Valorant Tips

It is not easy to become a pro in Valorant. You will need to learn a lot of things. You may think that it doesn’t matter what agent you pick, the most important task is to shoot well. That’s not true as even if aiming helps at first you will eventually face the opponent that can shoot better and uses the advantages of his agent over you. But don’t worry we will help you prioritize the skills you need to master as Valorant beginner.

Pick a Role

Each agent has a role. There are four roles in the game each of them is significant in specific way.

Valorant Roles

You cannot see it from the picture, but Killjoy is a sentinel. So the four roles are: duelist, initiator, sentinel and controller. When you pick a role it is very important to fulfill its tasks. For example, if you take a controller don’t forget to use your abilities in order to help your team take the best positions in a map unseen. As initiator you should know a map good and know where to find weak spots and reveal the enemy. And so on. If you like to play solo then try duelist, but remember that some abilities can harm your teammates.

Choose an Agent

After you have picked your role in the game have a better look at the champions from this category. Learn there abilities, try them out in the training mode, play several matches with different agents to pick the one you like the most. Our Valorant agents tier list can help you make a decision too.

We advice you master two agents and change them every 2-3 matches. That will make you better player as you will be more advanced and will know more agents. In addition you won’t face the situation when the champion you usually play is taken and you have to challenge your self and learn a new one during the game.

Choose Right Weapon

Before you upgrade your aiming skills choose the weapon you are best with. Moreover, you need to differentiate between their types and adjust your weapon choice to the situation. Try the weapons in training mode and define your potential. Pick 1-2 weapons for each category of weapons. You can see them below.

Choose Right Weapon

Imagine several situation when shotgun is better then a rifle and vice verse. For exmaple, you are playing in def and you know a spot where you can wait for an enemy and shot him in melee range. What would you choose? I would choose a shotgun as it has higher chances to oneshot a player in short range.
