Riot Games blessed the player base with their most unique map yet in Valorant with the start of Episode 3 Act 2.
From day one, Valorant featured a pretty diverse collection of maps each with its own unique gameplay mechanic. As more Episodes and acts went on, Riot began to get bolder with their map design.
The most recent addition to the map pool Fracture is their most complex map yet. It features an “H” shaped layout that is really new to the game. While the map became available for players outside the PBE server only on patch 3.05, it seems like Riot is already working on making more balancing changes to the map already.
Fracture to receive changes
In the recent PBE update, Riot announced that the tunnel to Generator/Canteen areas can no longer be wall banged. Also, one of the crates on the B site is no longer penetrable, this makes it so it is safer planting option for attackers.
Fracture is really a unique map in terms of its layout, flow, and counterplay opportunities for players. Based on the layout, many think this is an attacker-sided map. However, the devs are already testing several changes in the PBE server to make it fair for both attackers as well as defenders.
