Valorant Tier List: All 19 Agents Ranked From Best to Worst

It’s been over 18 months since Riot Games launched its superb tactical shooter Valorant. Several major updates since not only shifted and changed the Agent meta but have also added all-new Agents that have, at times, turned the meta on its head. With the launch of Episode 4, Act II, we’re back again to re-rank Valorant’s Agents into Tiers, according to the big recent meta shift. Without further ado, here’s who we consider the best Agents in Valorant Patch 4.04.

S Tier – Sova

Best Valorant Agents, Ranked

Who the Best Agents in Valorant Are

The meta is trying to shift away from Sova following a nerf to his owl drone and shock darts, but Sova remains a king at the very top of the tier list.

Thanks to his ability to illuminate enemy targets with both his surveillance arrow and owl drone, Sova offers important intel for his team, allowing them to catch attacking rushes before they happen or recon sites for enemies before his team enters. He is invaluable on almost every map in the game.

Sova is an Agent who is both fantastic to learn as a beginner and equally a useful part of any high-elo squad. He’s the eyes of the team, making it easier for both yourself and everyone else to spot targets. And when you want to strike back at targets, his Ultimate is a powerful offensive attack that can blow through walls. This can be used at the start of a round to gain a pick or more defensively to either attack or defend the spike plant/defuse.

Outside of games played on Split and Fracture where his darts offer less value, you won’t see many professional games at the pro esports level that don’t feature Sova. For this reason, he’s an easy S-Tier pick.

Sova Abilities:

  • Shock Bolt – Fire an explosive bolt that emits a damaging pulse of static energy upon impact.
  • Owl Drone – Deploy a pilotable drone that can fire a dart that will Reveal enemies who are hit.
  • Recon Bolt – Fire a bolt that deploys a sonar emitter. The sonar pings tag nearby enemies, causing them to be revealed. Can be destroyed.
  • Ultimate: Hunter’s Fury – Fire up to three deadly energy blasts that spear across the entire map. Each hit enemy takes heavy damage and is marked.
