How to get unlimited free RP in League of Legends
Riot Games has announced that unlimited free RP is now available in League of Legends. Here's how to set it up and get started on RP.
RP and Blue Essence (BE) are the two primary currencies in League of Legends. While players gradually accumulate BE through regular gameplay and mission completion, RP is much harder to come by. The only way to get some RP (Riot Points) is to purchase it with fiat money.
On the PC, League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics use the RP system to unlock cosmetic content and give players a way to directly support the game designers. The process for obtaining RP is fairly simple.
What Are Riot Points (RP)?
The only premium currency in the game is RP, formerly known as Riot Points. Their name is derived from the creator, but Riot Games dropped the connection when they revealed other games. Playing the game won’t result in you getting RP. They can only be purchased straight from the PC client’s game store.
On the top-right of the screen, next to the BE balance, is where you can see your current RP balance.
How to Get Riot Points Fast
As we’ve already mentioned, buying RP from the game store is one of the best and quickest ways to get a lot of it. What you must do is as follows:
- Open the League of Legends client.
- Go to the “Shop” menu on the top right. The icon looks like three coin stacks.
- Click on “Purchase RP.”
- Choose your preferred transaction method from the left-hand menu.
- Select the amount of RP you want to buy from the menu on the right.
- Follow the instructions to complete the transaction and immediately get the requested amount of RP deposited to your account.
Here are the prices of RP if you use PayPal or a credit card to purchase them:
- 650RP: $5 (US)
- 1380RP: $10
- 2800RP: $20
- 5000RP: $35
- 7200RP: $50
- 15000RP: $100
More RP will be given for a series of larger purchases than a few smaller ones. To get the most for your money, use the highest priced purchase plan that will cover a large amount of RP purchases if you want to make them all at once.
Gift cards can also be used to obtain RP. Some large chain stores, including 7-Eleven, Walmart, Target, Gamestop, and others, sell gift cards. Depending on the retailer, these cards are typically offered in the following denominations: $10 (US), $25 (3500 RP), $50, and $100. You can effectively purchase RP even if you don’t have a PayPal or banking account by purchasing a gift card with cash.
If you have purchased a gift card or received one as a present, here’s how you can redeem it:
- Open the game’s shop through the coin’s icon on the top-right in the client screen.
- Click on “Purchase RP.”
- Select “Prepaid Cards & Codes.”
- Input the unique code found on the gift card (usually needs to be scratched off).
- Press “Submit.”
- You’ll instantly receive the RP amount corresponding to the card’s value.
Some websites also advertise RP promotions, which can be obtained by participating in the game or different raffles and giveaways. Notably, some websites also produce unique tournaments that users can enter and win different prizes, including RP, for.
Always keep in mind that the majority of websites that advertise getting RP for free shouldn’t be trusted. It’s probably a scam if you don’t have to put in a lot of effort to earn a small amount of RP or complete countless surveys. Free RP generators that are advertised on websites don’t work, and those that require your login information are after your account for malicious purposes.
What Can Be Purchased Using Riot Points?
RP can be used to buy champions, a variety of cosmetic items, and in-game advantages. Since there are other ways to obtain champions and RP can only be used to expand your roster of available champions, it doesn’t give you an advantage in gameplay. In actuality, purchasing items from the game’s shop won’t increase your chances of winning.
The following is a list of what you can buy with RP:
- Champion bundles
- Additional rune pages
- Skins and chromas
- Crafting material (chests and keys)
- Little Legends eggs (used for Teamfight Tactics)
- Arena skins (for Teamfight Tactics)
- Ward skins
- Summoner icons
- Event passes
- Event-specific items
- Premium clash tickets
- Experience boosts
- Summoner name changes
- Account transfers to another region
Buying champions is the only practical way to gain an advantage over rivals. With more champions unlocked, you have more options and can plan to counter your opponents’ selections or coordinate swaps with other players in your queue. However, it should be noted that by playing the game, completing missions, using the BE currency system, and crafting, you should have a chance to acquire all champions.
Are the webpages offering free RP scams?
Numerous websites offer free RP in exchange for users completing menial tasks like creating accounts or merely providing their email addresses. These websites are rarely reliable, though. Even though there are a few trustworthy tournament- and raffle-based offers online, they are uncommon and frequently don’t award much RP in the first place.
As a general rule, avoid visiting a website if it requests your League of Legends, or any other platform, credentials (specifically, your password). Even Riot staff members won’t inquire about that information during official conduct. It is solely your responsibility to keep your account secure.
Does Riot give out free RP?
Riot Games has provided free RP during lengthy server outages that simultaneously impacted a large number of users. However, there hasn’t been a giveaway of this nature in a while. Don’t rely on a server break to get free RP because server capabilities have greatly improved and the risk of catastrophic crashes has decreased.
If you send them original art, Riot employees have been known to give out a smaller amount of RP (typically 10–20). It has now become custom, and Riot keeps an entry gallery open for fresh submissions for potential RP rewards. Look it over, and if you need a few more RP to get that awesome new skin, draw something and share it on social media.
Purchasing RP won’t give you a competitive advantage over the opposition, but it will give you more cosmetic customizations that can enhance your overall enjoyment of the game. Be cautious of any offers that seem too good to be true if you’re still determined to obtain some RP to use toward LoL skins or chromas.
