VALORANT Tier List. This Tier List will always display the best Agents, based on the latest patch. VALORANT is free to play.
To keep the meta interesting, new Agents will be introduced to the roster on a regular basis. We’ll determine which agents are the most VALORANT here. It will be nearly exclusively based on high-level competitive play. Agents who can assist in the carrying of teams at any ELO will be considered.
If you have any input on this list, please leave it in the comments or contact us via our Contact page.

Sage is vital for her slows and heals. I think Sova is only a B at most currently because of the prevalence of smokes and ease of counterplay. Cypher I agree is great on a triple sight, as he can solo hold effectively to buy time for the rotate so while the guide isn’t bad it’s too frag focused and doesn’t see very step for example if Sova shoots an arrow at most it gets one pulse off, if he knows we are there no info is gained if he didn’t k ow it was almost a waste of an… Read more »
Also as my play continued I realised the immense value of safely smoking and vipers skill ceiling because she can basically remove sova later in the game as his recon arrow fails to scan past smokes
About Raze “c4” i think its good for mobility to for example use her rocket from the air or to kill low health agents its pretty usefull for me
It’s absolutely amazing for mobility. Solid in a pinch if you need some quick damage, but I’d argue it’s no replacement for your weapon. Just C4+Jump+Rocket and you’re golden. Raze is great.
sorry for the yeah xD i wanted to tell that i forgot to say that its only for me to use the rocket, i think that with the wapons, you dont have much time to use it.
I thing raze is not that good, her abilities can provide lots of pressure but she has no utility for her team. Her boombot is inconsistent, and her cluster grenade can get a kill but it will give away your position and enemies can follow up on you.
I think her value will continue to shrink more and more. Right now, utility is far superior – vision especially. Breach, Sage, Cypher are all amazing. It doesn’t leave much room for other Agents, especially if Riot expand the roster.
The boombot may seem inconsistent, but it does work for locating enemies, and sometimes it can cause a little panic. The cluster grenade may cause enemies to gain knowledge of your location, but Raze’s kit is built to cause a little commotion.
I think Breach is just an A Tier due his wall breaching abilitys he needs backup with fast movement. on solo hes nearly usless. His ult is great but everyone who has played CS:GO at least to GNM now how to aim eben with scatteret sight. His C ability has a long activate time due nearly every enemy can dodge it.
I gotta agree with you there. Breach is a good agent, but he isn’t as good as this list makes him out to be. The team usually won’t follow up on any plays unless you have a full squad of people you can easily communicate with.
Is it just me, or does Sage seem like she could be a really good Support on League of Legends with a few tweaks to her abilities?
