This article shows the stats, skins, and the various buffs and nerfs of Valorant Ares.
Valorant Ares Description
Weapon Type: Primary – Machine Gun
The Ares is a low-cost Machine Gun that is a bit special as it starts with a low fire-rate that ramps up as you fire it longer. However, as with most automatic weapons, the Ares suffers from incredible recoil once it reaches its maximum rate of fire. To compensate for this, fire in bursts and make good use of the accurate first shots and the Ares’ innate high damage to score kills.
2-3 Round Bursts Is Recommended
Testing the Ares shows that the first 2-3 rounds exhibit little recoil, landing squarely on its target. However, it is highly recommended that you introduce a bit of pause after each bursts as continuously firing or having little to no pause will have the same recoil as that of firing it in full-auto. As a cue to start firing again, wait for the Ares to settle down after a burst.
