The games have a lot of similarities with the weapons and strategies that players devise. But along with that, both the developers have created an experience that differs a lot, which fans appreciate. However, Shroud feels that Valorant might want to add a very iconic pistol from CS: GO to its weapons arsenal.

Shroud wants CS: GO’s Five-Seven in Valorant

Shroud recently reacted to the grand final of IEM Cologne 2021 between Na’ Vi and G2. He has watched a lot of matches and gave a lot of insight as he is the tournament’s official streaming partner. While watching this match, he noticed the prowess of the popular competitive CS: GO pistol in the Five-Seven. He then stated he wanted a weapon like that on Valorant as well. Currently, the popular FPS title only has five pistols.

“The Five-Seven, dude. I wish Valorant had a weapon like that.”

The weapon in-between Ghost and Sheriff

Shroud later explained the reason why he wanted to play with a Five-Seven on the Riot Games title. He mentioned that he wanted a pistol that works between the Ghost and the Sheriff. In CS: GO, the closest weapon to the Ghost is the USP-S, with the Sheriff being close to the Desert Eagle.

Shroud noted that the game needed a non-suppressed pistol, which isn’t as loud as the Sheriff. So having a weapon like the Five-Season should add more variety to the gameplay. However, unlike Valorant, CS: GO only offers this pistol to competitors playing as Terrorists.

“They have the Ghost, but I don’t want a suppressed one. I want a loud one, but then they have the Sheriff. I don’t want the Sheriff. I want that in-between there.”

In the end, there are pros and cons of having a pistol like Five-Seven in Valorant. Having this pistol on one side of the field can definitely cause a mismatch, and if the developers intend to bring a weapon like this, then they need to make sure that it works for everyone.
