Valorant's super competitive nature makes it a rather hard game for many gamer veterans but also produces young prodigies, such as the 10-year-old girl who annihilated the opposing team on her own.

Valorant is one of the most competitive shooters on the market, requiring as much focus and convictions as possible and causing distress when a plan fails or you narrowly lose a shootout. It has sent many gamers into a fit of rage or even made them quit while some of the best tend to be players who keep calm under pressure and have cat-like reflexes.

As with any other esport, the most successful players are usually in their late teens or early 20s but every now and then, a surprise happens. In this case, the surprise came in the form of a 10-year-old girl who scored an ace against the opposing team through superior decision making and great understanding of Valorant's mechanics.

If you are not familiar with the CS-like shooting model in video games, the gist is that your gun will shoot where the crosshair is only initially and if you keep spraying, the bullets will fly above in a somewhat random fashion. The girl who aced the opposing team showcased her understanding of shooting mechanics as she clearly stopped firing for the recoil to reset during a shootout.

On top of that, her tactical decision making provided enough information to know where the opponents would come from, giving her a great opportunity to ambush them from a position they didn't expect. 

If those two aspects of a successful gamer in the making weren't enough for you, she showed great mechanics when she flick-killed Reyna and kept enough composure not to mess up after getting hyped following the fourth kill.

You can see the entire play on the video above or check out the Reddit thread started by her proud father.
