Silver 2 Valorant Rank | All You Need To Know
With more players trying out Valorant for the first time, more and more players are entering the Competitive game mode. In this article we will be discussing the Silver 2 rank.
Is Silver 2 good in Valorant?
In Valorant’s Competitive mode, Silver 2 is the second rank in the second lowest division. This means that it’s not something to brag about but also shows that you know a thing or two. And with our help you can quickly pick up some easy concepts.
How to rank up from Silver 2
Map specific strategies
Because of how Valorant’s rank distribution works, this is the elo where most of the players benefit from adding more strategy to their game. Sure it won't be super well executed, or have positive results every time, but Silver 2 is the perfect elo to start. Maps like Ascent, Breeze and Icebox among others have some of the most map and agent specific tactics. Learning these and abusing them for free round wins are a great way to improve your climb.
Find a main role
This is also the elo where you need to start thinking about becoming a specialist. Being a jack of all trades but master of none, will hurt your climb significantly. If you just came off a 30 kill Jett game, and locked in Viper in the next game, you will not be able to adjust your playstyle. That means you will not do what a Viper needs to do to win.
Jett has different win conditions and so has Viper. Picking a main role ensures you know your job regardless of the agent in that class you are playing.
That brings us to our next topic which is how team composition affects how you play. You might be the best Reyna player in Silver, but if your team already has 4 Duelists on Breeze, you will do better by locking in Brimstone. Trust me. It’s a gamble, and you can never trust your team. But some maps are punishing for bad players and you will have a horrible time trying to play without utility.
Smokes are too strong
Many players fail to realize how powerful smokes are in this game, and it upsets me very much. Some maps like Breeze, Ascent, and Haven are literally unplayable without smoke because of the Operator usage. Not only do they obstruct vision but they also serve to split the map in pieces. Trying to attack a site through one way smokes is a death sentence, and apart from a Sova Drone or Skye Tiger, there is not a lot you can do to push safely through them.
What percentile is Silver 2 in Valorant?
Silver 2 in Valorant holds around 9,5% of the entire playerbase participating in the Competitive game mode. This is one of the highest player distributions and it only gets harder to rank up from here.
