A VALORANT player has discovered a way to plant the Spike outside of a site on Pearl, creating a useful plant spot that might enrage the enemy.
Picking the right spot to plant the Spike in VALORANT is a crucial decision. It''s important to ensure the spot can be covered without putting your team to the test or that it does not give the attackers an advantage. Some sites are well-suited for post-plant abilities, while others are cheeky and difficult to counter.
Independent-You-1789 has already established a solid plant spot on Pearls A site that allows players to plant the Spike just outside the site. Players must line themselves up in the corner towards A Secret, and the Spike will be placed on the stairs leading out of the area.
Players may alter certain abilities to protect the Spike, which makes it harder for attackers to defuse it. For example, the Sages wall may protect the Spike from the rest of the site, forcing attackers to wrap through A Secret or destroy the wall. Some players will also be confused when they cant find the Spike, putting in some precious time.
Players must select a specific spot at this plant location, which can be challenging when the timer is ticking or enemies are rotating from B. However, mastering the position can help their team lose the Spike in a good location and provide an advantage.
