Best Initiator Agents In Valorant (Tier List)

Best Initiator Agents In Valorant (Tier List)

Are you tired of feeling like a wallflower in Valorant? Do you yearn to be the one who takes charge and leads your team to victory? Fear not, my friend, for I have scoured the game and have compiled a list of the best initiator agents to help you do just that.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. “But I don’t have the brains, brawn, or bravery to lead my team to victory.” Well, don’t worry, because these agents have got you covered. From the strategic mastermind to the fearless risk-taker, these agents will have you leading your team to glory in no time.

So, without further ado, let’s dive into the world of Valorant initiators and see who reigns supreme in the world of tactical gameplay. Just be warned: once you start leading your team to victory, there’s no going back. You might just become the star player your team always needed, and everyone will be looking to you for guidance. But hey, no pressure, right?


Being in the S Tier is like being crowned the king or queen of a land, but instead of a crown, you get a shiny medal or a pat on the back. It’s the kind of place where the air is a little bit cleaner, the sun shines a little bit brighter, and your enemies cower in fear at the mere sight of your name on the character select screen.


Fade is the queen of terror and the mistress of initiation in Valorant. It’s no wonder she’s an S Tier initiator. Let me tell you why.

First of all, her passive ability, Terror Trail, is like having a private detective on your team. Enemies can run, they can hide, but they can’t escape the dark mist. And if they try to, the prowler will be waiting for them. It’s like having a loyal dog that’s been trained to hunt down your enemies and nearsight them on impact. Who needs friends when you have a loyal prowler, am I right?

Then there’s her C ability, Seize. Imagine throwing a knot of raw fear at your enemies and watching them panic as they’re held in place. It’s like you’re saying, “Hey, I know you’re scared, but you should be more scared.” And the best part? You can deafen and decay them while they’re held. It’s like being a dentist, except instead of filling cavities, you’re filling your enemies with terror

But wait, there’s more. Her signature ability, Haunt, is like having your own personal ghost that does your bidding. Throw it out, and enemies will be revealed and marked by terror trails. It’s like having a game of Marco Polo, except instead of saying “Marco” and “Polo,” you’re saying “Terror” and “Trail.” And if enemies try to destroy your ghost, well, they’ll just end up creating more terror trails for you to follow.

And last but not least, her ultimate ability, XNIGHTFALL. It’s like unleashing the power of Freddy Krueger on your enemies. Caught in the wave of unstoppable nightmare energy, enemies will be marked by terror trails, deafened, and decayed. It’s like saying, “Sweet dreams, but not really because I’m here to haunt you.”

A Tier is where the slightly-less-skilled-but-still-pretty-dang-good agents reside. It’s the tier where you can still feel confident that you’re making a solid choice, but without the added pressure of being the top dog. It’s like being the middle child – not quite the oldest, not quite the youngest, but still special in your own way.


Sova is not just an ordinary archer. He’s got some tricks up his sleeve, or should I say, up his bowstring?

First and foremost, let’s talk about his Cowl Drone. Imagine having your own personal bird’s eye view. That’s right, Sova can fly a drone and shoot a dart that reveals the location of any poor soul who’s hit by it. It’s like playing a game of hide-and-seek, but Sova’s the seeker, and you better believe he’s going to find you.

But wait, there’s more! With his Shock Bolt, Sova can rain down explosive death from above. And if that’s not enough to intimidate you, he can even bounce the bolt off walls like a crazy game of pinball. Who needs grenades when you have Sova on your team?

And let’s not forget his Recon Bolt. This bad boy reveals the location of any enemies caught in its line of sight. So if you’re thinking about sneaking up on Sova, think again because he’ll know where you are. It’s like having a mini UAV, but instead of a helicopter, it’s a freakin’ arrow.

But wait, there’s more! Sova’s ultimate ability, Hunter’s Fury, is like something out of a sci-fi movie. He shoots three long-range, wall-piercing energy blasts that not only deal damage but also reveal the location of any enemies caught in their path. And the best part? He can reuse this ability up to two more times while the timer is active. That’s right, Sova’s ultimate is so powerful that he gets to use it multiple times. Talk about overkill.


Behold the Tasmanian tiger-toting, hawk-guiding, healing hero of Valorant! You know what they say, when Skye is on your team, your enemies better start praying for mercy (or at least invest in some earplugs, because she can get pretty loud).

So, what makes Skye an A Tier Initiator, you ask? Let me tell you, my friend, it’s all about her abilities. First off, she’s got this handy-dandy healing trinket that can revive her teammates faster than a defibrillator on steroids. And don’t worry, Skye won’t heal herself, so you won’t have to worry about her stealing your health packs like some kind of greedy goblin.

