how to play Valorant for beginners
As in any shooter, you will have to spend more than one night learn to play. It is best to start with the in-game settings. Click on the gear in the upper right corner. Settings should start with graphics. Reduce its quality if the characteristics of your computer are not so productive. Adjust the sight and sensitivity of the mouse for yourself, but we recommend doing it at the training shooting range.
As for the agents and their abilities, study them as the game progresses, and find a character you like. We recommend starting with Sage. This agent of the Sentinel-class is quite easy to learn. Among her abilities, she has a Barrier Orb that can block the passage of opponents. Slow Orb that when hit on the ground forms a field that slows down the movement of Agents. Healing Orb that can be used both on allies and on yourself. And the super-skill Resurrection that reincarnates a killed ally. The best way to learn this game is to practice. So don’t delay and go into battle!
