Valorant, developed by Riot Games, is a tactical first-person shooter that combines precise gunplay with unique character abilities. Released in 2020, it has quickly become a staple in the competitive gaming scene.


Valorant's core gameplay revolves around 5v5 matches where players take on roles as "Agents," each with distinctive abilities. The game demands strategic thinking, teamwork, and sharp reflexes. The tactical depth, inspired by games like Counter-Strike, is complemented by the innovative use of abilities similar to those in Overwatch.
