Brimstone Essential Post-plant Lineups on Ascent

These Brimstone lineups will hugely benefit your ranked games on Ascent

Brimstone garnered widespread popularity among Valorant's community because of its ability to add significant value to the squad while demanding a low-skill floor to be effective. Each of his skills significantly impacts a team's success, such as smoke bombs, which cover for angles while assaulting and interfere with opponent surge when defending. The steam beacon is handy in any firefight scenario. Finally, the incendiary is a flexible ability that can be used in various situations. One of these scenarios is related to the round's post-plant stage. During these critical times, a few strong Incendiary lineups will prevent the defenders from defusing the spike, thus tipping the odds in your favour. This article looks at the finest Brimstone lineups players can utilise to start winning on Ascent.

A Site Post-plant Lineups

The A site on Ascent is a crucial site for attackers because, with some good use of utility, this one can be taken with relative ease. However, knowing how to play against retaking defenders is a subject you must pay attention to. These post-plant lineups will surely enrich your arsenal as a Brimstone player against a coordinated retake attempt. 

A Default from Long

Close to the generator, the A Default spot gives us the most protection when planting the spike. This A Default lineup will come in handy when you’re positioned in the Long area after the spike plant.

A Default from Short

It is well-known that if you play the same post-plant lineup every round, you are bound to get pushed by the defenders. Therefore, to keep your ratty tactics viable, you must become unpredictable. Learning to do the same lineup from multiple spots will reward you greatly.

B Site Post-plant Lineups

B site is a tricky map to get into, but once you get the spike planted, you must protect it at all costs. Brimstone is an amazing agent at this job since his Incendiary can be utilised to stall a defuse from a long distance. Let’s dive into a few super useful Brimstone post-plant lineups for B site Ascent.

B Default from Main

Once you successfully take control of B, default is the only plan position that is the most incentivising. This one covers all the angles that you might get attacked from while planting the spike. However, since this spot is so well protected, it can also be difficult to defend from retaking defenders. Therefore, an efficient Brimstone lineup is the advantage to turn the tides in your favour.

Step 3: The utility will bounce off of the opposite wall on the site and will land extremely fast, making it a highly efficient lineup for B Default.

B Dices from Main

The B Dices location needs no introduction. This one is the best plant location since this leaves the defenders with the least advantage for defusing. Firstly, it is very effective for the attackers to wall-bang this spot. Secondly, this spot leaves the defenders with only a few wall covers. Therefore, to put the icing on the cake, learn this Brimstone lineup and use it on your ranked games to leave the defenders with no room for success.

Step 3: Stand still and launch the Incendiary. This is another highly efficient lineup, as the utility will land really fast.

B Corner from Logs

The Logs area is a sneaky spot to play defensively. If the enemy leaves this position unchecked, it can be absolutely detrimental to their strategy. The B Corner is a favourite plant spot when the attacker prefers to play from B Logs in a post-plant situation. With this Brimstone Incendiary lineup, the defenders will have great difficulty stealing the round from you.
