“Where should I hold the spike” in Valorant is a question that not everyone knows the exact answer to?
In Valorant, the goals of the two factions when competing are completely opposite to each other. For the defensive side, the player’s job is to prevent the enemy from placing bombs and defending the bombsites. In contrast, with the attacking side, gamers will have to bring the spike (bomb) to a certain location and proceed to place the bomb to be able to win.
Surely anyone who plays Valorant has also encountered a scene where people fight (or push) the spike whenever they are on the offensive side. Also because Valorant has many playing positions such as Duelist, Controller, Sentinel and Initiator, the gameplay of each position is completely different. From here, the Valorant community has spawned another extremely difficult question “Who will hold the spike in Valorant?”
Recently, a Reddit user posted an article discussing who should be the spike holder in Valorant and received a lot of attention from the community.
discussion time: who carries the spike? from VALORANT
“Who should hold spikes – or in other words, who should NOT hold them” – He posed an interesting question. And to answer the above comment, we certainly have to do some small analysis.
First, the spike holder is definitely not a Duelist. Duelists often take on the responsibility of rushing into the site and changing lives, creating space. If you have to lie down in a bad position while your teammates can’t keep up, Spike will be in the control of the defenders, from which the win rate will be significantly reduced.
At this point, many people will think that, if Duelist is not the one holding the spike, then the Sentinel – a defensive role should hold the spike right? Not necessarily so. The Sentinels often play as a lurker on the offensive side – the one who goes solo and gets information for the team. And unfortunately going odd and dropping the spike is also a very bad thing, almost certainly a losing game if Lurker holds a bomb and gets caught.
So in short, the person holding the bomb should not be the Duelist and the Lurker players, apart from those 2 positions, anyone can and should hold a bomb to support the team. That person can be a Controller, Initiator or even a Sentinel (if not lurk like when using Sage). In addition, you can also drop bombs in a safe location, slow down, take choke points and return for bombs when you really clear the site, similar to the way pro players often use. used in tournament matches.
