Here we will talk about some warm-up routines which are followed by top players which you can use to improve your aim in Valorant.
- Aim labs: Aim labs is an aim training software available that can be downloaded from Steam’s official website or directly from your Steam client, just get into aimlabs and it will show you some playlists which you can play according to your game.
- Kovaaks: Kovaaks is another aim training software available on Steam, but unlike aimlabs it’s the paid version of the same.
- Deathmatch: Deathmatch is a great way to warm up in Valorant since it challenges you with real in-game scenarios which will be faced by you when you get into a competitive match. Pro Players generally Prefer playing at least three to four matches of this mode before getting into a competitive match.
- The Range: Range is a training area that is available in-game by default. In Range, people can practice their aim, kill bots to learn gun mechanics and test new weapons and practice their reaction time by playing default bot training routines.

Try to Avoid Going Solo Queue
Top players who consistently reach Radiant rank in the game always try to avoid going solo queue if they can, the reason being lack of coordination and communication with random players and the burden of carrying them every game. While it is not always possible to avoid solo queues, playing with a team can help mitigate these issues and improve your chances of winning.
Playing with a team allows you to coordinate effectively, communicate well, and develop strategies that work for everyone. It also allows you to build a positive and supportive atmosphere, which can make the game more enjoyable.
Always Play for the Team and Not for the Kills
Playing for the team increases your chances of converting those very close rounds, which can almost change the whole game. Playing for the team means you are not baiting your teammates, giving them weapons whenever they are broke, and always communicating your plays. Players who are stuck in low ranks generally think too much about getting more kills. In Valorant, winning more rounds is more important than getting more kills. The goal of the game is to win the match, and winning rounds is the key to achieving that goal.
While getting kills is important in the game, it is not the only factor that decides the outcome of the game. Kills can give your team an advantage, but they do not necessarily convert into winning rounds. Winning rounds requires strategic play and coordinating with your teammates. In fact, focusing too much on getting kills can sometimes be detrimental to your team’s success. Players who prioritize kills over teamwork may engage in risky plays or neglect important objectives, which can hurt their team’s chances of winning.
That being said, getting kills is still an important part of the game, as it can help your team gain momentum and control over the game. However, it should not be the sole focus of your gameplay.
Always Promote Your Team and Stay Positive
Promoting and appreciating your team when they are doing good in the game can make your team do better in the game. Appreciation will help keep them stay focused, and your team will try much harder to win the rounds because they will look for your appreciation.
Staying positive and not being toxic when your team is doing well is also a factor that will help you win more matches. Staying positive can help reduce toxicity in the game. Toxic behavior, such as insults, harassment, or grief, can create a negative atmosphere and make the game less enjoyable for everyone.
Stick to Your Main Agents and Master them
Sticking to your main agents and learning them will help you avoid any confusion, not even pro players play every agent in the game; they always stick to a few of their main agents and master them until they are one of the best. You can understand your agents by learning their line-ups (if they have one), watching streams of top players playing your agent, and trying to mimic their plays.
Playing your main agents regularly can help you develop expertise in that agent’s abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. This can give you an advantage over other players who are less familiar with that agent
