Shroud announces his return to using the Vandal again in Valorant

Recently, Shroud watched the VCT NA Stage 3: Challengers Playoff match between XSET vs Envy. During the match, he saw the prowess of the Phantom in the game, and he explained how the weapon can help create some plays compared to the Vandal. However, it seems like he doesn’t care about it that much because he revealed that the Vandal is in his good books again.

“I’m back on the Vandal, by the way. Back on it. I don’t know what it is. But I’m f****** back on it.”

Over the past few weeks, Shroud has made some horrible mistakes while using the Vandal. This has caused him to move away from using it, and join the Phantom side. He even acknowledged here that the weapon ‘sucks’. However, it seems like he will still use it to play Valorant competitively and casually.

“It sucks. The Vandal sucks. But I don’t know.”

Can’t explain why he wants to use the Vandal

During the stream, Shroud tried to make sense of why he was going back to the Vandal. He enjoys using the Phantom and has preferred this weapon over the other AR for a long time. But, it seems like his heart is still with the Vandal, and he will be using it again soon.

“But I don’t know what it is. I feel like I’m back on the Vandal. My brain is just like ‘f*** yeah, let’s go’.”

It remains to be seen how long his love-hate relationship with the Vandal will continue. He has had a lot of rages while using the weapon in the Riot Games title. So it seems like fans won’t have a dearth of Shroud rages soon.
