To be able to improve your aim at Valorant, you first need to understand its DNA. The new free to play tactical FPS game is the brainchild of Riot Games, the creators of League of Legends. But what is the core essence of Valorant? The tactical multiplayer hero-based first-person shooter game is a merge between Counter-Strike (70%) and Overwatch (30%). Basically, if both aforementioned games were to unite in holy matrimony, Valorant would be their child.
Multiple 5vs5 bomb planting rounds
Credit-based weapon economy
Similar to CS:GO linear map layout
Very low Time to Kill
High reaction speed
Accuracy in crosshair placement and flicks
Recoil management and weapon spread
Mastering corner and angle peeking
The Overwatch contribution is not merely a swirl on top, it resides in the distinct abilities each hero character has. For a multiplayer game, this gives teams an almost endless pool of tactical and strategic options to play and experiment, all in the meantime being very entertaining to spectate for any esports audience and enthusiast.
The aim skill-set required to become a top Valorant aim trainer leans heavily towards high reaction speed, small accurate flick shots, weapon spread, and recoil management. Boost your skills in those attributes and you’ll move up in ranks. To explain mastering your aiming skills at Valorant in more details:
Valorant is similar to CS but the recoil is slightly different in the former. CS offers more options to spray control, use a sequence of bursts and tap to advance while your Valorant recoil resets.
As you are advancing throughout the map, always be aware of your crosshair placement by keeping it at head height and take corners by slightly adjusting your crosshair towards the edge of the corner
When it comes to angle distance try to keep your placement ready from as far from an angle as possible, the closer you are to an angle the more at risk of being shot first.
Control your movement and speed while advancing, for example, don’t sprint while you’re shooting. Shifting, walking or a brief stop offers much more accuracy when shooting
As mentioned before, Valorant overall has a linear map layout with some areas that have multiple angles, to avoid being killed, do not spread your aiming and peeking across different angles at the same time, use abilities such as smoke or viper’s poison cloud to block one angle while you take care of another and systematically work your way one angle at a time.
You need to follow in order to really improve your aim and benefit from the service. It’s better to train everyday for half-hour than once a week for 3 hours. Repeat this drill daily, on average it only takes around 25 minutes to complete.
