What is Spike Rush?

Spike Rush is a fast paced, quicker game mode in VALORANT. Every player on offense has a spike and there are pickupable powerups like hyper speed, crippling decay, and damage amp. Buy phase has been replaced with a barrier phase, and you use what ever weapon you get.

Players:  10 (5v5)

Round length: 1 min 20 seconds

Barrier phase: 25 seconds

Game length: First to 4 (switch sides after 3)

Exp: 1,000

First look at Spike Rush gameplay:

The new game mode's name was announced on ESPN Esports va Joe Ziegler (@riotziegler). Spike Rush.

What we know, per Ziegler, is that it is similar to the core game place of VALORANT but a much shorter game length. It is designed to be quick fun and something you can play in about 10 minutes. It is meant to be a fun experience for inbetween games, or a quick warmup, or cool down / cool off.

From the v1 patch notes: "Spike Rush (beta) also arrives to deliver a fresh and more hectic flavor of VALORANT."
