VALORANT: Cypher Camera Spots on Lotus

Sentinels are a must-have on Lotus due to the map’s three bombsite layout. Agents such as Killjoy, Sage, and Cypher are the only Agents capable of holding down bombsites alone, making them indispensable picks for maps like Lotus.

Despite his low pick rate in VALORANT, Cypher is viable on Lotus. His nifty Spycam allows him to check multiple entryways and areas leading to bomb sites around the map. With multiple rotation options on the map, you’ll need an Agent like Cypher who can do flank-watch duties when Attacking and site defense work on Defense.

We have compiled some quick and easy Cypher Spycam spots on Lotus in this guide.

Lotus Spycams for Defending

Cypher is within his element when Defending Lotus. His upgraded Trapwires allow him to set up more intricate traps and easily hold down wider entryways, but you will need some help from Spycam to take advantage of these traps.

Additionally, it is important to have more than one Spycam placement on any map in VALORANT to keep your enemies guessing. You would not want to give the enemy team an easy and predictable target, do you?

Play with an Odin or any high-penetration weapon when using this Spycam. The Spycam will give you information on Attackers entering A-Tree, which you can use from A-Top with an Odin.

Lotus Spycam for Attacking

Generally, Spycam is reserved for post-plant situations and flank-watch when playing Cypher on the Attacking side.

Coupled with Trapwire and Cybercage, Cypher can give his team the confidence to take the bombsite without fear of getting flanked from behind – a very easy thing to do on Lotus due to the Rotating Walls on A-site and C-site.

You can use Spycam to check corners quickly, but the long activation time means the enemy team will likely shoot down the Spycam before you can get any information.

A-site Rubble Spycam

Attacking Spycam that reveals players holding the A-Entrance angle. Can be left alone for flank-watch duties.

Spying on the Enemy

Spycam can get you a few easy kills on Defense and make site entry a scary proposition for the Attacking team.

On the Attacking side, Cypher’s Spycam can help ensure you keep the enemy team in front of your own by deterring any flank attempts by the enemy team.
