Sykkuno's Lobster meme is now live in Valorant as Riot Games added a dedicated "Lobster?" spray with the new Battle Pass.
Riot Games have decided to commemorate a Sykkuno Valorant meme by adding a "Lobster?" in-game spray with the new Battle Pass for Episode 2 Act 3. Valorant streamer Sykkuno was surprised just as much as we were. It all started a few months back, when the streamer made an innocent joke regarding one of the in-game graffiti.
The Lobster Joke
It all happened during a match on Ascent when he encountered the bizarre picture of a poorly drawn animal. Sykkuno is the 36th most popular streamer on Twitch, and he's quite active in Valorant. The executive producer for Valorant Anna "RiotSuperCakes" Donlon is also a big fan of his.
@Sykkuno and teammates (I believe @Valkyrae is part of this crew) are a new favorite crew to watch stream VAL after a stressful day at work. They make me smile and laugh. They teach me stuff. It's delightful, honestly.— Anna Donlon (@RiotSuperCakes) February 17, 2021
For anyone familiar with that, should be no surprise that Riot Games decided to add a Valorant in-game spray to honor the lobster joke. It was just a matter of time.

Sykkuno’s Reaction to the New Spray
The new spray was revealed a few days ago when Riot released Valorant Patch 2.08 and the new Battle Pass for Episode 2 Act 3. Sykkuno himself was quite surprised by the outcome and even had some trouble believing it was made after his lobster meme.
Really? They actually did it for me. That is actually super cool! I did not know they would do that, that’s the coolest thing ever! Well I’ve got to buy the Battlepass now, they got me guys. Now I have to buy it.
While the in-game files label the spray as "dog" the spray is clearly known as a lobster now. Sykkuno unintentionally left his mark in Valorant history. The new Battle Pass, much like any other beforehand, has two versions: a free one and a premium one. If you want to get your hands on the lobster spray, worry not, as it's free, you'll just have to play the game and earn some points.
