Wondering what CT means in Valorant? You may have come across your teammates screaming or sending ‘CT’ or ‘T’ on the chat when you’re looking for an enemy’s position. If you are a beginner in Valorant, such acronyms could confuse you more. After all, mugging up those abilities as a beginner is already a difficult task. Don’t worry; we are here to clear you up on what the acronym ‘CT’ means in Valorant.
If you aren’t familiar with Valorant yet or plan to download the game soon, let us introduce you to the game a bit. Being an FPS, Valorant is extremely competitive and is multiplayer only. You’ll be on either side of two teams, each having five players. The teams are assigned one of the two roles – Attackers or Defenders – in each round. The ‘Attackers’ are supposed to plant a spike and make sure it detonates, while the ‘Defenders’ are tasked with the role of defusing the planted spike. Each game hosts a minimum of thirteen rounds – the first team to reach thirteen rounds wins.
You, as a player, can pick one agent from the list of eighteen before the beginning of a game. Each agent has four abilities – two buyable, one free, and one ultimate. Along with character-specific abilities, you get to pick a gun loadout at the beginning of each round during the ‘Buy Phase’. That’s Valorant in a nutshell! But the game is far more complicated than just a description.
What does CT mean in Valorant?
You may find it easier to understand ‘CT’ if you have played Counter-Strike: GO before. From the description of Valorant’s gameplay, you may have noticed that the gameplay is similar to that of CS:GO. Not only the gameplay but some in-game weapons are also similar. There are a few differences, of course. In CS: GO, the attacker team is referred to as ‘Terrorists,’ and the defenders are referred to as ‘Counter-Terrorists’. There are no abilities in CS: GO. The spike in Valorant is analogous to the bomb in CS: GO.
So, players who migrated to Valorant from CS: GO or play both games like to refer to Attackers as ‘T’ (Terrorists in CS: GO) and Defenders as ‘CT’ (Counter-Terrorists in CS: GO). Players usually use ‘CT’ to refer to Defender Spawn Points on the map. Say, your team has managed to eliminate four players of the Defender Team, and you are looking for the last enemy. And the last enemy is camping at the Defender Spawn Point or is AFK. Your teammates may use the acronym ‘CT’ to tell you that the last enemy is at the Defender Spawn Point.
