Project A is Riot’s character-based tactical shooter released to celebrate the company’s 10th anniversary. The game was later given the title “Valorant”. It features a 5v5 tactical shootout between 2 teams as they attacked and defended. The team to win 13 rounds first is declared the winner, much like its predecessor, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
However, thinking that these two games are similar would be a big mistake. As the developers at Riot decided to add another layer of depth to Valorant. In Valorant, players can select from 20 agents, with new ones added every season. Each agent has their own set of tactical and ultimate abilities that are meant to complement a team composition.
Valorant even features different game modes, such as Escalation, Deathmatch, and Replication, which are similar to the classic game mode but with a twist. On the bright side, many PC games have been transitioning into mobile games recently, including “Apex Legends”. As a result, the mobile version of Valorant is also expected to come before the year ends. But to take a similar experience, people have to settle for alternatives now.
Here we prepared a list of the top 5 games that are similar to Valorant in some capacity or the other. Although these games aren’t Valorant, they are the closest thing to it on mobile, so feel free to check them out!
1. Critical Ops: Multiplayer FPS
On the top of the list is the “Critical Ops” game, a 4v4 tactical FPS game with many weapons to choose from. Critical Ops is the closest a mobile game has gotten to Valorant, with its weapon designs, movement mechanics, and even some map layouts.
Critical Ops offers its users different game modes, much like Valorant emulates. There are 3 game modes offered:
- Team Deathmatch
Each has a slightly different challenge from the previous one, but it is worth playing. Critical Ops even has a quite popular ranked system and is currently one of the biggest mobile FPS games. Although it is essential to mention that, in critical ops: Multiplayer FPS, users don’t have any special abilities or powers, unlike in Valorant.
2. Apex Legends Mobile
Respawn’s fast-paced battle royal game, Apex Legends Mobile, is coming up in second place. Twenty squads of 3 members each are dropped off on “Kings Canyon”, and teams fight until only 1 squad standing as the zone closes. Apex Legends, much like Valorant, offers a variety of “Legends” for players to choose from, making unique team compositions possible.
However, unlike the slow-paced tactical shootout, Apex Legends Mobile is all about positioning and strategy. This is where the game slightly differs, but the essence of the game is pretty much the same.
3. Infinity Ops
Featuring tactical shootouts set in a futuristic world, Infinity Ops is a pretty good candidate for a game resembling Valorant. Additionally, Infinity Ops offers quite a lot of diversity by having several different classes, including Recruit, Saboteur, Tank, and Assault, each with their own abilities and ultimates.
The game offers three clear modes: Team Deathmatch, Deathmatch, and Hardcore. A wonderful cross between the cyberpunk world and the sci-fi style of designs for weapons and armaments. Although Infinity Ops isn’t quite the same as Valorant due to its face- paced gameplay, it still feels a little similar.
4. T3 Arena
T3 Arena is one of the newest Hero-Shooter released by XD Entertainment Pte Ltd, featuring stunning visuals and extremely cool abilities. Face off against opponents in teams of 3, in which each hero has a unique gun and tactical and ultimate abilities. In addition, there are several game modes to indulge in – Team Deathmatch, Clash, Payload Escort, and many more.
Although this game doesn’t check all the boxes and resembles Overwatch more, T3 Arena is still one of the best FPS games on mobile. The game also supports competitive gameplay, with a dedicated leaderboard that allows players to check who is the best at using specific Heroes by checking their stats on the leaderboard.
5. Call Of Duty: Mobile
Everyone knows about Call of Duty: Mobile, one of the best mobile FPS games of all time. COD Mobile offers so much to the users, plenty of different game modes, maps, operators, scorestreaks, and insanely cool movement mechanics. There is no doubt that COD Mobile was the closest to resembling the feel of a PC FPS game.
Currently, COD mobile has garnered the attention of many eSports organizations and is seeing some of its biggest hype in recent times, so not only does it offer insane gameplay but also the potential to join organizations and perhaps get paid as well.
Aside from its fast-paced gameplay and superpowers, Valorant and CODM are pretty much the same games. They feature different game modes, season battle-pass, unique skins for personalization, and the potential to get paid for being good at the game.
We present the best 5 games closest to Valorant that you can try out on mobile. Valorant has a playstyle quite difficult to emulate on mobile, but these few games are similar in one aspect or the other. In the near future, the developers at Riot will release a mobile version of Valorant for its fans. But for now, settle for these 5 games.
