Are you interested in finding out what percentage of players you belong to in VALORANT’s rank distribution? Then you’re in the right place.
Riot Games entered the FPS genre with the launch of VALORANT. It is a 5v5 tactical shooter, where Agents’ abilities meet precise gunplay. The game is heavily inspired by CS: GO’s FPS mechanics and Overwatch’s hero-shooter aspects.
Although most people were initially skeptical about VALORANT’s success, their impression changed when VALORANT started to gain popularity. More than 20 million average players play VALORANT each month.
VALORANT has different game modes, such as Deathmatch, Spike Rush, Unrated, and Competitive. Additionally, there are three rotating game modes: Escalation, Replication, and Snowball Fight, which change with every patch. Among these, Competitive, or Ranked is the most popular game mode in VALORANT.
What is VALORANT Rank?
As mentioned earlier, there’s a competitive game mode in VALORANT. This game mode is also referred to as Ranked. Players are given specific ranks based on skills and Rank Ratings in this competitive mode.
The point of having a competitive or Ranked mode is to play against similarly skilled opponents so you can enjoy the thrilling and nail-biting experience of the matches. If you are new to this game, you must play 10 Unrated matches to unlock competitive mode and get a specific rank.
All VALORANT Ranks
There are 9 tiers of ranks in VALORANT. These tiers also have 3 sub-tiers, except for Radiant. Radiant is a special rank category representing the best of the best. Only the top 500 from each Region can reach Radiants.
