WHAT IS VALORANT?
Valorant is a game that is launched by Riot Games as a Closed Beta on April 7, 2020 and it is a character-based 5v5 tactical shooter game. It is free-to-play Valorant and it was officially released on June 2, 2020!
Achieving victory in the Valorant, that is, winning the game only depends on skill and strategy.
FPS-based Valorant is the war of 2-team called defense and attack and there are 5 players in each team.
The aim of the attack team is to move the Spike bomb to A or B regions, to set it up and to gain an advantage over its opponents and the aim of the defense team is to find, solve the Spike bomb or neutralize the attack from the opposing team and win the match.
The match consists of two circuits and there are a total of 25 rounds in these two circuits. The teams that wins 13 rounds reaches victory.
There are 11 characters in the Valorant game called Breach, Brimstone, Cypher, Jett, Omen, Phoenix, Sage, Sova, Reyna, Viper, Raze. Skill C, Q Skill, Skill F, Skill X are different from each of these characters. For this reason, Valorant offers players many gameplay options. In addition, there are 3 maps in Valorant named Bind, Heaven and Split.
Furthermore, there are 3 ways to win each round. First is installing and successfully detonating the Spike bomb: The duty that the attack team undertook. This process takes about 45 seconds. Second one is solving the Spike Bomb: It is the duty of the defense team to do. This process takes about 7.5 seconds. Third is eliminating the players of the opposing team: If one team eliminates all the players of the other team, the match wins.
At the start of each round, players purchase weapons, armor, and abilities with money called “Creds” during a 30-second purchase period. The amount of Creds to be won at the beginning of the game is determined according to their performance in the previous round. The number of players you eliminate from the opposing team during a round, setting up Spike, winning or losing the round will affect your gain of Creds.
When the purchase phase is over, the attack team has 1 minute and 40 seconds to install Spike. The defense team should neutralize the Attack team during this time.
