Written by: Weeii

Nobody wants to be the one caught off guard when an enemy swoops in from a blind spot. Deadlock, the agent that is like chess moves—you've got to be two steps ahead to really secure the bag. Now, in the fast-paced, high-stakes world of Valorant, knowing the best deadlock setups can be the difference between a "GG, well played" and a frustrating walk back to the spawn point.


Whether you're trying to lock down a site like Fort Knox or setting up the perfect trap, it's all about positioning, gadgets, and a sprinkle of strategy. Each map has its quirks, with deadlock, you will bring something unique to the table. So, why settle for average when you can be the mastermind behind an impenetrable defense, right?


In this guide, we're going to dive into the best Deadlock setups on Haven that'll make your opponents think twice before they rush in. So, grab some popcorn, put your game face on, and let's get into it!



Deadlock Setups 


As a deadlock, you are the team’s hope on the defensive side. While the agent is still relatively new, there are endless things you can do to place a lot of impact on any opponent coming your way. With the perfect setups and correct timings, you can be the change in the outcome of the game. Here are the best deadlock setups: 

A Site



What Does It Cover: This setup on A site will instantly piss off any enemy trying to cross it. It’s your easy way to tilt enemies and win your games as this will cover both long and short and look to “Deadlock” A site. 


When To Use It: Best used when you are trying to play for holding down site and preventing enemies from even getting the plant.

Why Is It Special: This setup will block both chokepoints and help you get easier frags which is undeniably a good option to go by. 

To do it, place your wall on Short and a sound sensor right on the edge of the default box. Follow it up with another in front of A long and there you have it, dominance. 



B Site

What Does It Cover: This setup on B site will definitely prevent enemies from passing as it is heavily focused on the control of B site which will work quite well in a narrow space as in B.


When To Use It: Best used in eco rounds or when you think enemies are going to hard push B. In this setup, you will be aimed to cover for A link control so don’t give up any space and fight for it.

Why Is It Special: It is a very versatile setup to play as it allows you to play from various different locations and secure the round at ease. 

This is how you do it: Place your wall on B main followed up by a sound sensor next to it with another towards A link as this is often a heavily executed area by attackers. Then, enjoy! 

C Site - Garage



What Does It Cover: This setup on Garage will definitely lock down this area and enemies won’t even dare to contest it. As this will completely cover the narrow area in Garage.


When To Use It: Best used in scenarios where you are playing C for retake whether that’s because enemies have ultimates or because you have a set plan in mind to do in Garage.

Why Is It Special: What sets it apart is how easy it is to frag anyone off it as with these crowded utility on Garage nobody can really cross it without going unpunished. 

To do it, simply place your wall on double doors and a sound sensor on the wall next to it. Then, play off your nade on the utility’s activation to secure free kills. 

C Site


What Does It Cover: But what if you want to cover C site instead? Well, here’s how to do it. This setup will definitely focus on blocking anyone from crossing C long to site. 


When To Use It: Best used when you are playing as a site anchor and feel the need to hold down a site so your teammates can get map control elsewhere.

Why Is It Special: This setup is especially useful because it allows you to anchor site effectively. 

To do it, place your wall on C long followed up with a sound sensor on the right side. Then add another one on platform and ensure you don’t let anyone go punished. 

Pro Tips


  • Remember that using your wall ability, each section can be broken separately and it can be done in less time than breaking it all at once. This means enemies can break one section quickly to pass through, being aware of this helps you predict upcoming danger.

  • The audio sensor activates whenever a player produces an audio cue, this means if you place it for flank and enemies shift or slowly walk through it they will be completely undetected. Deadlock is weak when it comes to setting traps for flank as it can get dodged.

  • GravNet (C) which is the ability that allows you to force crouch enemies can be canceled in some circumstances like an Omen teleporting or such. Don’t expect enemies to stay crouched after casting a certain ability.

  • Enemies can easily dodge the sound sensors when they know where it is placed on site, meaning you should always re-arrange your setups and add your touch to the given setups in order to maximize the agent’s efficiency.

  • Deadlock’s ultimate can bounce off walls to get to a desired position, so in case you had an enemy running away from you make sure to try and hunt them down with an ultimate trick shot!

  • A common use for Deadlock’s ultimate is to enable it and not shoot it until you see the enemy. Usually with the range of the ability you can secure the kill even after being vulnerable for a few seconds after launching it.

  • To properly secure holding sites, make sure you are buying the correct loadout for the purpose you are aiming for in a certain round. If you are going for kills, then place your sound sensors in cheeky spots and peek off them.

  • The sound sensor can be tricked just like the killjoy turret and chamber trip, if you hear it alerted that doesn’t mean it launched or caught an enemy as they can simply retreat and hold your peek.
