If you’re wondering why each character ended up where they did, keep reading for more details on each agent.
Level S: bedroom
Valorant’s roster is equipped with several powerful abilities, but just like the real world, sometimes the best power of all is simply being rich. Chamber not only has great mobility due to his teleports, but he also has access to the best sniper in the game with his ultimate ability and also has a reinforced sheriff in his kit. As long as you can actually land your shots, Chamber is one of the strongest Agents in the game without too many weaknesses.
Even after his nerf to the dash, Jett is still one of the best characters in the game. Most people already recognize Jett as one of the best agents in Valorant, and it’s easy to see why. His kit grants him insane mobility, leading to countless Reddit clips and highlight reels. When you add her cigarettes on top of that, there’s not much she can’t do.
Level S: Viper
Even though its usefulness varies depending on the current map, Viper is a very powerful choice. His wall can easily get a team to an objective site and his ultimate ability essentially grants a free turn win as long as your team knows what they’re doing. Plus, it’s a must-have on maps like Icebox and Breeze where normal smoke isn’t enough to cover all sightlines.
Level A: Sova
Sova is arguably the best initiator in the game due to his intel-gathering tools, but nerfs to his drone ability moved him to the A-tier position. However, the Recon Dart and Shock Dart Sova’s are some of the most useful abilities in the game, and his ultimate also remains one of the best in the game.
Level A: Fade
The fade is Valorant’s new agent, and she has already proven herself as a capable starter that rivals Sova in efficiency. Her kit can put immense pressure on the enemy team, especially when paired with a Duelist who knows what they’re doing. However, Fade’s presence in most matches can be attributed to the fact that she’s still a new character, so she might drop to a lower position on the roster later down the line.
Level A: Sage
Sage needs no introduction. She’s easily the best support in the game due to her healing power and ultimate resurrection, and her slow orb and wall are fantastic for countering pushes and securing sites. She doesn’t have much to offer outside of that, so other agents with intel-gathering abilities may be a better fit for some teams.
Level A: KAY/O
KAY/O has been a popular choice since its first introduction, and it’s easy to see why. His kit is incredibly powerful, gathering information for the team and also helping them protect themselves. His ultimate ability is also among the best in the game, providing a ton of information to the team.
Level A: Skye
Skye is one of the best Initiators in the game because of her oppressive kit. Much like Fade, she is capable of putting a ton of pressure on the enemy team. Not only can she gather a ton of intel for her team, but she can also get her team to objective sites and clear choke points with her blinds and other abilities.
Level A: Killjoy
Killjoy is a large sentry with a particularly powerful ultimate, earning him a spot at Tier A. His other abilities like his alarm bot are excellent for covering flanks and gathering intel for the team, and while her Swarm Grenade isn’t as useful as other Agents’ abilities, it’s perfect for preventing a push or covering the spike.
Level A: Yoru
Yoru is one of the most popular Duelists in the game, but he’s very difficult to use to his full potential. He has a great kit, but it takes a long time to figure out how to use his abilities in tandem with each other to get the most out of them. Some other rosters may have Yoru in a lower position, but he’s great in the right hands.
Level B: Neon
Neon is very well equipped to push objective sites and overall aggressive play, but she doesn’t have as much utility as some of the other Duelists on Valorant’s roster. His mobility can help him win shootouts, but not everyone can fully utilize his movement abilities. She’s also vulnerable to enemy traps and doesn’t have many tools to help her disengage in sticky situations.
Level B: Omen
Another hugely popular pick, Omen is a mid-agent who can fit into just about any team lineup. His smokes and blinds are some of the best in the game, and Omen can be an absolute beast in the right hands. He doesn’t particularly excel at anything, but he doesn’t have many weaknesses either.
Level B: Shave
Raze’s usefulness can vary wildly depending on which player selects it. She’s an excellent Duelist who has surprising mobility if you know how to use her Satchel Charges properly, and her ultimate ability can help her land a few extra kills on enemies camping in the corners. Also, while his boombot isn’t the best information-gathering tool, it’s still useful to flush out any enemies lurking around the corners.
Level B: Sulfur
Brimstone can bring a ton of utility to a team with its stim beacon and other abilities, but it just doesn’t have the same level of power as other controllers like Viper and Omen, which are higher on this list for this reason. Still, Brimstone is a popular choice for a reason, and its kit is easy to use.
Level B: Violation
Of all the Initiators in the game, Breach is by far the weakest. That’s not to say he’s a bad agent, as his kit still has plenty of use. A good Breach can be very nerve-wracking to face, and it can help him fulfill his role as an initiator much more easily.
Level B: Reyna
Reyna is one of the most popular agents in the entire game, and that’s mainly because her kit offers a ton of value. However, Reyna’s kit is selfish and doesn’t offer much use to the team, earning her a lower spot on this list. Most top aspiring fraggers will lock Reyna in hopes of increasing their K/D ratio with her kit, but most lower ranks won’t.
Cypher isn’t a bad agent, but it takes a lot of knowledge to play him effectively, earning him a C-tier spot on this list. He also relies heavily on his ability to communicate with his team, and in solo queue that might not be an option. However, he can still control large parts of a map with his kit, and he can be super annoying in the right hands.
Level C: Astra
Astra’s kit is decent, but she earns a lower spot on this list because other Agents can do what she does but better. She is, however, very good on certain maps, and her ability to smoke and suck can stop pushes and harass flankers. She’s very difficult to play effectively, so most people avoid her altogether in favor of easier choices.
Level C: Phoenix
Phoenix is the worst Duelist in the game in his current state, and while he could still be good in the right hands, the other Duelists just have more to offer with their kits. He has the standard wall, molly, and blink, but he doesn’t have a move ability like Neon, Reyna, and Jett, so he has trouble disengaging. His ultimate also doesn’t offer much value over other ultimate abilities, so most fraggers end up choose another Duelist instead of Phoenix.
