Zedd's Quotes

The very first time I got my hands on VALORANT, I pretty much stopped playing all other games. It was the perfect combination of my favorite games.

When I was younger I was obsessed with Counter-Strike, and in recent years I played loads of Overwatch, but felt like the room for “clutch” moments just wasn’t there. When I heard about VALORANT, I thought it could combine my love for abilities with the high-consequence gameplay of a game like Counter-Strike.

Q: What are your top tips for new players first trying out Valorant?

Zedd: I think finding the right sensitivity that works for YOU, and sticking with it to develop some muscle memory is helpful. Furthermore, communication and a positive team spirit is possibly the most important advantage you can have in VALORANT. Whenever I get into a game I always say ‘Hello’ and ask everyone who they like to play. Just starting off with positive vibes will lift the team morale and will make everyone play better. Remember; everyone has bad days and if your Jett is bottom fragging the best you can do for your own game is to boost that spirit.
