Valorant: Weapons Guide - Damage Stats, Spray Patterns and Cost

Riot's new competitive shooter Valorant is shaping up to one of the most anticipated games of the year. Get ahead of the rest with our Valorant weapons guide giving you an idea of what to expect from the game's guns before release!

Riot's new competitive shooter Valorant is shaping up to one of the most anticipated games of the year and part of the reason why is Riot are promising to bring a level of gunplay not seen since CS:GO.

That means guns will have low time to kills, be skill-based and have learnable recoil patterns or spray patterns.

Learning how each gun works will be the key to your success. In this guide, we will outline each gun in the game, their unique characteristics, like fire-rate and the damage they deal and their cost.

 

Valorant: Weapon Guide

 

Valorant has six categories of weapons; Rifles, Snipers, SMGs, Shotguns, Heavys and Sidearms. If you are familiar with just about any other game you will know what these primary functions and ranges are so we won’t bore you with that. 

Players can carry three weapons at any time, a primary, a secondary gun or sidearm and a knife. Players will drop weapons on their death and these can be picked up.

Players purchase guns at the start of each round and will keep them if they finish the round alive. You can also request a teammate buy you a weapon at the start of the round.

Players will gain credit each round depending on their performance in the previous round with extra credit rewarded for kills, planting or defending the bomb site etc.

Some weapons have Alternative Fire modes, often a Zoom Mode function - in Zoom mode weapons have a slower fire rate but less spread.

Spray or recoil patterns will be included in the guide when they are available.
