This guide shows three different examples of how Brimstone is able to use his Incendiary ability to great effect on the Valorant map, Haven. The first of these will be using this ability to clear out a position as you breach A-site. The second lineup shows you how you can utilize this ability to clear out a common position in a retake scenario. Lastly, the third Incendiary lineup demonstrates how you can win a post-plant situation from a safe distance.

Brimstone’s Incendiary ability is an area of effect, damage over time ability, that lasts for approximately 8 seconds. Unlike Phoenix’s ‘Hot Hands’ ability, Brimstone is able to bounce his incendiary off of walls and objects, allowing it to be used in creative ways.

A-Site: This lineup allows you to clear out any enemy players who are behind the A-Site box. This lineup is also easy to implement, as you will often find yourself in this position when setting up smokes onto the A-Site.

Back-B: This incendiary can be used for retaking the B-Site or on the attacking side. The lineup is incredibly simple and effective at clearing out the back of the B-Site. It is common for enemies to hide there and hold angles.

C-Default: If the spike has been planted at the default box on C, this incendiary can be used to delay the enemy team from defusing. This can be done from a safe position, while still being able to hear the defuse. This incendiary can them be followed up with your ultimate, if available. Timing is key here, and pairing the Incendiary with the ultimate can guarantee you and your team the round.
