In this article, we’ll drive you through Tarik’s new and updated VALORANT settings. So you can tweak your settings accordingly and get even better at the game.

Born in 1996, Tarik “Tarik” Celik is a content creator for Sentinels and currently lives in North America. He started his career as a professional CS:GO player, competing in countless notable tournaments under big organizations such as NRG, MIBR, Cloud 9, and more.

He belongs to the only NA roster to win a CS: GO major, under Cloud 9 banner. Not only did he win the Eleague 2018 major, but he also received the MVP award of that tournament. Besides his professional esports career, he has also been very well known in the streaming community since the CS: GO days.

After leaving countless remarks as a professional esports athlete, he decided to step down from the competitive CS: GO and pursue his career as a full-time content creator in 2021. When VALORANT emerged as a full-fledged game and took over the FPS world, Tarik took the opportunity.

His positive impression and incredible gameplay made him even more popular in the VALORANT community, and everyone welcomed him wholeheartedly. And now, he is one of the biggest VALORANT Twitch streamers in the community.
