How Econ Rating Works in Valorant

by Nicholas Barth

Valorant is the new tactical first-person shooter from Riot Games and has quickly captivated the attention of the competitive multiplayer community. There are various ways that players can measure how they performed in a match. One of these ways is the Econ Rating, which provides players a glimpse at how they managed their spending during a particular game. Fortunately, we have everything you need to know about the Econ Rating in Valorant covered for you.

Now, players can find their econ rating for one of their past matches by going to the career option on the main menu. You can then click on the game you like would to see your Econ Rating to see what it was for that specific match. This performance measurement will then be found at the bottom of the summary scene for the game. 

The official description for the Valorant Econ Rating is “calculated as damage dealt per 1,000 creds spent. Higher values signify higher efficiency. Good economic play is important, but spend to win!”

Players who have a high one means that they were able to dish out a high amount of damage for every 1,000 creds they spend in a match. A lower number for this performance measurement means that a player was not able to dish out a high amount of damage for every 1,000 creds they spent. This can be an essential measurement for players, as it shows how active a player is with the money they spend every round. A player who can supply a large amount of damage to their enemies without spending a large number of creds means they do not need all of the expensive items and weapons to be effective. In contrast, a very low Valorant Econ Rating implies that a player spent a lot of creds but was not able to use the things they bought to inflict damage and help their teams.

However, a high or low Econ Rating is not the only thing that matters when it comes to evaluating a player’s performance, considering they are multiple factors that come into play during a Valorant match. A player could have a very high Econ Rating but played too safely and did not help their team win fights, which lead to them losing. A player could have a very lower Econ Rating but played the role of entry fragger very well and was able to help their team win even when they were not technically managing their economy well.
