Brimstone is a heavy supportlike anchor who is able to use his orbital arsenal to ensure his squad always has the advantage. His ability to deliver utility precisely and safely make him the unmatched boots-on-the-ground commander. Brimstone is great for someone who enjoys supporting their team through support and fire power to assist their team by flushing enemies out.
Brimstone Overview Infographic
We put together a Brimstone overview infographic that has the best loadouts, strengths, weaknesses, abilities and info as we currently have during this beta release of Valorant. Make sure to share with your friends and check back here to get the latest updates. This guide is a work in progress and we will keep it as up to date as possible.

- No real means of defending himself besides through aggressive play.
- His fire field can be easily avoided.
- Sky Smoke and Orbital Strike both need map interaction and a wind-up time.
Sky Smoke (Signature)
Sky Smoke allows you to use your map to call in orbital deployment smokescreens that obscure vision. Using this can be very helpful to keep enemies from rushing too quickly or to cover a retreat. It can also be used at the beginning of the round to lay a trap or keep enemies from seeing your movements.
Orbital Strike (Ultimate)
Orbital Strike lets you use your map to target a location, launching a devastating orbital strike that pulses for high damage over seconds. Acting like artillery, this creates the ability to flush enemies out from a strong point they are holding. Also damaging or killing players that refuse to move. This gives your team a tactical advantage by flushing enemies out and killing them one by one.
Incendiary launches an incendiary grenade that deploys a damage field of fire. This can be used to back enemies up or used to actually kill enemy players. This could also be used as a distraction to flank enemy players.
Stem Beacon ability allows you to target a nearby location to deploy a beacon allowing nearby teammates to have rapid fire for a short period of time. This can be used to allow your team to suppress the enemy while advancing or killing enemies right out.
Loadouts can mean the win or lose of a round. If you don’t have the right tools you can’t get the job done. When playing Brimstone, you need a loadout that is versatile and able to help support your team. A great loadout for this would be:
- Pirmary: Vandal assault rifle
- Secondary: Shorty sidearm or the Sheriff revolver
With that combo you have the ability to lay lead down range and, if needed, high damage output for close range. When using this setup the goal is to keep the enemies heads down and keep your distance. But in case that’s not possible, your secondary will ensure you have the power and damage output needed.
