All VALORANT Agents and their abilities

VALORANT is an exciting, 5v5 tactical shooter game, but instead of soldiers, each player can play as a character known as an ‘agent.’ Each agent comes with a set of unique abilities, bespoke to cater to a specific playstyle. The agents include KAY/O, Astra, Yoru, Skye, Raze, Jett, Omen, Breach, Killjoy, Reyna, Cypher, Viper, Sova, Sage, Phoenix, and Brimstone.

VALORANT Classes

As with other FPS games, VALORANT also has its classes: Initiators, Duelists, Sentinels, and Controllers.

  • Initiators concentrate on gathering intel.
  • Duelists push forth into conflicts with the enemy team. They are your team’s attackers.
  • Sentinels serve as the team’s defenders and usually play the backline.
  • Controllers excel at shutting off sightlines and provide support.

Each agent comes with four special abilities — from conventional utility to magical powers that help them get the edge in battle. You can use their signature skills from the start, while their ultimate charges over time. Check out this quick guide on all their abilities to help you decide which one to pick first.
