Episode 3 of Valorant Act I arrives with tons of updates in different areas of the game. The mini-makeover suggests a restructuring goal is on the horizon.

Riot Games has taken care of their Valorant mega shooter with consistent patch updates. However, Episode 3 will change Valorant forever.

Riot's tactical shooter has all the basic ingredients of an action-packed first-person game, but a large player base hailing from traditional FPS had their reservations. Players often criticized Valorant for mediocre gunplay, childish visuals, and powerful abilities that clouded the true spirit of FPS. With each patch, Valorant has improved. But, the recent one shows the developer's vision for its shooter who has flawless gun play.

Episode 3 Act I arrives with tons of updates in different areas of the game. The mini-makeover suggests a restructuring goal is on the horizon.

“CSGO STYLE” KAY/O ISN’T A FAN OF HEAVY UTILITY

Unlimited power and loose cannon destroyer Kay / O enters Valorant with a familiar set of tools. CSGO players are very used to double flashbang, to the utility limit of a single Molotov. The new agent also wears the same equipment, with an additional Suppression Dagger. His entire team highlights the gun game.

Kay / O can deal damage, destroy abilities, and attack enemies. In simpler terms, the agent has a no-nonsense set of tools that will revolutionize the meta. Her powers hint that the Valorant developers are eventually improving the gun game and bringing more attention to weapons. Unfortunately, the war machine does not have any alien abilities, but it is the developer's way of countering the post-plant meta, which limits Valorant's uniqueness.

At first glance, Kay / O may look like a complex Terminator, but Ryan Cousart, an agent designer, believes that she is the simplest agent designed for players coming from other titles.

"What if they (new players) didn't have to worry about VALORANT abilities? We were like, 'lets just shut it off and then have them worry about their gun stuff," He said.

With Kay / O joining the team, players will be forced to hone their goals as they cannot fully rely on their abilities. Previously, there was hardly any way to counter the powers of other agents. However, by adding Kay / O, the developer has reminded players that Valorant is a shooter at the end of the day.

MORE FOCUS ON WEAPONS

Episode 3 brings good news for players who prefer to spend an hour on the driving range rather than learning Molotov lineups. The economic rework makes it clear that balanced gunplay is the future of Valorant.

While most of Valorant's weapon inventory will be available for cheap rates, abilities will see an increase in price. This price change will likely lower the meta, forcing players to make smart decisions during the purchase phase, whether you want to buy a swarm that will become useless at zero points or invests money in a gun that will remain solid at all conditions.

The economic change combined with Kay / O's power to destroy utility will be rewarding for players with fancy goals. At tournaments, spectators will be able to see more marksmanship duels and exciting gun games, along with the clever use of tools instead of darts in all directions.

RUN AND GUN, NO MORE!

With all of these changes drastically impacting the meta, the nerfs to run and weapon mechanics will be the final nail in the coffin of a poor gun game. A large part of the Valorant community has been lamenting that new players get easy wins because shooting is easy. The developers have promised that upcoming patches will tweak the run-and-shoot mechanics, ruining ranked games.

"While we believe that there are certain situations that moving and shooting should be powerful, it is currently more potent than we'd like," Lead designers Max Grossman and Sal Garozzo explained, "We aim to tighten up combat while trying to maintain as much intuition and muscle memory as possible," they said.

Los jugadores de Valorant verán un cambio masivo en el juego si la solución de correr y disparar da en el blanco esta vez. Combinado con los cambios de precio de las "armas trol:" Judge y Shorty, a los jugadores serios les resultará más fácil subir de rango.

With new tweets, the game will be even more welcoming to traditional theatrical FPS players who are not fans of the Earth-shaking sky agent skills in need of deep knowledge of the valence. Los jugadores que no se subieron al carro de la exageración beta de Valorant tienen mucho que ponerse al día. Este puede ser el momento perfecto para unirse a la exageración en la parte posterior del futurista Terminator, ya que solo tendrá que "preocuparse por las armas".
