How to reach Immortal tier in Valorant
Valorant was designed from the ground up by Riot Games to be a premier competitive experience. With a strong emphasis on gunplay and tactical strategy, the ceiling for skill is quite high in this FPS.
This guide features the discipline one must follow in order to reach a higher rank irrespective of the agent preference.
Improve Your Aim
Improving your aim is one of the most important factors in order to improve your gameplay and reach a higher rank. One must always make and perform a set of warmup drills and practice drills every day before entering into a match.
The basic way of practising gunplay is by jumping into The Range and playing the 50 streak and 100 streak modes. You can also use aim trainers to further enhance your aim like Aim Labs and Kovacs. There are over 1,000 scenarios for training your aim in different ways and it is recommended to play tasks related to flicking and tracking.
Crosshair placement is as simple as it sounds – placing your crosshair for your own advantage and helping yourself out when approaching an enemy.
Many believe that crosshair placement can only be improved by just playing the game more. But that's not true. You can always jump into a custom match server and move around the map and keep placing the crosshair at the most probable angles you think the enemies can pop out from. The most effective tip is to keep your crosshair on the head level.
Effective Positioning and Peeking
Ever wonder why does your enemy manage to kill you always even though your aim is decent and you react on time. It's because you aren't holding the right spot. This largely happens when you are playing a defender or post-plant. To improve your Positioning try holding various spots on the map and see which works the best for you.
During retake or execution, you must not rush in immediately. Take a second to think where the enemies are hiding and then peek accordingly. Do not wide peek. While you are peeking ensure that you or not exposed to more than two spots where enemies are hiding. Peeking into a site is like slicing a pie, cut each slice and then enter the site.
The bottom line is, there's no "shortcut" to easily jump through Valorant's ranks. You're going to have to put the work in to see success.
