“Shooting in Valorant is precise, consequential, and highly-lethal – we want you to win on your skill and strategy alone,” Riot says.
“Everyone’s got guns and a unique set of abilities, so how do you beat someone with the speed of wind? Use your own moves to outplay them and beat them to the shot.
“Valorant is a game for bold strategists who dare to make the unexpected play, because if it wins, it works.”

It claims most minimum spec computers will play Valorant at 30 frames per second, while modern rigs will offer 60-144 FPS.
