In this guide, we’ll be covering how to peek corners in Valorant and some corner peeking techniques, and for that, we need to understand more about how map geometry works in Valorant.
So, let’s learn how to peek corners in Valorant
Let’s consider an example:
Two players are behind a wall, but the first player sees the second player before he’s seen by the second player. Why? I’ll explain. It has to do with the distance that each player is from the corner. The farther away you are from the corner, the earlier you will see what is around the corner. Keep this in mind as it is the most important takeaway from this guide. While moving around a map, you should always have a rough idea of where your enemy is. This is the starting point to understanding how you should move and how to peek corners in Valorant.
Key things about peeking corners in Valorant
On the Bind map, for example, when moving toward Window through the middle of the map, it is logical to expect an enemy to take a position in the passage. If so, then this corner is important for us.
For the enemy, this corner remains the same distance from him. But we can choose how far to position ourselves from it. To gain an advantage, we move along the wall farthest from the corner, which gives us a better view than our opponent.
Here’s a situation where we can see our opponent, but he can’t see us.
And here’s an example of poor movement:
We don’t see the enemy at all, while he can see half of our body.
Let’s look at one more corner, the last one in this guide.
Poor control at B Long
This is an example of poor control at B Long. Why? It’s simple. I can’t even see my enemy, and he can already kill me.
An example from his perspective.
But, if you look at the same position from a different angle, the result is different: I see my opponent before he sees me.
As I have previously mentioned, to shoot well, you need to do more than just learn to aim quickly. It’s also important to know how to correctly move your character model to gain an advantage.
Well, that’s it for this guide on how to peek corners in Valorant. My advice is to practice in custom games before you play in competitive matches. Good luck!
