(UPDATE: All contests and sweepstakes have ended as of 1pm EST, May 5th, but we’re extending all other aspects of the event for another week, meaning you can play the tasks and get your Player Card until May 12th at 1pm EST! This announcement has been edited to remove or update any references to the giveaways.)

As part of our official partnership with the VALORANT NA Challenger series, we’re stoked to announce the first Aim Lab Combine for VALORANT players! We’re doing a whole lot of new stuff for and during the event:

  • Test your fundamental VALORANT skills
  • See how you stack up against friends and pros
  • Get a unique Player Card
  • Link your Riot Games account on the web to start importing your VALORANT stats

Let’s break it all down.

Test (and Train) Your Skills
This Combine is our first step on the journey to bring you unique ways to improve your VALORANT performance.

To do that, we’ve created six tasks that’ll help you both understand where you rank against thousands of other players in fundamental measurements (accuracy, speed, reaction time, and tracking), and help teach (or reinforce) the basics of skills like wallpeeking and entry-fragging a site.

The six tasks are:

  • VCT Combine Headshot - test your ability to keep your cursor at headshot level as you flick from target to target.
  • VCT Combine Microflex - test your ability to make small aim corrections.
  • VCT Combine Tracking - keep your cursor on a moving target
  • VCT Combine Trigger Control - measure your reaction time and ability to distinguish friend and foe
  • VCT Combine Wallpeak - destroy bots (they shoot back!) while peeking from behind a wall
  • VCT Combine Haven C-site Entry - practice clearing a site without overexposing yourself to common defensive positions

Show us what you got, and then, afterwards ...

See How You Stack Up
You can secure bragging rights during the Combine in two ways.

The first is the usual assortment of task-specific leaderboards and an overall leaderboard for cumulative scores.

More importantly, you can create a unique Player Card with your preferred agent, and share it on Twitter to show us how you did.

The Player Card will contain your fundamental measurements from the six tasks (accuracy, speed, reaction time, and tracking ability), along with percentiles for each measurement and your average task score. We’ll update your Player Card each time you improve your performance in a task.

Player Profiles (beta) and VALORANT Stats (coming soon)
If that isn’t enough new, exciting stuff, we’re launching new features on the web as well! There’s a totally new section where you can see your task history, scores/metrics, and track your improvement.

And in the very near future, we’re also going to launch the ability to link your Riot Games account. What does that mean? It means we’ll be able to start importing your VALORANT match history and analyzing your in-game performance, in order to answer two very fundamental questions:

  • Is your Aim Lab training paying off in-game?
  • What tasks should you focus on based off your in-game performance?

This is our first foray into game-specific data, and we’ll be bringing you unique stats, and some new stat splits/breakdowns to help identify precisely where there’s room for improvement.

Bear with us as we work out some kinks during our beta period, but we’re extremely excited to start giving you insights into your in-game performance, and using those insights to help inform your training and measure improvement!

The Combine ends on May 12th, and we’re excited to keep bringing you new tasks, events, and stats to help understand and improve your VALORANT performance. Join us on Discord or follow us on Twitter to keep up to speed on new developments, or let us know what you’d like to see next!
