This expertise is closely linked to their choice of keybinds. Below, we see that Derrek's keybinds align closely with those of other Valorant pros, with a few distinctions in ability usage.
- Use/Equip Ability 1: C Key
- Use/Equip Ability 2: Q Key

DerrekOW Valorant Map Settings
In examining Derrek's Valorant minimap settings, it's clear he prefers using a fixed map configuration. This setup means the map doesn't rotate, maintaining a consistent orientation based on his side, with the map centered around his character.
Such a setting likely offers more consistency in navigation and spatial awareness, traits that are crucial for a former Overwatch pro adept at managing complex environments even when bombarded with utility.
For Valorant players who might find themselves disoriented by effects like Omen's Paranoia or being flashed amidst deploying smokes, adopting Derrek's fixed map setting could prove beneficial for maintaining a sense of direction during chaotic gameplay moments.
