In the grand scheme of the game, the goal of VALORANT is to accomplish tasks, mostly bomb plants or defuses, by eliminating the enemy team. That might be the simplest method to victory, but the variety of ways you can win are much broader than just hitting shots.
Unlike games like Call of Duty, there are so many aspects to VALORANT that allow for players to win rounds without ever firing a single bullet, or landing one on an enemy. Thanks to the plethora of utility that teams can fit together from the agent pool, the resulting complexity of strategy allows for smart players to defeat enemies who can only aim well. Aim and kills still matter, but it just ain’t that simple in VALORANT.
