Valorant Wiki

Beneath a forgotten monastery, a clamour emerges from rival Agents clashing to control three sites. There’s more territory to control, but defenders can use the extra real estate for aggressive pushes.
— Official description

Haven is a map in VALORANT and one of the first available since the Closed Beta.


Haven's features include an additional third spike site. This does not affect the number of ultimate orbs on the map; Haven's two ultimate orbs are present in A Long and C Long (Dragon).

The doors at Mid also have destructible panels covering them. Whilst intact, they absorb damage and cannot be penetrated by gunfire. The panels however have 400 HP each and can be damaged, with colored indicators on them implying how much health they have left (starts blue, then turns yellow and then red as they take more damage). They can eventually be destroyed to allow players to wallbang through these doors for the rest of the round.

In Bhutan's capital city of Thimphu, a temple is subjected to the latest developments facing a modern Alpha Earth in the era of radianite. As parts of it crumble and burn due to a radianite-related event causing masses of large columns to erupt from the ground, the global reach of Kingdom Corporation has also arrived there, taking over the site to use it as storage for their radianite crates.
