Valorant is a 5v5 character-based first-person shooting game which involves the use of abilities to impact and change the outcome of the match. Valorant is one of the most trending games in gaming communities right now.

Many professional gamers have praised Valorant while some have criticised its early release date as well.

However, Riot Games has quoted in this subject as well:

The beta has also allowed us the ability to help define what are acceptable play patterns and what aren’t - i.e. when is a play legit and ingenious vs. When is it a glitch or an exploit. We’ve seen some very creative uses of ability combos and pixel perfect placements that go outside of our expectations for the competitive integrity of the game, and now feel confident we can react quickly when new issues arise, as well as solving more fundamental exploits on maps.
