    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 items to buy in order to defeat his opponents. In this topic, we are going to talk about game shields, their importance and impact within the game.



    Within Valorant, shields are defensive items used to protect agents within matches. Once their shield has been destroyed, the player must wait until the next round before they can buy a new shield.

    The game currently has two different shields, the light shield and the heavy shield.

    light shield

    Light Shield costs a total of 400 credits. It absorbs 66% of the total damage taken, and it will break after absorbing 25 damage.

    By investing his credits in a shield, the player increases his chances of winning the round. By purchasing a Light Shield, for example, the player can survive a greater number of shots from an opposing weapon, or survive a headshot from a Ghost. With the Heavy shield, for example, the player will be able to survive a headshot from a Phantom, which is one of the most powerful weapons in the game.
