Valorant vs CS:GO Killer
At first glance, both Valorant and CS: GO may look similar, and since the closed-beta, many CS: GO fans have criticized it as a copy of their favourite game. But they have a few differences that make them different. Some of the elements that both the games have in common, such as guns, the movements, and the economy and the maps have small but significant differences.

Moreover, in contrast to CS: GO, the Fire and Alternate Fire modes in this game have a different rate of fire and damage. A few games also reported that in the game you might need to wait between shots for a longer time to get it perfect.
