    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 Frenzy.

    At a cost of 400 credits, Frenzy sits right in the middle when it comes to the cost of sidearms in Valorant. It is more expensive than Classic, which is free, and Shorty, which costs 200 credits. However, the Frenzy is slightly cheaper than the Ghost, and only half the price of the Sheriff. A Frenzy can be bought in the first round of each half, in addition to a Shield of Light if you choose not to buy skills for your agent, or buy it alongside some skills.

    Below, you can see a table with the information on Shorty made available by Riot Games.

    Frenzy's bullets deal almost identical damage to Classic. Up to 20 meters, both weapons deal exactly the same amount of damage. Frenzy's damage drops faster, however. While Classic's threshold for damage drop is thirty meters, Frenzy deals less damage to its target, starting at twenty meters. Not only does it have a shorter range before damage starts dropping, but bullet damage is also reduced.

    The Frenzy has an upside: it's fully automatic and fires quickly. The Frenzy's rate of fire is ten rounds per second, which means it quickly blasts opponents. With that in mind, the Frenzy does much more damage per second than the Classic, especially up to twenty meters away from the target.

    The Frenzy's high blast comes at a price: it has plenty of recoil. After the first two bullets, the Frenzy accelerates upwards, where it stabilizes for the last few shots. At short range, the recoil isn't too bad. However, at medium to long range, the Frenzy's recoil is quite severe and difficult to control.

    There are two ways to mitigate the Frenzy recoil. The first is to simply fire in short bursts: fire two bullets, let the aim reset, and fire again. This is the best tactic to apply when you are trying to hit an opponent from a greater distance. The second, in close combat, the best way to combat the Frenzy's recoil is to drag your crosshairs down to neutralize the recoil.
