Valorant Outlaw vs Marshal vs Operator: Damage, Fire Rate & Price Compared
Valorant was released in June 2020 and no new weapon was added to the arsenal until the release of the Outlaw sniper in Episode 8. This weapon is somewhere in between a Marshal and an Operator, with unique mechanics. Naturally, Valorant players are keen on comparing the three available snipers to see which one works in what situation. In this article, we will take a closer look at the damage, fire rate, cost and other details about all three snipers.
Here is Valorant Outlaw vs Marshal vs Operator compared.
What Is Valorant's Latest Weapon, Outlaw?
The Outlaw in Valorant is a true disruptor with its swift double-shot capability. It's not just a rifle; it's a drastic shift in weapon dynamics of the game. Probably the biggest advantage of this weapon is its ability to fire bullets continuously without having to zoom out—a problem with both the Marshal and the Operator.
It also bridges a significant gap between Marshall and Operator, adding a sense of balance to the hero shooter. Valorant writes, "We hope the Outlaw will fill a gap between the Marshal and Operator in terms of power and price. The Outlaw also has a blend of elements from each of the other snipers, while of course introducing a few new elements of its own."
The vision behind adding this sniper rifle, as Valorant mentions, is to "bring more options for those of you who like, well, sniping. And a new sniper also adds more strategic depth to Valorant overall."
