VALORANT: How to Play Raze

by | Sep 30, 2022 | Guides - Valorant

Raze is arguably the most enrage-inspiring agent that is currently available in Valorant. She stands out from the other agents in Valorant since her skill set is almost entirely devoted to doing direct damage. Although it’s not difficult to understand how she can do what she does, there’s a lot more to her than meets the eye. You may learn some top-notch strategies for making the most of this explosive display skill from our Valorant Raze guide.

Is Raze the Right Agent For You?


  • Powerful damaging abilities that makes her the best entry fragger out of all duelists
  • High mobility skill that fits well with the rest of her abilities


  • A very complex ability kit that requires a lot of practice
  • Vulnerable against long ranged agents

Raze Abilities

Boom Bot

EQUIP a Boom Bot. FIRE will deploy the bot, causing it to travel in a straight line on the ground, bouncing off walls. The Boom Bot will lock on to any enemies in its frontal cone and chase them, exploding for heavy damage if it reaches them.

Blast Pack

INSTANTLY throw a Blast Pack that will stick to surfaces.
RE-USE the ability after deployment to detonate, damaging and moving anything hit.

Paint Shells

EQUIP a cluster grenade. FIRE to throw the grenade, which does damage and creates sub-munitions, each doing damage to anyone in their range.

ULTIMATE – Showstopper

EQUIP a rocket launcher. FIRE shoots a rocket that does massive area damage on contact with anything.

The Road to A Raze Main

Painting The Entry

Raze won’t be particularly effective if you play too passively, just like any other Duelist. Raze shouldn’t be a team’s most aggressive flanker because he lacks any blinding or vision-obscuring powers. Without this kind of equipment, winning 1v1 battles can be challenging. On the other hand, she shouldn’t be watching from the sidelines while her team advances. There is a desirable middle ground.

Utilizing your team’s newfound space as you go forward should be a major focus of your abilities. Deploying a Boom Bot, for instance, around a corner or into uncharted area, can be beneficial. But if Raze or another Agent pushes up alongside this lethal drone, you may get even more use out of the ability because the enemy team will be overrun trying to take down both the player and the deadly robot at once!

Faster than Jett?

Such momentum has the potential to make the opposition’s teams struggle. When utilizing her Blast Packs, the same reasoning holds true. Raze can put them at her feet, or even on neighboring walls, and use the detonation to reach new locations rather than hurling them out for little harm. Just watch out for how close she throws them, as you can’t toss these explosives very far.

Agents of the enemy can be maintaining a specific angle. Raze can erupt well beyond their anticipated fire and take them by surprise rather than jiggle-peeking it. Raze may be in a position to shoot them down before they can alter their aim.

Best & Worst Maps for Raze

Raze’s abilities such as the Boombot is a fantastic resource on Haven maps that should allow you to evict players from any of the different hiding places on the bomb sites. Her Showstopper also becomes considerably more perilous because of the numerous little hallways and tight curves.


  • Bind
  • Haven


  • Breeze
