Valorant is a character-based tactical shooter that came out in 2020. The game has Agents with specific abilities that make gunfights more complex, but the central focus is still on shooting. Therefore, optimal settings that smooth the gunplay experience are crucial.

The Valorant settings menu provides many options, which can throw off players unfamiliar with certain terms. Tuning these settings based on your PC specs and individual preferences is important to ensure you can give your best in-game. This is where looking at the settings of professional players is useful.

Andrey "Shao" Kiprsky is a Russian professional Valorant player currently in the Natus Vincere squad. He migrated to this new team along with most of his other teammates after his last team, FunPlus Phoenix, failed to make it into the partnership model with Riot Games.

Shao is known as the clutch master of his team and can be found in the primary Initiator role on his team. He usually plays more passive Agents in Valorant, like Sova and Fade, and is often the last person alive on his team, as he uses his abilities from the backlines to set his teammates up.

His controlled playstyle makes him one of the best support players in the world and someone his teammates can always trust to have their back. If you believe you have a similar playstyle as Shao but can't zero in on the best Valorant settings to optimize your gameplay, this article covers you.
