Good thing we clutched that last game, after multiple back-to-back loses. I can sleep now.
Snowball fight is back on VALORANT! The mode is different from the regular modes, in that the primary gear is replaced with a snowball shooter. It does not offer agents the abilities though, and is based on the same maps as regular ones. My first game of the day was based at Icebox, where I clutched the MVP title with 15 kills.
Along with this update, a new agent by the name KAY/O is announced. Apparently they can block the enemy agents’ skills! I cannot wait to unlock them.
On my latest VALORANT game, we had the lead at 4-3, and it was our final plant. 5 Viper agents vs 5 Yoru agents. My team sped to site A while I took the other direction. Besides one agent B, everyone else were A. Tackled the one at B and ran fast to the other site, via their base. We were 3-1 agents by that time.
The other 2 die. I backtrack a bit, reach mid ground, walk to site A, clutched with a final headshot. A nice blue background appeared as well, which apparently is a skill from Yoru. I am yet to try Yoru.
It had been a busy few days at my end.
VALORANT greeted with a pleasant surprise tonight though. There’s a new map! Breeze! I have no clue how old this is, but I am definitely enjoy the new view.
VALORANT has a new event today! It’s a cute snowball fight mode, where you are spawned at random locations and shoot snow balls at the other team. This is very similar to death match, expect that this is a 5v5 mode. Gift boxes seem to spawn at random times as well, unlocking extra abilities. So far, I could obtain skates, rapid fire, ricochet and growball. No clue what the last two are. Check it out if you haven’t! No update required to the game itself.
Riot’s official announcement is below.
It’s just Spike Rush, but I am very happy about this win.
Custom queue is disabled as well, so, it took a few attempts at Spike Rush to get to the map.
