Top 5 tips on how to improve your kill-death ratio

1. Learn from the professionals.

Spending a large amount of your time playing the game will help you practice your skills. However, it is also important to observe how international players and other professionals play the game. 

2. Aim Train.

This is one of the important things to practice before jumping into the game. Warming up in the Practice Range in VALORANT will help you practice your aiming skills and also build your muscle memory.

3. Learn recoil and spray patterns.

There are different kinds of weapons in VALORANT, and each one has a unique spraying pattern and different recoil. Take time to familiarize yourself with each to learn how to use them effectively. 

4. Find a crosshair and customize your settings that will best suit you. 

You can use a sens converter to find what sensitivity your mouse should have for you to play the game with ease. If you are a newbie, replicating a professional player's crosshair is the best option until you find what sensitivity best suits you. 

5. Know what every agent does.

This is one of the basic things a new player of VALORANT should start with. Knowing the damage of Raze's Grenade or the sound that an Omen's Ultimate creates will allow you to prepare when it comes to avoiding death, as well as making outplays that will surprise your enemy.
