What Does “Thrifty” Mean In Valorant?

In the game Valorant, “thrifty” refers to a type of round outcome in which the round winning team won by spending significantly fewer credits than the opposing team. In other first-person shooter games, a thrifty round is very similar to an “eco” or “save” round.

To be considered a thrifty round, the team must spend less than 2,500 credits on each member for the round.

If a team wins with a significantly lesser buy, a “thrifty” message appears at the end of the round. You will see these thrifty messages attached with product placements in VCT matches, as it’s one of the ways Valorant makes money.
