Valorant Guide


Valorant is a free-to-play first-person shooter game developed and published by Riot Games, the creators of League of Legends, Tales of Runeterra and Teamfight Tactics. The game was published for Windows platform.


Valorant Gameplay


Much like CS: GO, Valorants base gameplay revolves around the Search and Destroy formula where matches are 25 rounds long, with each round lasting 100 seconds.

The team who reaches 13 wins first with a two-round lead wins, otherwise, a 12-12 score will lead to overtime.


Each round will allow players 30 seconds to buy weapons and defensive gear for that round, however, unlike CS: GO the twist in Valorant is that it comes with Agents. And instead of investing in utilities like Smoke grenades and Molotovs, players will need to purchase Agent abilities.

Rounds in Valorant are won when one team wipes out the other before the clocks run down, or if the attackers secure a successful plant and a blast out of the Spike, or if the defenders can protect the plant sites long enough for the timer to run out, or defuse the Spike post-plant.

  2. Jett - Duelist

Valorant Maps


  1. Haven
