VALORANT map Split was recently disabled from Competitive Queue after players found a crazy hiding spot exploit near the A Ramp area of the map.

VALORANT is a free-to-play tactical 5v5 shooter game developed by Riot Games. The game takes heavy inspiration from CS:GO in the sense that one team has to plant the spike while the other team tries to defend. The main difference between the two games is the characters in VALORANT have different abilities.

Unlike CS:GO, the maps in VALORANT are picked randomly upon searching for a match. One of these maps is the Split. Split is very popular in VALORANT and was the first map to use the Ascenders/Ropes. Previously, Riot Games made some changes to Split to make it more viable.

VALORANT Split A Site Crazy Hiding Spot:

Recently, the VALORANT community found a crazy hiding spot near Split A Ramp. Characters like Jett and Raze can use their movement abilities to get up on top of the small partitions near the ceiling in A Haven.

This position is perfect for defending because most VALORANT players keep their crosshairs near enemy head level and are unlikely to check the spot shown in the video below. The place was originally found when a Reddit user amenbo shared a video on Reddit.

Of course, the question arises, doesn’t this spot offer an unfair advantage to defenders and characters like Jett and Raze who can access it?. Well, Apparently, Riot Games thinks so too.

Split Disabled from Competitive:

Recently the VALORANT Official Twitter account made an announcement saying the Split was temporarily disabled from the competitive queue. The Tweet reads,

“Split is temporarily out of the Competitive queue while we work to fix a map exploit. You’ll hear from us as soon as it returns.”
