Here is all you need to know about Valorant Episode 3 Act 2

Valorant is preparing to alter its focus towards Episode 3 Act 2 and players are already beginning to get excited about what can be expected.

With the gaming community making the most of Episode 3 Act 1, which was released on 22nd June 2021, Riot Games are already working on what could come next on their free-to-play action-packed hero shooter.

Players participate as heroes - that are designed in several countries and cultures around the world, assigned to either an attacking or defending side in teams of five combatants.

Unique abilities can be activated through kills, deaths or spike actions to get the better of the enemy during battles, with every player starting off with a “classic” pistol with weapons scattered across the map.

With new content on the horizon, information is limited at this stage and we will provide updates once more details are unveiled.
