In this post, we detail what the Split map of Valorant is all about. We also reveal the key locations and tips to master it.

Because not all players have the time to play Valorant tens of hours a week to master it, we can use part of the time that we are not with keyboard and mouse in hand to develop strategies. Study maps such as Ascent, Bind, Haven or the one that concerns us is essential. For this reason, and as part of this complete guide, we bring you the analysis of the structure of the Split map. We also include various tips to lead your team to victory.

Main Calls at points A and B on Split Map

Split Map is divided into two different areas, A and B. As attackers, we can access point A through two routes: Main A and the ramp that connects to the Window. This is the fastest way to access the location, but if we have enough time and it fits within our team strategy, we can go around the sewers on the left that connect to the central area of ​​the map, through which we can take the shortcut of the ropes to get to Ventana from the back. However, the most common as attackers is to enter as a team and at the same time through Main A, covering the backs of our teammates and blocking the view of access that we do not intend to use.

On the other hand, in the middle, we can find one or two defenders. Ideally, if we want to take control of this area, we should enter through the door to the right of access to point B, since it is the shortest route. We can use skills such as the Fenix ​​or Reyna flash to quickly enter and destroy the defenders while they are blinded and defenseless.

Cheats and Tips on Split Maps

Finally, point A has two accesses, run through it or access it via Main B. At the entrance to Ventana, we can access it by turning around. Using fumes that cut off enemies’ vision, the most common way to attack this point is to enter all five at the same time through Main B. This way, we can clean the defenders more safely. Keep in mind that most of the objects found at this point are shot through by bullets, so we cannot use them as a safe cover.

In short, the fundamental thing in this map is to know the shortcuts that the ropes provide us to be able to use them to our advantage and to be able to foresee the movements of the enemy team.

Bug Fix and Graphic Updates on the Map

Furthermore, Valorant has updated its graphic quality this week:
