Watch: Shroud Showing Off His Skills In New Valorant Map

Published 06/11/2020, 8:14 AM EDT


Shroud recently tried out the new map in Valorant named Ascent. The map is quite of Venice what with the resemblance to Italian architecture. The closed-beta had only three maps. However, we were teased about this one long before the game went live. It was thus, quite exciting to see Shroud showing off his skills in this new map.

Shroud was playing as Reyna, the new character who was added to the agents’ list. If one looks at it carefully, there are similarities with more than one map from CS: GO. There is a likeness to ‘Italy’ and ‘Inferno’ from Counter-Strike. 
Nevertheless, with sudden choke points and plenty cover, Ascent will soon become one of the most played maps on Valorant.

Shroud shows off his skills on the new Valorant map

Shroud’s skill is never in doubt but sometimes we cannot really believe how quick his reflexes are. 
When someone asked Shroud about his opinion on Reyna, he said, “She is good, she is not too good though. She fits really well.”
Riot Games has put in enormous effort to make the characters out-of-the-box. At the same time, the devs have also ensured that these characters fit right in place. 
There was a moment in the game when the score was 11-7, and Shroud almost clutched the round. He was the last player standing and took down three before he went down. We could all learn a little something about how to use Reyna’s abilities.
The way Shroud demonstrates how to dominate games in Valorant almost makes it look like a cakewalk.

With Valorant now available to the world, some significant debates have been rising. For instance, this is a game that redefines the entire FPS genre. Shroud himself said before that the skill ceiling required for Valorant is quite lower than a game like CS: GO. Nonetheless, Riot is trying to captivate the minds of every gamer and not just FPS lovers.
