In this article, we’ll drive you through ShaZam’s new and updated VALORANT settings that you need to know. So you can tweak your settings accordingly and get even better at the game.
Born in 1993, Shahzeeb “ShahZaM” Khan is a North American VALORANT eSports professional, currently playing for Sentinels. Formerly, he played CS:GO professionally for big organizations such as Cloud9, Optic Gaming, and Complexity.
ShahZam started his career as a semi-pro CS: Source player. When CS: GO was released, he decided to become a pro in the game and made quite a name in the community. However, he wasn’t quite able to break into the top tier CS: GO scene during his career.
When VALORANT was announced, ShahZam saw the perfect opportunity to utilize his potential in a fresh new game. Not long after his debut in VALORANT, he was picked by the Sentinels as an IGL. Though Sentinels had a rough start, with ShahZam’s lead and others’ individual performance, Sentinels started to pop off in the VALORANT Competitive scene.
