Valorant: Top Tips & Tricks for the Tactical Shooter – Heroes, Abilities, Aiming & More!
Here’s some helpful tips for the new players to Valorant, as well as some cool ways to utilise your abilities.
This gives Valorant a lot of potential moving into the future and becoming a true competitive eSports game.
Because Valorant is so competitive, you may be looking for ways to improve your aiming, gameplay and mechanics to hit be the best of the best!
Here, we’ll go over some great ways to improve your gameplay as well as some interesting ways to use character’s abilities in unorthodox ways.
Heroes and Abilities
To begin with, you’ll need to find a few heroes that fit your playstyle.
We recommend using Phoenix as his abilities are easy to pick up and begin learning the mechanics of the game.
After you’ve got the hang of how to play Valorant, you’ll want to branch off and find some other Heroes you work well with.
Luckily the game outlines how each character plays. Whether you’re a Support, Entry-Fragger, or In-Game leader, there’s a Hero for you.
This may take the most time, but once you’ve found your main Heroes, you’re well on your way to mastering their abilities and mechanics.
Each character’s abilities are fairly self-explanatory, but there can be some interesting ways to utilise them for a separate advantage.
For example, Sova’s Ultimate allows his arrows to go through walls and also gives him a large knockback.
If the arrow is aimed at the ground it will boost Sova into the air, with the ability to reach vantage points Sova normally wouldn’t be able to.
This can throw enemies off, as Sova isn’t usually able to utilise a height advantage.
There are likely many other ways to utilise the abilities of each
If you can’t aim, you can’t kill. If you can’t kill, you can’t win. It really is as simple as that.
Luckily there is a training area where you practice aiming, inspect recoil patterns and go over attacking and defending scenarios.
It’s very rare to find this sort of detail included in a competitive FPS and is a welcome addition to the Valorant experience.
We highly recommend spending as much time as possible to hone in your aim here.
In the long run, this is in of the key factors that will set you apart from the other players.
Continuously up the difficulty and speed of the targets and soon enough you’ll find your aim improving.
