It’s always extremely frustrating when an enemy shows up at close range and kills you with a shotgun in Valorant. Well, pro player Michael”shroud” Grzesiek was no exception. He was recently in a game alongside fellow Sentinels teammate Jordan.cellsisMontemurro in a Valorant ranked match, playing Viper. He was very vocal after being killed with a shorty and immediately expressed his frustration. Zellsis had a funny reaction to Shroud, explaining how the shotgun meta in Valorant The Shorty is one of the three shotguns in the game, and Jett and Raze players love playing it as a secondary weapon or as a sidearm.
Why has Shroud lost his cool?
Shroud’s team had a round score of 5-5 and he played Viper on Icebox. At the beginning of the clip we can see him playing in the Viper’s Pit with two other teammates and the enemy team had a man advantage as they had four players alive. Shroud was stationed near the A-Site entrance right next to the crate and a jett walked in on him at point-blank range, killing him instantly before speeding away. With the shorty, the Jett had dealt 108 damage with a headshot and seven body shots. However, despite having a Phantom in hand, Shroud managed to miss each of his bullets.
Under that caption, Shroud said: “The fact that I have to consider to play a $200 shorty is the worst goddamn design Valorant has thought of.Zellsis Shroud then explained that there was a time in Valorant when players could tap with a bucky from long distances. Shroud added: “she [Riot Games] I don’t know what the heck they do when it comes to shotguns.”
Funnily enough, Zellsis stops Shroud from further rampaging against the developers at Riot Games. He said, “woah woah [If] If you want to be a pro at Riot Games, you have to be a good boy. Riot is a great company, okay? You’re making a good game.”
Shotguns are the most unpopular weapon in most FPS games and the same is true in Valorant as they are devastatingly powerful weapons. The Bucky and Judge shotguns, and even Shorty, are powerful weapons when used in the right situations and in the right hands.
The following credits are required to purchase the shotguns in Valorant:
Shorty: 150 credits
Bucky: 850 credits
Judge: 1850 credits
The best thing about the clip is that the two teammates get along really well and have fun. Sentinels is taking a week-long hiatus before facing off against 100 Thieves in the North American Valorant Champions Tour Last Chance Qualifier (NA VCT LCQ).
