The average combat score may seem to be the most significant after winning in all the items that add up to your VALORANT rating. Yet you shouldn’t drop much with a high AVG Combat Score and a tight loss, if at all, and a win with a high ACS would give you a lot closer to progression. But how does it work? And how significant will the Average Combat Score be?
Players usually consider that all they have to do is play well and have a high K/D/A Ratio. You may potentially be stuck in VALORANT gold like you’re trying to break your way out for Platinum or Eternal.
Your combat score is not just based on kills, even though the score is a major factor. We also look at damage caused, which means that aids are taken into account when you help destroy an opponent, as well as utility that does damage. There are several other variables that, such as first bloods and streaks, help to remind your fighting ranking. On the fighting score tool tip, these are called out. We are looking at ways to integrate non-damaging aids into your fighting score in the longer term, as well.
Average Combat Score is a total of all kills you made in match, First blood kills, kill assists, non damaging kill assists, multiple kills, damage dealt and kills based on enemy health and round scores.
- 1 Point for each damage dealt with guns or abilities
- Kills based on enemies with certain HP 150/130/110/90/70. Eg., the enemy killed with 125 HP will be 110 points
- More than 1 kill will count extra kills each multi-kill (multiple kills per round) earns a +50 score bonus with +50 points for each kill
- Non-damaging assists: Using non-damaging abilities like blind etc., gives you 25 points for each enemy.
- A number of rounds you won. Can be seen on the scoreboard.
- Plants and defuses are not counted against the average combat score.
