5. Spam Spike Rush and Throw

The game modes of Valorant vary in duration as well as XP gain after every game. If you’re looking to play just one game mode to maximize your XP gain, I recommend spamming and throwing in Spike Rush as it gives the most XP per hour! Check out the video for the math behind it. Or not, if you already trust me!

How it works:

  • A normal Spike Rush game takes 8 minutes
  • You get 1000 XP per Spike Rush game
  • This is 7500 XP in 1 hour
  • If you throw your Spike Rush game, it shortens to just 3 minutes
  • You go from 7500 XP per hour to 20000 XP per hour
  • Other game modes don’t even reach 10000 XP per hour!


4. Spam Swiftplay

Spamming Spike Rush might give you the best XP farming speed, but throwing games does not feel good all the time. It can ruin other people’s experience after all. Instead, spam swiftplay and play as you normally would! You would get around 7000 to 9000 XP per hour depending on your impact in your games. You can try hard in this mode and not get burnt out easily since swiftplay is way shorter in duration than the standard unrated/competitive!

How it works:

  • A normal Swiftplay game takes 15 minutes
  • You get around 1750 to 2250 XP per game
  • This is around 7000 to 9000 XP per hour
  • Unrated/Competitive gives a maximum of 7800 XP per hour (provided no one surrendered early)


3. Spam Spike Rush and WIN

Let’s get back to Spike Rush! While throwing games gives you XP, it does not help with your account level (AP). You get more AP from your first win of the day, game duration, and your game wins. If your account level is below 20 and you want to unlock competitive mode ASAP, winning as much Spike Rushes as you can will help you get there fast!

How it works:

  • Spike Rush only takes 4-6 rounds
  • You get 50 AP per win
  • Your first win of the day contributes 1000 AP as well


2. Spam Deathmatch and AFK


We’ve discussed throwing games, but how about a more effortless way to earn XP? This time, we’re talking about going AFK. No grind, no sweats, just a little mouse jiggle from time to time. Just try to move your character around every 5-10 seconds in deathmatch! This takes less guilt than throwing in other game modes since there are no teammates being affected in this XP farming strategy.

How it works:

  • Move your character every 5-10 seconds
  • You are less likely to be reported for being AFK in a deathmatch
  • You don’t negatively impact your teammates since this is a free-for-all mode


1. Spam Chamber’s signature skill

This one’s special, because you need to have the “Use abilities” mission in your daily or weekly missions. Instead of grinding a few 30-45 minute games to accomplish this, you can do itin one game by simply playing Chamber and spamming his signature skill (E) while in the buy phase!

How it works:

  • Missions give a lot of XP
  • Accomplish “use abilities” mission in just one game by playing Chamber
  • In the buy phase, spam his teleport skill 


And that’s it! Those are 5 ways to earn XP or AP fast in Valorant. Got other methods of XP and AP farming? Let me know in the comments down below.
