New Map: Icebox
VALORANT’s newest map was designed to pit you against the enemy, featuring two bomb sites, tactical challenges, and zip lines. Lead Leve Designer Salvatore “Volcano” Garozzo says “the gameplay premise of Icebox is that each of the sites are intended to be complex combat spaces that feature plenty of cover and verticality. There’s also a zipline on the map that amplifies the feeling of action and verticality”. The map will be available with the update, on October 13.

The Singularity skin lines will be available for the following weapons: Spectre, Sheriff, Ares, Melee, and the Phantom. The thematic revolves around a powerful energy that is still mysterious, unknown, yet attempted to be tamed.
