Valorant Wiki

Some kind of happiness is measured out in taking down enemies with the Bulldog.

The Bulldog is a Rifle that is a primary weapon in VALORANT.


A surefire beast when you can pick your shots. Alt. fire let’s you ADS and spew accurate, short bursts at anyone who tries you from medium to long-range.

The Bulldog is a moderately-priced rifle. It has two firing modes, a standard automatic single-bullet primary fire and a semi-automatic burst-mode alternate fire that fires three bullets in an accurate burst at around a fifth of its usual fire rate.

The Bulldog can be a good option when you're not saving but the rest of your team has stronger buys for the round whilst you don't have the creds to buy a more expensive rifle. However, all the other rifles are upgrades over the Bulldog when they can be purchased; players looking to tap heads with the Bulldog's burst fire can use the Guardian instead, with higher accuracy, damage, and penetration, whilst general short-mid range combat is better suited for the Phantom and Vandal with their higher rates of fire.
