Split is a pretty decent map for Sage and her walls. She is generally played in B-Heaven, but can also be played pretty much anywhere with the right team setup. Many of the aggressive walls shown below, especially the ones for defense, will allow you to catch your opponents off-guard and pick up some free rounds. Above all you should remember to also use your other abilities as well as use communication for optimal chances of winning.
Wall for Bottom Mid/Sewers from Mid-Mail:
This Sage wall can be placed from the corner inside of Mail as the round is starting. If enemies are in Sewers or Market, they will likely hear this wall be placed. However, many enemies will not expect you to be on top of the wall. Place your wall outline similar to that as seen above.
The angle you hold from is quite small, making it a little harder to hit shots, but makes you much harder to hit as well. It’s worth noting that there will be a gap that through which enemies can still push.
Wall for B-Site and CT-Spawn from B-Heaven:
This Sage wall can be a little tricky to correctly place at first, but once you understand the lineup it becomes easy. Make sure you place the majority of the wall on the outside of B-Heaven. Use the image above for guidance.
As seen above, this is quite an incredible position/angle to play from. Enemies that catch a glimpse of the wall will likely not expect you to be on top of the wall. Also, keep in mind that enemies will expect this once you do it multiple times in a row.
Wall #1 for A-Main/A-Site from A-Rafters:
This Sage wall is placed from the corner of A-Rafters that is right above hell. You can either place this wall like normal, or you can jump back and place it for extra vision into A-Main. Doing it the second way is harder, but ultimately is the best version to learn.
Don’t be discouraged by the second version of this wall, as is quite difficult to learn at first. The view into A-Main is very nice, allowing for you to have the first shot almost always. It’s also worth noting that you can jump onto the boost spot that is on the other side of the wall from where you are boosted.
Wall for A-Main from A-Ramp:
This Sage wall is optimally placed when jump-placed as positioned in the image above. However, you can also place it without jumping for a good, but part-broken wall.
When you place this wall after jumping back, you will also block the entirety of A-Ramp off. Since A-Ramp is sloped, you can actually shoot under the wall to kill enemies in A-Main.
Wall #2 for A-Main/A-Site from A-Rafters:
This is a variation of the first wall that was also placed from A-Rafters. This Sage wall gives you a slightly different position to play from that will allow you to continue to surprise your enemies.
You have the potential to watch either A-Main or A-Site from this position, meaning you can use it before the enemies push or after the enemies have site control.
Wall for B-Main Boost from B-Site:
This is a somewhat common Sage wall if you play toward B-Site. What most enemies don’t check is the boost spot that is in the corner. Make sure to boost yourself when you place the wall.
This spot gives you a unique angle on B-Heaven as well as enemies that break the wall from B-Main. Be careful because people will likely check this spot more than the other Sage walls so far.
Wall for A-Heaven from A-Ramp:
This Sage wall that can be placed when you team wants to push from A-Main into A-Site without taking A-Heaven. Placing this wall means enemies from ropes or A-Heaven must go out from heaven or screens unless they break the wall.
You can play on top of the wall and wait for enemies to break it, but you don’t have to. It’s also good to wall it and fall back to play another spot where your team might need you.
Wall for A-Screens from A-Site:
This is another Sage wall for A-Site if your team chooses to also take control of A-Heaven. Even if your team doesn’t have control of heaven, you can wall this spot to help your team get the spike down.
Wall for Mid-Mail and Mid-Vents:
This Sage wall is good for fighting enemies that like to play aggressively in the middle part of Split. Make sure to place this wall as your teammates from Market also push out to optimize the chance of killing enemies.
If an enemy with an Operator is playing inside of Vents, they will not likely not be able to kill you unless they hit an incredible shot. This means you generally have the surprise factor on anyone playing inside of Vents and also inside of Mail.
Wall for Mid-Vents from Mid:
This Sage wall is a somewhat common one that can be used when your team wants to quickly push into B-Heaven. Placing this wall will prevent enemies playing in Vents to flank you without you knowing first.
Keep in mind that the wall will eventually break, meaning enemies could be behind it preparing to flank.
Wall for Crossing to B-Site from B-Main:
This is a very good Sage wall when combined with other abilities like smokes and flashes. The purpose of this wall is to prevent taking damage from A-Heaven/Hell when crossing to site. Make sure to let your team know before you place it.
It’s important to realize that you need to be close to the wall when walking out, or enemies from heaven will still be able to see your head. Also be careful for enemy abilities when walking out.
Wall for CT-Spawn from B-Site:
This is also a relatively common Sage wall that is very useful for locking down B-Site. After walling this, it also allows multiple members of your team to watch B-Heaven.
Keep in mind that enemies will eventually break this wall before the round ends. This means you can play in a spot close to the wall and kill them before they can react.
Split is a very good map for Sage walls, as you have the chance to win many extra rounds with her utility. Combining her utility with some of the more aggressive walls that were showcased above can turn you into the duelist version of Sage! As always, remember to have good communication about where you plan on placing your wall. Continue practicing Sage and begin to master all ranks of Valorant!
