VALORANT is a 5v5 tactical shooter from the developers behind League of Legends. This is also Riot Game’s first foray into the world of first-person shooter games.
Riot Games took some heavy inspiration from CSGO while developing VALORANT. And as a result, most of the core mechanics are exactly the same here in VALORANT as it is in counter-strike. With the addition of agents, Riot wants to differentiate itself from its biggest competitor.
Each agent in VALORANT serves a different role in the team. Agents like Cypher that have surveillance capabilities are crucial for a tactical shooter where information plays a vital role in either winning or losing a match.
The team that will be able to utilize Cypher’s kits in the best possible way will be able to determine the pace of the game. A cheeky camera or tripwire spot can be lethal against attackers especially when they are entering a site.
Cypher spots on Ascent
One way smokes are basically a great tool where your opponents won’t be able to see you whereas you can see their legs. Which in turn can give players a huge advantage while defending a site. This guide above has some great one-way placement for Cypher’s cage.
On top of that, there are also some must know tripwire and camera setups available that should definitely give players an edge over their opponents in a fiery ranked match. Cypher mains should definitely memorize these spots on Ascent.
