Valorant is finally here, meaning everyone can jump into Riot's competitive shooter.

Since this is a brand-new game, a lot of gamers are just trying to figure out the game for the first few days. 

However, there are some handy tips and tricks that will improve your experience with Valorant right out of the gate.

Let's take a look at some of them now!

Find The Right Crosshair

Valorant features an on-board crosshair customizer, and it is one of the most in-depth ones we have seen in any game. You have full range to customize every aspect of your crosshair, whether you want a simple one, or an elaborate one that fluctuates whenever you move. 

Anything is possible with the crosshair customizer in Valorant, so one of the best tips we can give you is to spend however long it takes to find the right crosshair. 

You will be grateful you have the right crosshair once you get in-game, so spending some time on it now is a good tip to follow!

 

Experiment With The Agents

Right off the rip, there are five agents unlocked for you to try your hand at.

  • Jett
  • Sage
  • Brimstone
  • Phoenix 
  • Sova

Once you play a few games, you will be able to unlock some of the other agents in the game. All of the agents play differently, they all have their own unique abilities and can offer something unlike any other agent on the battlefield.

 

Taking a few matches to find which agents suits your playstyle the most is going to be vital. If you are an aggressive player who likes to push the mantle, perhaps Jett would be best suited for you!

Find the agent that you want to main in Valorant as soon as possible, and it is always good to have some backup options as well!

Aim

Aiming is perhaps the biggest component of Valorant, the aiming system can be compared to Counter-Strike. but there is more of an emphasis on headshots and tapping rather than spraying.

For the most part, a lot of the weapons are going to one-shot your opponent in the head. 

Spraying is still a viable option in some scenarios, but you should focus a lot on perfecting your crosshair placement and getting used to swinging wide and close to peek opponents. 

You will find yourself getting a lot more eliminations once you can get used to the crosshair placement in Valorant!
