We’re on Haven, in the 12th round of the second map of the series. G2 Esports is on attack with a chance to tie the match in the last round of the first half. There is a serious problem though, they’re pretty broke as you can see above. They don’t have any chances in long-range gun fights since all members of G2, excluding keloqs, have a Spectre, but having Jett’s and Killjoy’s ultimates available gives them hope to win the round. Let’s watch what’s going to happen during the round.

It was pretty fast and looked like a randomly successful execution on A site. Yes, it was quick, but not random. Let’s dissect the round and investigate it step by step.

Step 1:

As the first step of execution, keloqz activated his knives and ran toward A long, taking help from Skye’s flash. Skye’s flash had two purposes here: gathering information from A long and making sure nobody could peek keloqz. Jett’s smoke in the entrance prevented the enemy (if there was somebody) from learning how many G2 players there were. These moves were going to push the player from A long to inside of the bombsite, if someone held that angle.

While everyone was busy with their own jobs, m1xwell was protecting his teammates. He put Killjoy’s alarm bot on mid-window to cut an early Fnatic rush from the middle and used the turret in the corner of outside A lobby. The turret’s location is critical for two reasons: first of all, it protects all G2 members from flanks, and secondly, it gives enough room for Derke to push all the way up C long, which causes Fnatic to early rotate to A bombsite.

Step 2:

Keloqz rushed to A long, assured himself that nobody was there and then revealed himself to Sova’s arrow. Because of all the footsteps in A lobby and keloqz’s movements, Fnatic’s players decided to rotate toward A from other bombsites, which was exactly what G2 Esports wanted. They had SMGs and Jett’s knives and were willing to fight inside of the bombsite.

After the showcase on A long, G2 Esports started to take positions. Koldamenta cleared all A short with Skye’s wolf and made way for keloqz. By this time, Cypher and Phoenix already left their positions and were rotating to A. 

Step 3:

G2 was ready to explode into A bombsite. After clearing A short, four members of G2 took their positions there while AvovA was sending the smokes to A heaven and CT-link, then prepared for the perfect Paranoia.

And boom! Fnatic’s two members have died while being fully blind, not knowing what happened. There are three crucial points in this short clip that you should pay attention to.

Before using his updraft and dash, keloqz smoked the top of the boxes to be protected from getting blinded by his teammate, Skye’s, flash, which blinded the front and the right side of the bombsite.

There were two Fnatic members in the backside who were fully blinded by AvovA’s Paranoia that was sent from A long. It was keloqz’s job to hit the final strike. He dashed, hunted one of them down, then his teammate AvovA arrived from A Long and secured the second kill.

The whole execution took 27 seconds and won the round for G2 Esports. From beginning to end G2 had one plan which it performed perfectly. Comprehending everything during a round is so hard in Valorant. We can figure out the great tactics like this one after splitting the steps up and considering them one by one.

This is the end of the first episode of Valorant 101 series. I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed writing. Until next time, don’t forget to apply this tactic to your ranked games with your friends!
