IceBox

  • Type of map: Tactical, utility-based “cut angles” based agent set

Ganesh 'SkRossi' Gangadhar is making waves as the quintessential “Indian Jett”. Professionals and fans alike often applaud and respect his ability to hold angles, even in difficult game situations. His Operator skills are almost unparalleled in the Indian Valorant scene.

Talking about Icebox, he says, “Icebox is a very tactical and utility-based map compared to other maps in Valorant. It has many high ground positions to hold. My go-to agent is the Viper, for cutting angles with its toxic screen, alongside rows of spit and post-planting Viper one-sided cigarettes. ”

SkRossi says he also loves using Jett with the Operator to take up high ground positions. “Other than that, Sage can block angles to ensure a safe plant, and Sova and Killjoy can hold sites and flanks while helping Viper slow down his opponent with Molly and Shock Darts,” he adds.



SkRossi tips for the ice box:

  1. Always check every corner when approaching B from the attacker's spawn using Drone or Sova Recon.
  2. Play extremely disciplined after planting the spike with the Viper and Killjoy formations.
  3. Make the most of Jett's ability to use high terrain as the map is wide and the Operator excels at long range to hold angles and pick fights.

Jayanth 'skillZ' Ramesh is among the emerging Indian stars in Valorant. He shows versatility depending on the team's needs, which is particularly useful for catching opponents off guard during the draft. His favorite agent is Killjoy, but he is also a fearsome duelist when playing Raze.

Talking about Haven, he says, “This map is very reactive and information-dependent. I think it favors the attack as there are three locations to plant. “My preferred agent is Phoenix as there are fewer angles to check when entering a location after using your Blaze Wall. His curveball breaks the crossfire at site B and the garage. ”

For the defense site, he says, “Astra's abilities help take control of the A lobby and Gravity Well is really good for backsites of all three A longs. Sova's Drone and Recon can also control A for a long time. Make sure you keep a Sentinel like Killjoy or Cypher thanks to their ultimates. ”

SkRossi tips for the ice box:

  1. Always check every corner when approaching B from the attacker's spawn using Drone or Sova Recon.
  2. Play extremely disciplined after planting the spike with the Viper and Killjoy formations.
  3. Make the most of Jett's ability to use high terrain as the map is wide and the Operator excels at long range to hold angles and pick fights.

SkillZ Tips for Haven:



  1. For attackers, playing the pattern and taking control of the map gradually will help you win if you manage fast reactive plays and rotations based on the information.
  2. Leave a teammate behind every now and then to make sure you have information.
  3. For defenders, start the round with fights around maps where rotations can occur quickly.
  4. If mid-round you don't have information, I recommend a double push or a flash peeking A long, Garage or even out of B.

Split

  • Type of map: tactical, division-oriented, utility bait

Bhavin 'HellrangeR' Kotwani is the game leader for Global Esports. He calls the shots and builds the composition and strategies. He plays an important role in maintaining the team's morale and keeping it lively. When asked about the Split map, he said, “Just like the name, most teams split up on the attacking side for control and/or information. of the map. “Split is a very tactical map. Baiting out utility is a very critical part of this map on the offense side as it is very heavy on defense. ”

HellrangeR says that Breach, Omen, Raze, Jett and Killjoy are his ideal team composition. “As the map has a lot of choke points, Breach blinks and Raze's utility helps take control of the attacking side. Likewise, on the defensive side, they help stop pushing or giving up early advantage. Specifically, he also mentions that Killjoy is crucial for holding down one side of the map and Omen is useful for eliminating choke angles.

HellrangeR Tips for Split:

  1. Understand how to bypass bottlenecks with your utilities.
  2. Make sure you get control of the map or information before it's too late. Remember to lure the utilities on the attacking side.
  3. Using Jett along with Breach flashes and Omen's paranoia to create smoke is an important tactic to master on this map.
