VALORANT differs significantly from CS: GO.

Riot Games' first-person shooter VALORANT bears remarkable similarities to CS: GO, one of the most popular games in the genre.

VALORANT is a hero-based tactical shooter that tracks the story of multiple agents. These hyper-natural characters come from the real world and are based on several different cultures, all of which seem to have some form of futuristic biological enhancement to make them the deadliest characters.

But VALORANT has a lot more to offer and is very different from CS: GO, although it maintains a similar game mechanic.

The biggest change affects hyper-natural, combat-ready agents. These agents are similar to Overwatch in that each one has their own set of skills and an ultimate ability. However, Riot has emphasized that these skills are merely tactical options, suggesting that the shooting game is the most important and important feature.

We currently know of 13 agents:

The range of weapons in VALORANT is huge with futuristic and modern weapons. The "Kingdom" rifle, for example, is a high-tech rifle that could have the ability to hit opponents with a headshot. Similar to CS: GO, however, there is a revolver in the game, but it will likely be as powerful as the Desert Eagle and not the R8 Revolve in CS: GO.

Iron sights are another big difference. It looks like all weapons have the ability to aim at targets, but it won't be as useful as it is in other games. Some weapons are similar to CS: GO, such as the AK-47, but have been adapted to the futuristic environment of VALORANT.

Points system 

The ground-based system in VALORANT is similar to CS: GO, but offers best-of-24 rounds instead of CS: GO's 30-round round progression system, with the winning team being the first to 16 or winner of overtime after each team has reached 15 rounds.

VALORANT's scoring system will include assailants versus defenders instead of terrorists and terrorists, suggesting the game could appeal to a wider competitive audience and endemic sponsorships.

Cheating system 

Valve's infamous VAC ban system has been criticized over the years for its ineffectiveness in tracking down scammers. There has been positive progress recently with the introduction of the Overwatch system, which allows certain players to view competitive games to see if a cheater was active. However, Riot didn't mention that it will implement a similar system.

VALORANT will use the anti-cheat platform in League of Legends Vanguard. This cheat detection program aims to eliminate tampering. VALORANT will introduce a server-authorizing game architecture that makes it impossible for fraudsters to use game-changing cheats such as teleportation or speed hacks.

Server tick rate 

One of the biggest differences from VALORANT is that public games can be played on servers with 128 ticks. This differs from CS: GO's 64-tick servers in regular matchmaking. This means that VALORANT is much more fluid on public servers, but is likely to remain stable. Riot aims to ping most players at 35ms, which means it improves hit registration and eliminates lag for most players.

Riot increases all player movements to 128 frames per second, even if the opponent is lagging behind due to a poor internet connection. So luckily, you won't get killed by players who skip the map.

As Riot mentioned in the official reveal trailer, this has amassed the Battle Against Peekers Advantage, which can give players an advantage on poor quality network connections.

VALORANT is set more on near-future earth than on CS: GO, a modern approach to warfare. It is similar to League of Legends with its contrasting colors and sharp edges.

But most will associate the style with Overwatch as it is a bit cartoonish yet realistic.

VALORANT is expected to launch sometime this summer and is free to play at launch, similar to CS: GO.
