Valorant – #1 Best Viper Snake Bite Lineups for ALL Maps

92 / 100

Overview:

Viper Agent

Viper snake bite lineups can be used to stop enemies from defusing the spike from a long distance. She is a controller, which puts her in the same category as Omen and Brimstone, making it her job to block enemy vision and lockdown different areas around the map. Also similar to Sova’s shock darts, Viper has two snake bite charges, allowing her to stall for an even longer period of time.

Properly Using Viper Lineups:

Viper snake bite lineups are most similar to Brimstone’s molly lineups, as you must understand the proper timing to prevent an enemy from fully defusing the spike. Most of the lineups shown below will take 5+ seconds to land.

Each snake bite also lasts roughly 8 seconds, meaning you have the potential to stall the spike for up to 16 seconds by yourself if left alone. After practicing them a few times, you will begin to intuitively understand exactly when you need to shoot each snake bite.


Also understanding that enemy players can begin to get more aggressive once they realize that you have lineups is important.

Viper Snake Bite Lineups on Bind:

Viper Snake Bite for Default Plant on A-Site from A-Lobby:

Find the tree leaves with two holes and place the bottom left part of your HUD on the bottom of the right hole. Use the two images above for guidance.

Enemies defusing the spike will quickly take damage and will also be forced off of the spike. Keep in mind that most of these lineups will generally take 5+ seconds to land. This means your timing needs to be good enough so that enemies cannot stick the spike and defuse it.


Viper Snake Bite for Default Plant on B-Site from B-Fountain:

This Viper snake bite lineup is for the left side of the crate on B-Site, which is where most players generally plant the spike. To begin, walk into the corner as pinged above on B-Fountain.

After pulling out your snake bite, place the dot above the mouse HUD between the two structures as seen above. Once you’ve shot both of your Viper snake bites, you can either walk back up long or into B-Hookah to continue holding down the site.

Place your crosshair right between the top of the two buildings as seen in the red rectangle. This snake bite will also take roughly 5 seconds to land on the default plant position.

Remember that it’s also very important to communicate with your team where you want them to plant, as not everyone will always plant in this spot. Also, let teammates know when you are shooting a snake bite, as it will give them a chance to play a bit more passively.

Viper Snake Bite for Default Plant on B-Site from B-Lobby:

Keep in mind that shooting these lineups will give away your position, making you more vulnerable if you need to push into site to continue defending spike. Don’t forget to use Viper’s other abilities as well.

The entire front side of C-Site will be covered, completely forcing enemies off of the spike. Be careful from C-Long, as enemies who are forced off-site will likely be looking in your direction since they can’t defuse the spike anymore.

This lineup is relatively simple to learn and can be very effective at stopping the enemy defuser. The spot this snake bite is shot from also gives you a very nice high-ground advantage once you peak.

Simply place your crosshair in the middle of the window as seen above. The Viper snake bite will bounce once off of the window and land directly onto the default plant spot on A-Site.

Enemies forced to get out of this area will also likely not be too sure of where you are at first. Use this to your advantage and surprise them with a good and well-timed peak.

Viper Snake Bite for Default Plant on B-Site from B-Green (Jump and Shoot):

Viper Snake Bite for Default Plant on B-Site from B-Green (Jump and Shoot)

This lineup can be a little tricky at first but is very much worth it once you learn it. To begin, walk into the second cubby in B-Main that is closest to the attacker’s spawn.

Place your crosshair on the white line right above the black line that is below. This lineup also requires you to jump and shoot at the same time to work properly.

All of the default plant area will be covered on B-Site, making it perfect for you and your team to defend. This lineup is especially good since it’s best to defend a planted spike on B-Site from B-Main.

Conclusion:

Viper has some very powerful abilities that are currently under-utilized, as she is the least picked controller in Valorant. Learning lineups like these as well as for her other abilities can give you the ability to solo-carry an entire game. Remember that good communication, especially with lineups, is important to ensure the best possible outcome. Master these Viper snake bite lineups and continue your grind to radiant!
