Sadly, death is a reality in any of these games and, while respawning can offer a quick means to forget getting merked by someone several levels above you, there are some deaths that are impossible to brush off so easily.
This is the topic of a recent discussion among Valorant players on Reddit, which sought to single out the least fun way of kicking the proverbial bucket.
These Poor Folks All Made A Valorant Effort Not To Die
Posting to begin this thread in the subreddit r/VALORANT, outstandingly named user sassysassysalad shared the clip of them being taken out in the game, captioning it: “Are there any worse ways to die in Valorant other than to a Raze satchel?”
The responses to this post saw a number of other players volunteer their own worst death picks, with user RjV0410 snagging top comment by saying: “Cypher's trip!!”, leading user Aggressive-Ad8192 to respond: “I’ve seen it happen in an actual unrated game before, convinced the people playing were bots.”
Another popular character-based option came from user Adventurous-Book-915, who singled out Skye’s dog, causing Asds751 to reply: “Remember everyone: if someone dies to Skye's dog, you are legally required to put ‘What the dog doin’?’ in all chats.”
Also nominated was a familiar foe to any gamer in the form of fall damage, with user yagarglefargle saying the worst thing is: “(dying to it) as Jett for even more emotional damage.”
Meanwhile, user BonsyXD shared their fear of friendly fire, singling out: “Phoenix's wall when you're on his team.”
On the other hand, user whataboutpulledpork shared a sentiment that any medieval knight can probably relate to, musing: “Getting stabbed is the worst. Just straight up disrespectful after panic outlining their silhouette with a whole clip at point blank.”
Regardless of whether you’re a fan of getting shanked up or drying to a dog, make sure to follow us for more coverage of Valorant throughout the 5.0 update, which arrived last month.
