Valorant, Riot Games' class-based tactical shooter, is finally here after an incredibly successful beta period.
Despite each character offering their own abilities and signature moves, much of Valorant's combat still comes down to the simple act of pulling the trigger.
Complicating things further is recoil, which can turn even the simplest shot into a huge gamble. Here's how to work around it.
Valorant: How to control recoil
Each weapon has its own recoil pattern, with automatic weapons being much less predictable than semi-auto ones.
Essentially the most general advice is to fire in short bursts. This allows you to fire, reposition your weapon, and then fire again, hopefully maximising the damage dealt to your targets.
Thanks to @100Thieves on Twitter, it looks as though Valorant offers similar recoil patterns to those found in CS:GO. Here's a quick look at some of the weapon patterns.
