It’s been a while since Riot Games has issued a new game mode for its popular FPS Valorant, but a new leak suggests one could be on the way sooner rather than later. The big surprise is that instead of the typical team-based gameplay it’s a 1v1 mode that pits two players against each other.
The leak comes by way of well-known dataminer ValorLeaks, who posted his findings earlier today over on Twitter:

As you can see, the image highlights what appears to be some sort of beta testing for a potential 1v1 mode. ValorLeaks later includes more information from his sources that indicate it’s either a best of 10 or best of 13 design. Could this be a mode designed for Twitch streamers and influencers to hash it out?
It’s important to note this is clearly some sort of early in-house testing that is by no means guaranteed to make it into the game as a full release. There’s no official word from Riot Games about a 1v1 mode at all so far.
We’ll let you know if we hear anything more moving forward and keep this article updated.
