Brimstone Tips and Tricks
Brimstone is a basic champion and if you haven’t played before it is useful to start playing with him first. All his abilities are easy to use, but you need to position yourself right. You see Brimstone’s E – Sky Smoke and X(ultimate) – Orbital Strike are not instant and you need to pick the location on map where to strike. So the first tip is to learn the map and radius of Brimstone’s abilities. Stand in a safe position within the active radius of your ability and pick the position as fast and accurate as you can. It will be useful to activate Brimstone’s ultimate after Cypher’s so that you’ll definitely know where to strike.
The other useful tip is to block vision for your enemies with Sky Smoke but pay attention to two things. First, don’t block the vision of your teammates and second don’t put all three charge into one lane. That will uncover your position and enemies will be wafting for you there. Or if you want to confuse them then activate all of them in one place and go into the other location, for example, behind their backs.
In addition, you can use smoke when you are planting or disarming the spike. But again don’t block the vision for your teammates. Try to put the smoke not on the spike but in corridors or next to it.
These are the basic things you should know before start playing Valorant with Brimstone.
