Here at Gamezo, we strive to bring you all the relevant news regarding Valorant, ranging from tournament details to roster updates and patch notes. This time, I thought it would be worth taking a look into the best agents in Valorant right now. With some people playing casually and others striving to be the best in the Valorant ranked ladder, each Valorant agent has their own unique use.
Who is the best agent?
Everyone has been compiling their lists of favorites or who they feel is best to use. Thankfully, Blitz has compiled data so we can understand which agents are used the most and which are the most effective.
Before the Ranked playlist came out, there were three regular agents making it into the top end of tier lists. Sage, Cypher and Sova were consistently being recommended and advised as the best agents to play with and master abilities for.
Has it changed since the Ranked playlist released?
It is common at the start of new games and patches for different characters (or in this case, agents) to be deemed meta. With the full Valorant game being out for less than a month, there is still a great learning curve to be completed for many. This is why we see a fluctuation in who tops the charts at the best agent at the beginning.
Best Valorant Agent in Ranked
With the majority of the community jumping into the newly released Ranked mode, I thought it would be best to start here. Thanks to Blitz, here are the full statistics they have. The statistics come from all Ranked matches that have been played linked to their software.
Based on the tier lists created before Ranked was released, there are still some similarities. Sage still sits on the top of the charts, but Sova has dropped down the ranks drastically. Over the past week or so, there has been a lot of hype around Reyna. Reyna is being deemed the best agent, and she is currently 2nd in the competitive rankings.
Best Valorant Agent for Unrated
Whilst the unrated mode can still have a competitive feel to it, it is realistically mostly casual-based players. It is common to see a great deal of disparity between the competitive and casual player base. Below, you can see the Blitz unrated statistics for agents.
Based on this, it is clear that both sides of the player base are similar. Sage and Reyna are the most popular agents in Valorant. Everything below that mixes a little bit as expected. In conclusion, at this point, the best Valorant agents to use are Reyna and Sova.