But Skye’s not just a healer, oh no. She’s also got a Tasmanian tiger trinket that she can send out like a predator missile, exploding in a concussive blast and dealing some serious damage to any enemies in its path. It’s like having your very own virtual tiger that you can unleash on unsuspecting foes. Roar!

And if that wasn’t enough, Skye’s got a hawk trinket that she can send flying forward, transforming it into a flash that blinds enemies and leaves them stumbling around like a bunch of drunks on a Friday night. It’s like having your own personal paparazzi that you can use to dazzle your enemies with a camera flash. Say cheese!

Last but not least, Skye’s ultimate ability is the Seeker trinket, which she can use to send out three Seekers that track down the three closest enemies and nearsight them. It’s like having your own private detective agency that can hunt down your enemies and bring them to justice (or at least make them easier targets).


B Tier is the tier where agents go to be slightly above average, but not quite good enough to make it to the top. It’s like being a backup quarterback – you might not be the starter, but you’re still an important part of the team. You’re the understudy, the benchwarmer, the reliable backup plan.

But don’t despair if you find yourself in the B Tier. You might not be the star of the show, but you’re still a valuable player. You’re the unsung hero, the workhorse, the agent that quietly gets the job done.

Let’s break down his kit, shall we? First up, we’ve got CFRAG/MENT. This bad boy is KAY/O’s explosive fragment. Throw it on the ground and watch as it explodes multiple times, dealing near-lethal damage to anyone in the center. It’s like a party popper, but instead of confetti, it’s full of pain and misery. And who doesn’t love pain and misery?

Next, we have QFLASH/DRIVE. This is KAY/O’s flash grenade. Throw it at your enemies and watch as they scramble around, blind as bats. It’s like a rave, but instead of glowsticks, it’s full of confusion and disorientation. And who doesn’t love confusion and disorientation?

Moving on to KAY/O’s signature ability, we’ve got EZERO/POINT. This is KAY/O’s suppression blade. Throw it at a surface and watch as it suppresses anyone in the radius of the explosion. It’s like a blackout, but instead of a power outage, it’s full of frustration and annoyance. And who doesn’t love frustration and annoyance?

And last but not least, we’ve got KAY/O’s ultimate ability, XNULL/CMD. This is where KAY/O really shines. He overloads with polarized radianite energy that pulses from him in a massive radius. Anyone hit with the pulses is suppressed for a short duration. And while he’s overloaded, KAY/O gains combat stim and can even be re-stabilized if he’s downed. It’s like a power trip, but instead of a boss fight, it’s full of domination and superiority. And who doesn’t love domination and superiority?


C Tier is the tier where agents go to be slightly below average. It’s like being the third choice for prom date – you’re still going, but you’re not exactly thrilled about it. You might not be the most popular or the most talented, but you’re still going to have a good time.


First up, we’ve got Breach’s signature ability, “Fault Line”. It’s like he’s throwing a mini-earthquake at his enemies, causing them to be dizzy and unable to use their abilities for a few seconds. It’s like watching a group of toddlers after a round of dizzy bat – they’re stumbling around, trying to figure out what’s going on. And while it’s a handy little tool, it’s not exactly groundbreaking (no pun intended) when it comes to initiators.

Next on the list is Breach’s ultimate ability, “Rolling Thunder”. It’s like he’s unleashing the wrath of Thor himself on his enemies. Except instead of lightning bolts, he’s using a seismic charge to knock them all off their feet. It’s like watching a bunch of drunk college kids trying to navigate a Slip ‘N Slide. But again, while it’s entertaining, it’s not exactly top tier in terms of initiating.

And finally, we’ve got Breach’s other two abilities – “Aftershock” and “Flashpoint”. Don’t get me wrong, they’re useful in their own right. “Aftershock” is like a big “screw you” to anyone hiding behind walls, and “Flashpoint” is like a bright flash of light that leaves your enemies temporarily blind. But let’s be real, they’re not exactly game-changers.


Well, there you have it folks! After much deliberation and a few too many rounds of Spike Rush, we have come to a verdict on the best initiator agents in Valorant. From the stalwart Sova to the explosive KAY/O, there’s no shortage of tactical firepower to choose from.

But let’s be real here, we all know who the real MVP is – the one, the only, the Fade. With her unparalleled ability to wreak havoc around undetected and take out enemies with surgical precision, she’s the ultimate secret weapon for any team. Just don’t get too cocky with her, or you might just end up on the receiving end of the loss.
