Many fans have copied Shroud’s playstyle in the game. They follow all his tips and tricks, and they even try to emulate him in the game. He has quite the knowledge about the game as well, and finds new stuff about the weapons, agents and the maps in Valorant. Recently, he even talked about two of the game’s biggest entities and gave some very unpopular opinions about them.

Shroud not a huge fan of Omen in Valorant

Recently, Shroud watched a VCT Stage 3 NA- Challengers 1 match between Gen.G Esports and Envy. While spectating the ninth round on Bind, he talked about the agent Omen in Valorant. Both teams in the match used Omen, but Shroud couldn’t understand why players were still playing as him in the game.

“I can’t believe people are still picking up Omen.”

He later revealed that he didn’t like Omen in Valorant, and he thought that he wasn’t good to play with. Omen has its fair share of lovers and haters. People who enjoy taking the stealth route would prefer to use him. But other experienced players might not enjoy his range of abilities in the game.

“I don’t like Omen. I don’t think he is good.”

He might switch to Phantom from Vandal

Along with that, Shroud also dropped another bombshell about the game’s most popular rifle in the Vandal. While watching the Sentinels battle it out against the Kansas City Pioneers, he noticed TenZ going on a tear with the Phantom. He later hyped up the weapon and compared it to his favorite in the Vandal. In the end, he mentioned that he might stop using it and switch over to a much faster weapon in the Phantom.

“This is the Phantom right here. You see that, Vandal would never in a million years pull that off. Never. I have got to stop using the Vandal.”

It seems like Shroud has two major unpopular opinions about Valorant. The community might disagree a lot about the power of Omen and the Vandal in the game. But Shroud might find a new meta in some other agent or weapon, and when he does, there will be pandemonium in the community.
