Riot Games is introducing a new rank tier in VALORANT, and it will be called “Ascendant”

VALORANT is Riot Games’ foray into the highly competitive first-person tactical shooter genre of games. Despite solid competition from CS:GO and Overwatch, Riot Games managed to garner a dedicated player base consisting of players from different FPS games.

Since VALORANT’s release, it has undergone constant changes to keep its competitive integrity. Riot Game changes Weapons, Agents, and other aspects with every update to constantly change the meta.

Currently, there are 7 Rank tiers in VALORANT. Iron is the lowest Rank among seven tiers, and Radiant is the absolute highest a player can get in this game. Only a very few players can reach Radiant in different regions.
