How to peek corners in Valorant like a pro: a quick guide to the Valorant Geometry

To gain an advantage over your enemies, you don’t always need to shoot well, aim quickly, and so on. You do, however, need to know the geometry of the maps and how to peek corners in Valorant.

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.
