The Valorant players were spoiled yesterday by the presence of Ignition Act 2. From the release of Killjoy, the second season of Battle Pass full of attractive prizes, to the latest Bundle for Glitchpop skins. Do not stop there, the developer plans to present a new mode, namely Deathmatch, which is likely to be launched today, August 5, 2020 to be precise.
This latest mode will be free-for-all, which means it can be played by all players without the need for certain conditions. From the explanation of the main Producer and Riot Games Product Manager, Jared Berbach in Deathmatch mode is still in beta for content improvement so that when the official release is released the players can enjoy this mode without any slight disability.
Talking about the format, in this mode 10 players will be challenged about shooting accuracy and map mastery. The reason is, when playing Deathmatch, players don't need money to buy weapons or skills from each Agent. When entering the mode, all pure players use their respective skills in using weapons.
The matches in this mode will take approximately six minutes or one player has reached 30 kills. The Deathmatch mode function looks like it will be very suitable for warming up before plunging into the Competitive. Instead of just shooting at bots that are quite boring or playing unrated for a long time, this mode can be the best option.
One more thing you should know is that in this mode there is no Defender or Attacker, so you don't need a Spike when playing Deathmatch mode. When you die, you will respawn at random locations and are immune from being shot for eight seconds.
Maybe in some aspects the players still feel that something needs to be adjusted so that their playing experience can be maximized. Therefore, Riot Games does not want to take the risk to immediately release this mode.
