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 them being the Sheriff.

Of the pistols present in Valorant, the Sheriff is the highest priced in the game, costing a total of 800 credits, which is equivalent to the total credits available at the start of an offense or defense half in Valorant. For just 200 more credits, you can now buy the Stinger, which is an SMG. The Sheriff isn't a weapon you can mindlessly buy when you're low on cash: it's making a real investment.

So what are you investing in, buying Sheriff? The answer is simple, it's investing in damage. The Sheriff has as its main characteristic the potential to take out any opponent with a headshot – even an enemy at full health with a heavy shield intact dies on impact. After a 30 meter range, an opponent with full health and a full heavy shield will be able to withstand a Sheriff's bullet to the head, however any slightly damaged opponent will drop their bullet.

The Sheriff does more damage than any of the other pistols with a single bullet. Its damage drop is also the lowest, but there are some consequences that using the weapon brings. Its rate of fire is incredibly slow: it can fire four rounds per second. With only six bullets in the chamber, you must either hit the target or suffer the consequence of a painfully long reload time.

Another consequence that the use of the Sheriff brings is its lack of precision. Up close, you can control the Sheriff's recoil better - she will reliably hit the target and deal lethal damage. However, from twenty meters, the recoil becomes visible. Like all recoil in Valorant, the Sheriff's recoil starts to creep upwards, with bullets spreading out over an ever-increasing region.

Despite the consequences, the Sheriff rewards the user. It is a weapon intended for those who can, quickly and decisively, land a shot in the opponent's head. If you find yourself in a situation where your opponent is more than twenty meters away, trying to kill them with a quick burst of fire is not a good strategy. Instead, quickly find cover, readjust your aim, and try another shot at your opponent.
