Developed by Riot Games, a game production and distribution company based in Los Angeles/California, Valorant stands out as one of the most popular FPS games of recent times. First released under the codename Project A in October 2019, the game began its closed beta period with limited access on April 7, 2020, and was then officially released on June 2, 2020.
There are 16 agents in total in the game, and each agent’s abilities and ultimate (Skills are the name of the strongest skill in the games we use while playing) are different from each other. There are 5 characters that come automatically at first. These are Sage, Jett, Phoenix, Brimstone and Sova. The main purpose of the game is to install the spike if you are on the attacking side, if you are on the defending side, try not to have the spike installed.
In Valorant, where there are 5 different modes, there are ranked, unranked, death war, copy and special games. Depending on the updates in general, different modes such as climbing mode or snowball battle mode are also coming instead of copy mode.
There are 6 map pools in the game. These maps are Split, Ascent, Haven, Icebox, Breeze and Bind. Each map has its own unique gameplay. For example, on some maps, there are two different spike installation places (sides) named A and B. But on the Haven map, there are zones A, B and C. The use of sniper weapons (Operator or Marshal) is preferred as the gameplay distances are long on some of the maps.
The game includes a battle ticket system and consists of 50 parts. It can be purchased for a certain vp (valorant point). You can unlock these parts by earning XP. You can earn more xp by doing daily and weekly tasks in the game. The game contains radianite. With these you can only unlock different colors of weapon upgrades and skins. The battle ticket lasts for 50 days in total and arrives at the night market 20 days before it expires. You can get 6 discounted weapon skins from there within a certain period of time.

Usually most skins are taken by many players for their finish.
Although it takes time to learn the skills of the characters, it is one of the most enjoyable FPS games I have played. It is improving itself day by day with the updates coming. Although it is a newly released game (it celebrated its 1st year in the past months), the number of times it has been played is quite high. It is the ideal game for both those who want to play a war game and those who want to enjoy the game more by using abilities and ultimates.
