Valorant is the new game from Riot Games after League of Legends and Team fight Tactics. This new FPS does not hide its inspirations coming mainly from a certain Counter Strike: Global offensive. Having a few dozen hours of play on Valorant and much more on the Counter Strike license, we give you our advice to get started.
This guide is intended to teach you the basics of the game; it is also inspired by mistakes made by beginners who are not used to either FPS in general or the series from Valve.
Manage your money well
In Valorant, skills and weapons are purchased with money earned each round. The amount often depends on your collective actions (like planting a bomb) or personal actions (like killing an enemy). As a team game, it’s important to be in sync with your partners and see the money holistically.
So do not hesitate to buy a weapon from a companion if he asks for it or on the contrary to save all together to be more efficient during the next round. Better to be all in the same boat with a gun for one round than to be disorganized and create loopholes for your opponents throughout the match due to lack of equipment from one or two members of your team.
Better to play the time than the kill
The mistake most often made in games is impatience. We often tend to think that killing enemies is the best way to win, but that is rarely the case here. This defect is most often found when one has the role of defender. In this case, you are in a strong position because the enemy must attack without knowing where you are exactly. Also, attackers have a time limit to plant the bomb, so you have to play on their impatience to gain the upper hand.
The same goes for the attackers when the bomb is planted. Do not attempt to kill enemies by seeking them out or holding positions that are too exposed. Wait for them to surprise them or to make them go around in circles, and thus gain precious seconds because even if your whole team falls, as long as the bomb explodes, it’s won.
If the chances of losing a round are high, save your guns
When you’re pretty sure a round is lost, don’t play hero by stupidly losing your weapons. Sometimes it’s wiser to go into hiding and save some money for the next round or buy a gun from a coworker with empty pockets. In addition, if the enemy starts looking for you by running everywhere, you can make them lose money which will bring a significant advantage for the future.
It is also specified that there is no point in saving the basic weapon or saving a weapon during a decisive round under penalty of being mocked by your entire team and your opponents.
Which weapons to choose?
Oddly (or logically), Valorant pretty much picks up the meta of Counter Strike: Global Offensive (Ak-47, M4, AWP for short). When it comes to handguns, Ghost is arguably the best weapon for the first round.
Phamtom and Vandal are therefore the best assault rifles in their class and even in the game. Whether you are precise or master the bursts of fire, they are undoubtedly safe values. The Operator (the equivalent of the AWP) is also very effective because it kills most often in one hit, however it is necessary to manage the distances well and as with the Sheriff, at close range, you don’t have any room for error.
This does not mean that other weapons are useless, but they are arguably less effective than those mentioned above. On the other hand, certain situations may require that we force ourselves to buy. In this case it is advisable to take the Specter or the Marshal.
