No matter what your role is, the way you approach playing your agent changes from map go map. Each map has its own playstyle that’s unique and as important as it is to play your own brand of Valorant. It’s also just as important to understand how to do so in relation to the map.

In this guide, we’re taking a deep dive into the Ascent map to understand how this map plays, from map specifics go team comps we’ll have everything covered so make sure you stick with me.

Ascent Map Overview

Ascent is a map with a mix of long-range angles and close-quarter duels so weapons ranging from the OP to the judge are all viable. The map has 2 doors, one located in the market connecting to B site and the other in the garden connecting to A site.

These doors are exclusively controlled by the defending side at the start of the round and allow the defending team to drastically change their strategy. 

One of the most important aspect of Ascent is mid. Taking control of mid allows the attacking team open an extra avenue onto the A or B bomb site.
