It’s been almost a year since Valorant evolved from the beta phase and since then the game has attracted unreal hype, luring a plethora of professional players.
Although the game has unique abilities similar to Overwatch, it leans more towards the theme than that of CSGO. Just like the latter, players do stand a chance to select from a range of weapons to play with.
When Compared to CSGO, load-outs bear no difference. Just like the former, Valorant got a wide pallet of choices, right from pistols to snipers.
Alongside any weapon can be bought irrespective of what side you’re playing upon, be it the attacking or defensive side, unlike CSGO where the AK-47 and M4A4 are exclusively available to the Ts and CTs respectively.
