Weapons and stats - Valorant

Learn about every weapon in Valorant, its stats, and how best to use it in combat.

1

There are a lot of weapons in Valorant. Depending on your playstyle, and perhaps your funds, picking the right weapon for the round is going to be important. The only way you can do this, is if you know the details of every weapon in your arsenal.

All weapons - Valorant

Players will find 18 weapons available in Valorant. Of these eighteen weapons, only two will be the most commonly used: the tactical knife and classic pistol. The reason for this is that these are the two weapons every player spawns with in the first round. Now whether or not you use these in the first round or buy another weapon is going to come down to your team's strategy. However, these two weapons make up the foundation of the experience and you should practice using them.

Under construction: The following guide is being developed as we get more hands-on time with Valorant. Anticipate more details on each weapon, including strategies and general thoughts, in the coming days. For now, enjoy some stats.


Melee

There is not a lot of information about the only melee weapon in Valorant, but as Doug always says, "You run faster with a knife", and the same holds true here. If you can account for the weapon-swap time, consider holding the knife to quickly get around the map. This also does considerable damage and will likely be a great option if you manage to flank someone.
