This new Cypher camera trick on Ascent is reminiscent of the infamous Breeze bug that banned teams. Except this one is legit.
Ascent’s large size calls for a perfectly sneaky and clever flanking spotter. Cypher is the perfect Sentinel to run on this map because he can gather intel without getting into the line of fire of enemies. This new line of exploit-like cameras shows just how viable it is in the scenic landscape of Ascent.
This spy camera provides an advantageous view of the entire Site A from a hidden location.
Cypher’s spy camera speeds up team rotation because he can keep tabs on two locations at once. This instantly boosts the team’s defense as they can plan their fortress accordingly.
However, its camera can blend into the background, but it’s still pretty easy to spot. Enemies often break the cam, snatching advantage from defenders. But, this new line of cameras will not be spotted for the majority of rounds.
This Cypher camera trick slides its device into the sneaky top corner of Ascent. The agent must jump above the generator for this configuration and move around the corner. Finding the exact spot can be a little tricky, but it’s worth it. Once the camera turns blue, mount it on the wall to get a bird’s eye view of Ascent Site A.
It’s not exactly a “broken” setup, as it requires Cypher to jump on the generator and find the perfect spot. This process alone can take a long time, putting Cypher in a vulnerable position. But it’s still viable enough for any players who swear by Cypher’s kit. From this angle, Cypher will have a view of A small garden, the entrance, the sky, and the entire factory site.
He can tag multiple players without revealing the location of the camera. Players entering the site would expose themselves to significant risk by shooting at it. So it’s a viable place that can be used throughout the game.
How to use Cypher’s camera in Valorant
Cypher’s spy camera should always be placed at oddly high or low angles. Besides gathering information, these oddly placed cameras can help bait the crosshairs of enemies, putting them in a vulnerable spot. It’s easier to take down enemies when they’re distracted by a sneaky Cypher Camera trick.
