Riot officially confirms that Team Deathmatch is finally coming to VALORANT. Riot Games has finally heard the woes of serious Valorant players who were not satisfied with the current Deathmatch even if it is just for practice. Complaints of poor spawns, kill-based Deathmatch, and more were plenty. It is a good thing that Riot has finally decided to expand the practice pool.
The recently released Dev Diaries video for 2023 showcased a lot of things, including a small VALORANT Team Deathmatch teaser at the end. In the latest video, Anna Donlon and Andy Ho have teased new Valorant modes, including an all-new Team Deathmatch mode.
As you might have known from experience, we Valorant players only have a few options to practice online. We only have the range, custom mode, or Deathmatch to choose from. All of these, according to the players, are full of flaws.
Valorant’s executive producer, Anna Donlon, teased a Team Deathmatch mode that will let us players hone our skills in a better environment. In the new video, Anna and Andy revealed that new Valorant modes are in the works. Besides Swift Play, they teased a new Team Deathmatch mode for upcoming patches.
“We’ll see you soon. Maybe playing a new agent or a new map. In premier or at a live event. Maybe check out one of those new modes Andy was talking about, like Swiftplay, or the one I’m excited about: our take on Team Deathmatch,” according to Donlon.
However, that is all they revealed about the Deathmatch. Thankfully, our favorite VALORANT leakers are on the case. ValorLeaks came to the rescue and gave us that juicy tidbit of information that we are all craving.
Team Deathmatch Details Leaked
According to ValorLeaks, Riot codenamed the new game mode as HURM and will be precisely what it sounds like. Valorant’s Team Deathmatch will be a fast-paced mode of gameplay where two teams will race to get 100 kills. The interesting addition to this game mode, besides the fact that there are two teams, is that the new mode will allow abilities.
This new Team Deathmatch will be entirely different from the existing one. Players will have their abilities enabled, which means you may also practice your darts, grenades, and Nanoswarms. It would be an excellent opportunity to whip out damage-dealing tools and practice lineups against real players.
Besides the damage-dealing abilities, using those utilities to their fullest advantage requires practice. Having the Team Deathmatch game mode will finally enable us to practice our utility for the all-important competitive games.
Besides that, two teams of five will participate in the Team Deathmatch. Whoever tallies 100 kills first wins. The mode will be simple but cut-throat. It’s unclear how the spawns in this mode would work, but it may remain the same as the regular Deathmatch mode. The time limit is also not yet revealed.
For more information, we likely have to wait and see from Riot or ValorLeaks announce them. In the meantime, go to our website to read more articles. You can also follow us on Twitter to stay updated with the latest esports and gaming news.
