VALORANT continues to grow in what looks to be an exciting 2023 for Riot Games’ tactical first-person shooter. The game is becoming a heavy-hitter on Twitch and VALORANT’s eSports ecosystem is gaining more and more viewers as time goes on.The game is still growing, naturally new players will install and play for the first time. If that is you, then you are at the right place.we’ve picked an agent from each of the four classes: Sentinel, Controller, Duelist, and Initiator. Here is a list of some of the best agents, tips and tricks for new Valorant players.
For new Valorant players, the large list of agents available can seem daunting, especially those who are unfamiliar with the different classes. So for beginners, we’ve picked an agent from each of the four classes: Sentinel, Controller, Duelist, and Initiator.
For Sentinel, Sage is the easiest to choose because you don’t have to worry about accurately setting up a utility like Killjoy or Cypher, and there aren’t the high expectations that others might have for Chamber players.Sage is useful for slowing down and even taking out big pushes from the enemy team, preventing you from being overwhelmed. Healing is an easy and effective tool to aid the team and yourself, and his resurrection can provide a tremendous advantage to the ultimate team.
Brimstone is the ideal choice for beginners looking to take on the role of controller, with accurate smokes and easy-to-use utilities that help the team in most situations.For new Brimstone players on the attack, the most challenging thing to learn will be firing their incendiary grenades at the bombs to stop the spikes defuses, but both their Stim Beacon and Orbital Strike abilities are pretty straight forward and simple.
While Phoenix is also a strong starting option, Reyna makes the most sense for starting duelists.Reyna’s ability kit allows any player to follow this basic rotation: blind with Lear, kill, then eat or dismiss depending on the situation (eat if another enemy is trying to trade or dismiss). One thing new Reyna players should know is that you don’t really need to waste a Devour or Dismiss charge if you don’t need to. If no one sees you after you hit and you didn’t take any damage, just save it for another time.
Most beginners are a bit trickier than the other classes, but KAY/O is probably the best bet for beginners.His abilities allow you to negate or temporarily overcome opposing abilities, giving you and the team less to worry about when holding or defending sites. Being able to identify which agents are specifically within range of your zero/point knife is a valuable tool as well.
There is nothing wrong with experimenting with all the agents and finding the best one for you, even if they are not on this list.
Find your optimal Valorant crosshair and settings
One of the coolest features added to VALORANT is the ability to copy and share crosshair codes. Players can copy and paste their favorite supporter’s code or take a code from a player they see in the game.There are a few ideal crosshairs for ranked play that you can look at, but the most important thing is to find one that you are comfortable and consistent with.
Warm up before diving into a full Valorant match :
Keeping your crosshairs and settings in order, you’ll want to warm up and get in the zone before diving into a full game of competitive or unrated play. Spike Rush, Deathmatch, Escalation, and Training Range are all serviceable options to get ready before queuing up.
Play together :
It should go without saying that the key to winning, especially when you’re just starting out, is playing well as a team. Ideally, you’ll want to start queuing with some familiar teammates, but you should still be able to communicate effectively when playing with randoms.If you won’t use the microphone, at least use ping and text chat. Make sure teams are on the same page when it comes to buying, saving and managing the in-game team economy.
