A disaster at a local kingdom facility threatens to engulf the whole neighborhood. Stop at your favorite food truck then fight across the city in this traditional three lane map.
— Official description

Sunset is the tenth map to be released in VALORANT.

Features[]

Sunset is one of VALORANT's more traditional maps with two sites and three lanes. Its one additional feature is a mechanical door found between B Market and Mid Courtyard. Players can use a switch on the Market side of the door to close or open it. This door is impenetrable while closed but has 500 HP, allowing players to damage and eventually destroy it. Once destroyed, the doorway remains permanently open for the rest of the round.

Lore[]

   Kingdom bleeds our planet once again. Too many scars to count.
Reyna icon Reyna, Match Start

In the Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights, residents were already noticing strange things occurring around a secretive Kingdom facility located in the area, with peculiar creatures spotted running around and unusually large sounds coming from nearby. Now, a huge sinkhole that has suddenly opened up in front of the facility has put the whole neighborhood at risk, as Kingdom desperately attempts to prevent any details about the sinkhole's cause from being revealed and stop the facility's classified work from being exposed.
