Valorant’s Liquid ScreaM, otherwise known as “The Headshot Machine,” has shared his Aim Lab practice routine on YouTube. Owner of the highest head shot percentage at the VCT Masters 2 tournament in Iceland, Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom’s regimen obviously works well for him, while the aim trainer itself is the go-to program for those desiring to hone their FPS skills, with a player base ranging between 15 and 20 million.
The pro starts by stretching his wrists and arms, before jumping into Gridshot exercises, in which spheres pop up in various locations on the screen. He then—surprise, surprise—moves on to Headshot mode, in which these spheres appear at various X-axis positions defined by head level. Thirdly, he opts for Switchtrack practice, where the same orbs--placed at various distances and heights--move horizontally across the screen. This is followed by Wallpeek and the more specific variant, Wallpeek Valorant Challenges.
The pro says he does most of these exercises two or three times each. “Get the movements in. Get the techniques in, and then the speed comes second,” he says. “Just take your time. Aim for the head or aim for the body, and then shoot.”
Liquid ScreaM‘s Aim Lab reveal has certainly given viewers a glimpse into how he earned the title Headshot Machine. Additionally, his advice to those watching of “take your time” is surprisingly insightful given the pressure in FPS games to prioritize reaction time and reflexes, perhaps prematurely.
