Cypher's Trapwire's are excellent for avoiding flanks while attacking and making it difficult for enemies to plant the Spike.

How to use Cypher in Valorant?

Using Cypher properly in Valorant is about getting the most out of his gadgets. Remember, he's a Sentinel, not a Duellist. He doesn't go for kills; instead, he must be used to gather and deny information.

With this in mind, here are some tips to use Cypher in Valorant!

Use your trapwire to stop flanks

Trapwires are useful in defense as they stop and slow down attackers. However, while attacking, Cypher's trapwires are still a crucial piece of utility.

Place your trapwires to stop the enemies from flanking or rotating during a post-plant. If you do that, it will get harder for attackers to move freely around the map, especially when trying to flank you and your teammates.

Use your cybercage to create new angles of sight

Cybercages are slightly different from smokes as Cypher's gadget can create new angles of sight. You can do that by pairing them with Cypher's Trapwires: after triggering a Trapwire, the Cybercage will follow.

Additionally, you can use your Cybercages to get cover, which will make it difficult for the opponents to know your position.
