VALORANT esports is on the rise in the 2022 season. New players are entering the scene and witnessing history and pros from all over the world are hitting clips and clutch plays in almost every online match. Riot Games announced the VALORANT Champions Tour 2022 in December and its premier event, VALORANT Champions, will take place in September.

With so many matches to watch and pros to keep an eye on, players are looking to find out what kind of settings their favorite players use. One player who has been making waves in A-tier tournaments is Saif “Sayf” Jibraeel. Sayf is a Challengers player who, over the past three months, boasts an impressive 1.21 K/D ratio within these competitive challenger matches. He’s currently the Jett main of Guild Esports and was formerly with teams like Ninjas in Pajamas, Bonk, and Dreamchasers in 2020.
