Through its twitter account, Valorant showed by images the new aspect that Split will have for its return to the map rotation. In total there are seven changes that the developer applied, with the aim of making the map easier to navigate and complicating positioning in the corners.
The move to the A-zone beams means that players looking for the surprise attack around the corner have to risk playing on low ground, instead of looking for a higher advantage. Both the Rafters, and A’s boxes were shortened; while in part B, there are more spaces and the tower no longer has the small elevator for the box.
