A Valorant gaming PC is a dream come true for fans of Riot’s iconic FPS game, and one fan has adapted its lighting setup to reflect what’s happening in-game. Not only have they impressed the fandom in general, but they also have the thumbs up from the developers.
Valorant has quickly become one of the most popular FPS games on the market since its release over two years ago. Riot Games’ first release title outside of League of Legends has grown a massive community of tactical shooter fans who have come to love both the sprawling maps and dynamic operators that Riot has released since initial release.
To celebrate their appreciation of the game, one Valorant player took their fandom for the game to the next level and fully incorporated the game into their PC setup. reddit user ChachiJuarez A Valorant subreddit posted a video of a program they’ve been working on that syncs up the shooter’s gameplay with all of your PC settings.
In the title of the post, they said: “I am working on a program that fully integrates Valorant with my lighting, keyboard, and mouse. This is what the spike that is being planted looks like.” In the video, as the spike is being planted, their LED lights flash red along with their mouse and keyboard, creating an incredible yet slightly terrifying effect of urgency that surely plunges them into the middle of the game.

The difficulty of getting their entire setup to work together surprised viewers, and Juarez explained exactly how they did it: “I thought it would be fun to try and make a program that was as non-invasive to the game as possible. All it does is essentially take a ‘screenshot’ every 50ms, and then watch certain pixels in the UI for color changes to detect in-game events.”
The light show was so impressive that even one Valorant developer was floored. Premium Content Team Developer Heyyousam praised his work in the comments section, “This is unbelievably awesome! Talk about being immersed in Valorant! I’m a nervous player and this would probably make me sweat more than I already do and miss shots. However, this is amazing!”
While the program Juarez created to turn on the lights was impressive, it might also be too intense for all the players to handle. If you’re looking to dive into Valorant, here’s everything you need to know about it. Episode 5 Act 2as well as the best Valorant sights and codes.
