VALORANT Mobile continues to be tested in specific markets, and in recent weeks, plenty of content has made its way to the surface. Before this all-new point, VALORANT fans discovered that the mobile variant of the game boasted attractive MVP animations that showcased the best player in a match. Now, things have reached more serious proportions, as it has been discovered that VALORANT Mobile features practice maps populated with AI-powered bots.
It’s a fantastic feature that has never surfaced on the PC version of the game. In this new mobile-only feature, players can load into any map they desire, set up some bots, and practice to their heart’s content. For now, PC players will have to satisfy themselves with the very limited practice mode that has been available in the base game since it was released.
Does VALORANT Mobile Have a Full Practice Mode?
In snippets of gameplay that have been leaked from the testing of VALORANT Mobile, we’ve seen shots of bot-based gameplay on Ascent. It’s the only map that has been featured thus far, but it stands to reason that all of the game’s maps will be featured in this new mode. For a feature like this, there’s every opportunity that it would eventually find its way into the PC version of the game, but that’s just conjecture.
Here’s the clip that showcases the practice mode in VALORANT Mobile:
It seems like there are even some unique mechanics worked into the practice mode. For instance, we see pathways open up when the player successfully eliminates the bots, clearing the way to the sites. It goes beyond pinging static targets in the typical VALORANT practice range, that’s for sure.
This is the second feature that has proven to be unique to VALORANT Mobile which has PC players green with envy. Recently, the same leakers revealed a brand-new series of MVP animations in VALORANT Mobile that pay tribute to the best player in any given match. It goes beyond having a simple card to highlight the MVP of a match, and it’s a feature that boasts unique animations for each Agent.
Will We See VALORANT Mobile Esports?
It’s almost certain that we’ll see VALORANT Mobile esports whenever the game launches globally. There has been a rise in the popularity of mobile esports games in the last few years, and it’s only getting better with time. For instance, the introduction of PUBG Mobile proved to be a remarkably successful move, and in the esports space, the mobile version arguably took over the main game.
Again, this is conjecture – nothing has been confirmed yet, not even when the game will make it to the market. We’ll have to keep our eye on the social airwaves and see what fresh content is produced next.
