Valorant is a free-to-play first-person hero shooter developed and published by Riot Games, for Microsoft Windows. Valorant matches are a 5v5 character-based tactical shooting affair, set on a global stage, where precise gunplay meets unique agent abilities.
In gameplay, players play as one of a set of Agents, with characters designed based on several countries and cultures around the world, and you'll need to outwit, outplay, and outshine your competition with tactical abilities in order to win.
Agents have unique abilities, each requiring charges, as well as a unique ultimate ability that requires charging through kills, deaths, orbs, or objectives. Every player starts each round with a "classic" pistol and one or more "signature ability" charges. Other weapons and ability charges can be purchased using an in-game economic system that awards money based on the outcome of the previous round, any kills the player is responsible for, and any objectives completed.
