. With her perfect record, she's not too far off."
[How to transform gun: "You acquire one item (boots don't count), and once you leave the fountain you will trigger the stage 2 transform. Upon acquiring your third item, when you leave the fountain, you will trigger the last stage."

As a Legendary skin, Battle Academia Caitlyn has a new voiceover:
Check out her full special interactions:

Here's Riot GrumboJr with a bugs & feedback thread for Battle Academia Caitlyn:
"Battle Academia Caitlyn is headshotting her way onto the Rift, featuring:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New animations and recall!
  • New VO!
  • New evolving gun as she gains more items!*
Battle Academia Caitlyn is set to be 1820 RP. 
Battle Academia Caitlyn will be available to play soon on PBE! As players who get a first hand look at this upcoming content, we want to hear your thoughts! Drop your feedback in the thread below! 
* Weapon Transformation:
You acquire one item (boots don't count), and once you leave the fountain you will trigger the stage 2 transform. Upon acquiring your third item, when you leave the fountain, you will trigger the last stage."

Battle Academia Garen

1350 RP
"'Brother' to Lux, Garen is the only biological child of his family, but was neglected from an early age as his parents spent all their time developing the god-weapon fragment that would one day become their daughter. As he vented his anger in increasingly delinquent ways, Labrys sought him out for enrollment, where he eventually joined the Battle Club."
Here's Riot DW Platypus with a bugs & feedback thread for Battle Academia Garen:
"I've got a lot of weight on my shoulders! 
Battle Academia Garen comes with:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New Recall!
Battle Academia Garen should be available on PBE soon! Feel free to leave any feedback or questions you have so far down below! 
Riot DW Platypus"

Battle Academia Leona

1350 RP
"An oddly cheery member of Labrys Academy's Battle Club, Leona's dark side comes out in combat, when her motherly, protective persona is utterly replaced by bloodlust. The change is so dramatic that even the most violent students tend to stay on her good side, hoping to avoid her wrath."
Here's Riot DW Platypus with a bugs & feedback thread for Battle Academia Leona:
"I will protect you.

Battle Academia Leona comes with:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New Recall!
Battle Academia Leona should be available on PBE soon! Feel free to leave any feedback or questions you have so far down below!"

Battle Academia Leona Prestige Edition

100 Prestige Points
"After being selected for the yearly cross-academy tournament, Leona sharpened her combat prowess almost every free moment she had, knowing she had to beat out other top-ranking students from rival schools like Durandal, Babylon, Amrita, and Sharur. Her bloodlust now honed and her shield at the ready, she will pummel anyone who challenges her into a meaty pulp."

Here's Riot DW Platypus with a bugs & feedback thread for Battle Academia Leona Prestige Edition:
"Rally to me. 
Battle Academia Leona Prestige Edition comes with:
  • New models and textures!

Riot DW Platypus"


Battle Academia Wukong

1350 RP
"A consummate troublemaker and prankster, Wukong has failed out of every high school in the region, eventually washing out into Labrys as an 'enrollment of last resort'. A naturally gifted fighter in the Battle Club, he still hasn't learned discipline, and only listens to Caitlyn because she can beat him up."

Here's Riot DW Platypus with a bugs & feedback thread for Battle Academia Wukong:
"Put me to the test. 
Battle Academia Wukong comes with:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New Recall!
Battle Academia Wukong should be available on PBE soon! Feel free to leave any feedback or questions you have so far down below! 
Riot DW Platypus"

Battle Academia Yone

1350 RP
"Yone is a brooding, quiet member of the Assassin Club, one whose morose and serious attitude belies the colossal chip on his shoulder. The bad blood between him and his brother is well known, and even speaking about it casually has been known to invoke Yone's fury-- something Caitlyn has picked up on for her own purposes."

Here's Riot Dead Thief with a bugs & feedback thread for Battle Academia Yone:
"Hey there! 
Battle Academia Yone is ripping up the rift with:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New recall animation! 
Battle Academia Yone is set to be 1350 RP. 
Battle Academia Yone is available to play on PBE! We are excited that you are the first players to get your hands on him! Let us know what you think.
