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 Ghost.
The Ghost is one of the most expensive pistols in the game, costing a total of 500 credits. This means that at the start of each half in Valorant, you cannot pair a Ghost purchase with a shield of light. Instead, it only leaves room for skill purchases. It's a significant trade-off to make that cheaper weapons like the Frenzy or Classic don't force you to make. A huge plus is that the Ghost is the only pistol in Valorant with a silencer, which means it's easier to hit multiple shots at enemies as they try to figure out where the shots are coming from.
The Ghost does a lot of damage and is especially rewarding for a precise aim. Hitting the target's body or leg with the Ghost does slightly more damage than shots with the Classic or Frenzy. However, headshots do much more damage. Up to thirty meters, Ghost headshot instantly kills a non-shield opponent.
The damage of a Ghost headshot drops significantly after thirty meters. However, the Ghost remains incredibly powerful, dealing more damage at any range than all other side weapons except the Sheriff.Read also

Below you can see a table with the Ghost information made available by Riot Games itself.
With fifteen bullets in her magazine, firing at a rate of 6,75 rounds per second, the Ghost is capable of doing a lot of damage in a short amount of time. Even if you're just hitting body shots, it will take four to six bullets to take down the enemy.
The Ghost is a very accurate weapon, especially for a pistol. Its fast rate of fire has a very low impact on its accuracy when compared to other pistols such as the Frenzy and Sheriff. Up to twenty meters, you can safely shoot high frequency with the Ghost so that you hit your target safely. And even at thirty meters, the first bullets will still be very accurate.
The Ghost is not a weapon you actively think about recoil control with. In Valorant, there simply aren't many locations with such long distances that Ghost recoil becomes an active issue. In the few cases where you're facing an opponent from thirty meters or more, the best strategy to apply is double tap: the Ghost's first two bullets are incredibly accurate, even at a distance of fifty meters.
