Riot Games announced a new game mode for Valorant called Replication. The new mode will only be available from May 11 until May 25, 2021.

Replication allows all players on the same team to play as the same agent, the agent to be selected is decided in pre-match voting. Abilities and minus ultimate are refreshes each round.

“With Replication, we are looking to create exciting and novel moments by widening the player theory-crafting space while highlighting Agent abilities. Quintupling down on Agents that were balanced around normal Agent restrictions, we’ve created lots of hilarious near game-breaking plays for players to discover.”

Detailed rules:

  • BO9 Unrated Rules with time adjustments
    • 80 second round length
    • 45-second pistol round w/30-second subsequent rounds
  • All players on the same team are the same Agent
    • Players vote on which agent to be during a modified version of the selection screen, and then everyone plays the winner.
  • Abilities (except Ultimate) are refreshed every round
    • Players gain +1 Ult points per round at the start of the round (except Overtime)
  • Players have a set amount of Creds each round regardless of win/loss
    • Round Cred Amounts:
      • 900
      • 2400
      • 3900
      • 6000
    • Gun/Shield are reset each round
  • Being flashed twice within a 4-second window grants FLASHGUARD to the player
    • FLASHGUARD: Cannot be blinded.  Duration: 5 seconds.

Developed by the League of Legends developer, Riot Games, Valorant is a 5 vs 5 tactical shooter with superpowers. Inspired by Counter Strike, the game rewards precision, teamwork, and strategy.

Riot Games was founded in 2006 by Brandon Beck and Marc Merrill with the intent to change the way video games are made and supported for players. In 2009, Riot released its debut title League of Legends to worldwide acclaim. The game has since gone on to become one of the most played PC games and shortly became a key driver of the explosive growth of eSports.
