Advice for consumers

This game has received a PEGI 16 because it features strong violence and sustained depictions of violence towards human characters. Not suitable for persons under 16 years of age.

Brief outline of the game

Valorant is a first-person tactical team shooter that allows players to strategize with a team of 4 other players in online 5v5 multiplayer gameplay. Every match, players select from a variety of guns to compete in "bomb plant & defuse" competitive gameplay, alternating between attack and defense positions.

Content specific issues

Combat violence is realistic as well as sustained, the difference between the two being the rapidity of a character’s death, which is allied to the weapon being used. Blood effects are seen whenever a character shot and head shots do not cause gross violence. Although team members and enemy characters remain in view after being killed, post-mortem mutilation is not possible.

Other issues

This game offers players the opportunity to purchase in-game items outside of the main game. Players can unlock cosmetic content such as weapon skins (ranging from simple re-colours to alternate models), Gun Buddies (small keychains that dangle off the player’s gun), or Player Cards (profile images). While a handful of these cosmetic items are unlockable through gameplay, many are only available to purchase in the cash store or made available through “Contracts”. A Contract is a content pass that players can purchase with real money that allows players to unlock content such as skins, character cards, and Gun Buddies as they play the game. Parents or carers may want to be aware of these options. Parents, carers or other responsible adults should check to see what is being offered before making any purchase on behalf of a child. It should be noted that the game can still be played without the need to purchase such items.
