    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 pistols present in Valorant. Currently, the game has five different types of pistols, one of which is the Classic



    Classic pistol

    The Classic is Valorant's default pistol. When spawning at the start of the game or respawning at the start of a new round after dying in the previous round, everyone gets Classic for free. If, later in the match, you want to switch from another pistol to the Classic, it will also cost you exactly zero credits. Classic is free all the time.

    Below, you can see a table with the Classic information provided by Riot Games itself.

    The Classic does average damage with its bullets when compared to other pistols in Valorant. Near mid-range, you'll need to hit the enemy with two bullets to the head to take them down if you're at full health, whether you've bought shields or not. In the worst case, when you are at long range and can only hit your opponent's legs, it takes nine shots to take them down. The Classic can fire twelve shots before you need to reload.


    Like all Valorant weapons, the Classic recoils when you fire. At close range, firing quickly doesn't affect your aim much with the Classic. However, from about twenty meters, the indentation starts to become visible.
    Her recoil spreads upward in random patterns. The best way to control the Classic's recoil is by using so-called 'tapping', which is about firing individual bullets at a reduced rate of fire. This allows your crosshair to be reset to its original position. Trying to mitigate the pullback of classic by slowly dragging the mouse to counter the upward trend is not so helpful as the spread of the pullback is unpredictable.


    The Classic is one of the few weapons in VALORANT with an 'alternative fire' mode. When you right-click with the pistol equipped, it fires three shots at once. However, his shots are more inaccurate. Effectively doubles as a mini shotgun. Each of the three bullets does as much damage as a bullet fired using the weapon's main shot.
