|Capacity||Wall Penetration||Fire Type|
|Fire Rds/Sec||Alt. Fire Type||Alt. Rds/Sec|
|9.25||Zoom Mode (1.25x) (slightly reduces spread)||8.32|
|Head Damage||Body Damage||Leg Damage|
|-156 (0-50m)||-39 (0-50m)||-33 (0-50m)|
The Vandal, along with the Phantom, are both full-automatic Valorant Rifles that cost 2900 CREDS.
While the Phantom has damage drop-offs beyond certain distances, the Vandal does 156 damage to the head, 39 to the body, and 33 to the legs at ALL distances.
This means you can one-shot headshot enemies, even if they have full health and Heavy Shields, from anywhere on the map.
The trade-offs for this is the Vandal has slightly more bullet spread, a slightly slower rate of fire, and holds 5 fewer bullets in its magazine.
When hip-firing, the Vandal can shoot 9.25 rounds per second. The rate of fire decreases a bit when aiming down the gun's sights (1.25x zoom) to 8.32 rounds per second.
However, we'd often choose a cheaper gun with Heavy Shields and certain abilities over the best guns when you have limited Creds.
While high-level streamers and pro Valorant players are split between the Phantom and Vandal, we personally favor the Vandal for its higher damage at long distances.
