S-Tier Agents (Valorant Agent Tier List)
S-tier agents are the creme of the crop. Boasting powerful abilities that can help you win games, they include Jett, Omen and Reyna as all-around agents, Reyna duelist and Skye versatile agent who provide intel and support to their teams; Killjoy can lock down areas against enemy pushes while Raze acts as a destructive duelist clearing out corners and pushing enemies back; with Killjoy being an all-round agent while Raze acts as a destructive duelist who can clear out corners while pushing enemies back with ease.
A-Tier Agents (Valorant Agent Tier List)
A-tier agents are also strong, though perhaps not as versatile or powerful. Sova is an initiator who can gather intelligence and open sites; Viper is a powerful controller with large areas under his control; Brimstone can support teams in many ways while Phoenix is an elite duelist who can self-heal and revive himself, making him difficult to kill; Astra creates stars all across the map while Breach flashes enemies with an electric flash, making them easy targets.
B-Tier Agents (Valorant Agent Tier List)
B-tier agents can still be formidable competitors at the highest levels. Chamber is an experienced sentinel capable of placing traps and gadgets to defend areas. Harbor is an experienced controller capable of creating walls and waves to control the map. Fade is an emerging initiator who can track enemies to reveal their locations while Neon is an agile duelist who can both slide and sprint quickly – giving her great mobility – Brimstone provides support from multiple angles within her team.
C-tier agents remain viable, though their strength may not match that of more established agents on this list. Sage is a healer able to revive teammates but her other abilities aren’t as potent. Brimstone provides support in various forms to the team but may not be as efficient in doing so as other controllers in the current meta. Gekko is a newly balanced initiator with potential; Reyna’s self-sufficient duelist abilities may not match those seen elsewhere while Cypher serves as a sentinel who gather intelligence or trap enemies, yet his abilities don’t match other sentinels’ abilities in current meta.
Note that this list is simply a general one; your ideal agent will depend on your playstyle and team composition. If unsure which agent suits your needs best, try out various agents until one stands out as your ideal selection.
