    I Dream of making waves

    I’m chaotic but I rule this war

    Nothing left to lose

    See me coming through

    But I know that you’re the same

    Undefeated is my fractured heart

    Nothing left to lose

    Yeah we keep on making waves

What is the meaning behind the animated music video of Making Maves?

In the animated music video that accompanies the song, a character personifying the Valorant agent Yoru is the protagonist, who is walking through a city street and suddenly observes an explosion of some kind coming from a tower at a distance.

This can be equated to a spike plant within the game, as he starts to run towards the tower right after the explosion, but he comes across someone who looks similar to Omen armed with an Operator trying to stop him.

As in the game, Yoru uses his Fakeout ability to distract Omen, while creeping up on him with a Sheriff and takes him down. Immediately after he comes across another Yoru equipped with an Odin, as same agents can be picked by both teams in Valorant.

The main Yoru runs but is unable to evade and is about to get hit with a bullet when suddenly he is saved by Harbor's defensive ability Cove, the person depicting the agent making a brief appearance in the video.

In the reflection of the water that Cove is made up of, Yoru sees four other people which could be a way of showing that he is not alone in it and those are simply his teammates ready to help him out.

Gatecrash ability is used by main Yoru to take down his duplicate and he proceed to rush towards the tower, where he once again faces himself but this time his whole team appears beside him to help him out.

The moral basically is that no player is alone in this challenge, their team ever present to help them out. If you face your challenges alone, it will result in a defeat but if the entire team comes together then the challenge becomes easier.

Making Waves is the title track for the upcoming Valorant Champions Tour 2023 Pacific League which will feature a total prize pool of $250,000 USD and 10 partnered teams from the Asia-Pacific region. It is scheduled to take place from 25th March to 28th May in Seoul, South Korea.
