VALORANT Agents Guide

Instead of heroes, champions, legends or characters, you play as an agent in VALORANT. The game will have various agents to choose from, all with their own unique abilities. Each agent will have four abilities, each with its own purpose:

  • Two purchasable abilities: can be bought at the beginning of a round via the buy menu.
  • Signature ability: Automatically recharged every time a new round starts. This ability also has a cooldown which varies.
  • Ultimate ability: similar to the ultimate in Overwatch – recharges by getting eliminations and completing objectives.

The Best Agents in VALORANT

Since the game is still in beta, it is too early to say who the best agents are. Our prediction is that Sage will be a valuable agent since she works as a healer (or medic) and has the ultimate ability to resurrect teammates.

Feel free to comment on which agents you believe are the best in the game and why this is.
