Riot Games will be officially stepping into the first-person shooter genre when Valorant hits the market later this year. This title is a character-based tactical FPS game where two teams of five compete to eliminate each other and be crowned victorious. Within the game, in addition to choosing his character, the player will also have a variety of weapons to buy in order to defeat his opponents. In this topic, we are going to talk about all the elite rifles present in Valorant. Currently, the game has two different elite rifles, one of them being the Marshal.
Elite Marshal's Rifle
The Marshal is a relatively cheap weapon in Valorant, costing 1100 credits. Its main purpose is to defend areas where you can find the enemy from afar. Usually, the Marshal is used in economic rounds or when the player needs to defend a location from a long distance, but doesn't have the money for better equipment.
As expected from an elite rifle, the Marshal does a great deal of damage. A headshot is a guaranteed kill on any target. A bodyshot will kill an enemy without a shield, but it won't be enough to take down an enemy that has any kind of shield. Shots landing on the target's leg will take a good amount of health from your opponent, but you'll need to hit them one more time, anywhere on their body, to ensure a kill.

As in the vast majority of sniper rifles present in most FPS games, the Marshal has an extremely low rate of fire: it fires 1,5 bullets per second, being the weapon with the second lowest rate of fire in the game. The Marshal can fire five times before needing to be reloaded.
When the player is stationary, the Marshal is 100% accurate when you shoot while zooming in. The weapon's scope provides a 2,5x zoom, giving the player a huge advantage in long-range combat. Despite being a weapon intended for the player to use in his zoom mode, the Marshal is quite accurate, even when the player does not use his magnified scope. If you are ambushed by an enemy at close range, you don't have to wait for the zoom animation to play. You can just shoot, and still do a lot of damage to your opponent. Even if you shoot as fast as possible, the Marshal does not recoil.
Despite this factor, it is recommended that the player use the shooting mode with extended sights to ensure better accuracy on the target.
