There are 17 weapons on Valorant at the launch of the Riot Games FPS. Which purchase should be favored and in which situation? It will depend on your economy, and your style of play. Dive into Valorant's in-game store to talk about damage, recoil and magazine capacity.

Valorant: Advanced Weapons Guide

Valorant is Riot Games' new FPS. Players compete in 5v5 in games where the first team to 13 rounds wins. A round consists of 45 seconds of preparation, 1 minute and 40 seconds of the main match and possibly an additional 45 seconds if a spike is detonated.

To win these rounds, you can count on your allies, your agent and his/her four abilities as well as a choice of 17 different weapons including 5 secondary weapons and 12 main weapons.

These 17 weapons differ in many ways from each other:

  • Damage
  • Charger Capacity
  • Accuracy
  • Recoil
  • Firing Rate
  • Price
  • Special Uses (sights, semi-auto shooting...)
  • Wall Penetration
  • Stability

These are all criteria that will define THE moment when a weapon will be useful.
