To improve the ping, a VALORANT player sits atop a cell tower ...

By booting up VALORANT from the top of a cell tower, one VALORANT fan took the phrase ping diff to another level.

On the VALORANT subreddit, a TikTok video showed someone standing on the edge of a cell tower and sitting on the main screen for VALORANT with the caption POV: you are sick of bad internet.

The video, titled "Infamous-Ad6981," begins with a close-up of a gaming laptop screen and features the unknown player getting ready to queue up for a contest of competitive VALORANT. Above the screen on the laptop, trees and hills are shown, and the video shows how high the player is by looking out into the middle of a cell tower. Although playing VALORANT on low ping may be daunting, having to clutch a round around 200 feet in the air would be difficult

Regardless of the game title, internet ping has a big role in how online matches play out. VALORANT players have moved across the country to play from Texas just because the ping advantage is so strong. It can be difficult to play VALORANT without good ping, because internet speed and the amount of time it takes to reach a server can determine when an enemy sees a player versus when an opponent is.

Despite the fact that ping is a huge factor in gun battles, it is unlikely to scale a tower hundreds of feet in the air for a small ping advantage. Hold heaven on Haven or Split, and not in real life.
