If you like gunfight from a closer distance, Valorant’s Spectre is one of the best weapons you can get. We’ve broken up SMG so you can have an advantage in your next game.
The Spectre – SMG of dreams
Without a doubt, the Spectre is one of the best weapons in the current game, at least until the meta changes with new weapons, nerfs, and buffs. SMG is very suitable for an aggressive play that is oriented towards the side, especially at short to medium distances. Also, it’s a real bargain when a fully automatic weapon costs 1,600 credits (other automatic rifles usually cost more).
Damage, fire rate, shot pattern
First, the bad news: body blows and foot shots deal less damage to the gun than the cheaper SMG Stinger. It focuses on the first shot and therefore makes up for this slight weakness.
Just two or three headshots (depending on enemy armor) with the gun can kill opponents from up to twenty meters away – for a weapon designed for melee combat this is worth it. attention. Each shot in the head deals 78 damage with a speed of up to 13.33 shots per second.
One magazine offers 30 photos, so you will need to reload them often. There is another difficulty: shooting pattern. After the first series of bullets, the aiming became more and more difficult and the recoil gradually increased.
If you keep firing, you’ll notice that the Spectre jumps left to right while targeting, barely guessing the direction. One way to get around this problem is to fire in bursts.
Spectre is not a defensive weapon, if you want to keep a position there are definitely better options. Its high rate of fire and short-range damage make it ideal for surprise attacks or when you’re a defender to ambush an attacker. However, it should be played when on the offense.
When should you buy the Spectre?
In each team strategy shooter, each player in Valorant has to ask himself when to buy which weapon. The economy is important! Sometimes it is necessary to do an eco cycle to be able to buy good weapons later. There are many cheaper alternatives to the gun. There are also better options for the full purchase rounds, in which the weapon money is just blown away.
So when should you buy Spectre? When you are in the middle. You have enough money to buy something better, but if you lose that round, you will go bankrupt. In this case, it is the optimal choice. If the team buys in full, but you’re tightening up a bit more cash, then the gun could be a good choice too.
The Best Agents for the gun
Since the weapon itself supports aggressive gameplay, agents using it should also be more likely to use it. Phoenix or Jett will find a loyal companion in Spectre while on the flank, while Brim and Viper will be able to use it well in conjunction with their attacks.
