Best Valorant Duelists (Tier List)

Welcome, my fellow gamers and enthusiasts of the tactical shooter genre! Are you tired of being the punching bag in Valorant matches? Are you looking to dominate the competition with some flashy moves and sick plays? Well, look no further because we’ve got the ultimate tier list of the Best Valorant Duelists to help you climb those ranks faster than a caffeinated cheetah on Red Bull!

Whether you’re a Jett main with ninja-like reflexes, a Phoenix player who likes to play with fire, or a Reyna aficionado who feeds off the enemy’s tears, we’ve got you covered. So sit back, relax, and get ready to be amazed by the sheer awesomeness of these duelists as we rank them from S-tier to C-tier (aka “Commiting is bad”).

But be warned, dear readers, as with any tier list, there will be controversy, disagreements, and possibly even some hurt feelings. So buckle up and get ready for the ride, because this is gonna be one bumpy, yet hilarious, journey!


Starting off strong with our S-tier, we have the cream of the crop, the top dogs, the head honchos. These are the agents that make you tremble with fear when they’re on the enemy team and make you feel like a superhero when they’re on your side.

They’re the ones who can single-handedly turn the tide of a match with their incredible abilities and precision aim. If you’re lucky enough to get your hands on one of these bad boys, hold on tight and get ready for a wild ride!


Why does she deserve an S-tier spot on your duelist tier list? Well, let me break it down for you.

First off, her Boom Bot ability is like having a pet puppy that just wants to chase down enemies and blow them up. Who doesn’t want a cute little robot friend that also happens to be a killing machine?

Next up, her Blast Pack ability is basically like having a rocket-powered skateboard. Just slap that bad boy onto a surface, hit the detonator, and watch as you fly across the map like Tony Hawk on steroids. It’s like Raze is saying, “Who needs legs when you have explosives?”

Her Paint Shells ability is also a great crowd control tool. It’s like throwing a mini fireworks show into a group of enemies and watching them scatter like ants. Plus, it’s a free ability, so you can spam it all day long.

And let’s not forget about her ultimate ability, the Showstopper. It’s like having your own personal Fourth of July fireworks display, except instead of pretty colors, it’s just pure destruction raining down from the sky. It’s like Raze is saying, “Hey, enemy team, check out my new toy!”

Overall, Raze’s abilities are just pure fun. She’s like the kid who always got in trouble for playing with firecrackers, except now she’s all grown up and has access to military-grade explosives. So if you want to add a little chaos and mayhem to your Valorant matches, Raze is the duelist for you.

Moving on to our A-tier, we have the reliable and solid picks. These agents may not have the flashy moves or the “wow” factor of our S-tier, but they get the job done.

They’re the ones who can hold down a site, flash enemies to oblivion, and keep the team alive with their healing abilities. They may not be the life of the party, but they’re the ones who keep the party going.


Meet Jett, the queen of the skies and the terror of her enemies. She’s like a nimble ninja on steroids, able to move faster than a speeding bullet and slice her foes with the grace of a ballet dancer.

Let’s start with her passive ability, Space Drift. With this, Jett can glide through the air like a bird, and I’m not talking about those lame pigeons you see in the city. I’m talking about an eagle soaring high in the sky, looking down at its prey and plotting its attack. If you’re falling off a building, Jett can just glide down to safety, leaving her enemies scratching their heads.

Next up is her basic ability, Cloudburst. With this, Jett can instantly throw a smoke bomb that blocks vision for a brief period. And if that’s not enough, she can curve the smoke in the direction of her crosshair. It’s like playing a game of billiards, but instead of hitting a ball, you’re hitting your enemies’ heads with your knives.

Then there’s her Q ability, Updraft. This ability allows Jett to propel herself high into the air, like she’s auditioning for Cirque du Soleil. It’s perfect for getting the drop on unsuspecting foes, or for avoiding danger when things get too hot to handle.

Her signature ability, Tailwind, is like a gust of wind that propels Jett in the direction she’s moving. If she’s standing still, she propels forward like a bullet. It’s like she’s wearing rocket boots, except they don’t explode.

And finally, her ultimate ability, Blade Storm. Jett equips a set of highly accurate throwing knives and becomes the deadliest assassin in the game. With a single knife, she can deal 150 damage to the head, 50 to the body, and 42 to the legs. And if she gets a kill, she gets another knife to throw. It’s like playing a game of darts, except the darts can kill you.


Look who we have here! It’s Phoenix, the fiery hot-headed duelist who’s ready to light up the battlefield. And let me tell you, this guy deserves a solid spot in the A tier of your Valorant duelist tier list.

First off, let’s talk about his passive ability, Heating Up. Who needs a health pack when you can just stand in your own flames and heal up like it’s nobody’s business? It’s like having your own personal campfire, except you’re not roasting marshmallows, you’re just roasting your enemies.

But it’s not just his passive that makes him so great. His abilities are downright spicy, starting with his Blaze wall. It’s like a giant middle finger to your opponents, blocking their vision and burning them to a crisp if they try to pass through it. And if that’s not enough, you can even bend the wall in the direction of your crosshair like some kind of flame-wielding wizard.

And then we have his Curveball, which is basically a flashy way to say “gotcha!” Blind your enemies with a curving flare orb that explodes in their faces like a fireworks display gone wrong. It’s like playing a game of “Marco Polo,” but instead of saying “Polo,” you’re saying “Bamboozled!”

But wait, there’s more! His signature ability, Hot Hands, is like a molotov cocktail on steroids. Throw a fireball that explodes on impact and creates a fiery zone that damages anyone who dares to step foot in it. It’s like a disco inferno, but instead of John Travolta dancing, it’s just your enemies writhing in pain.

And finally, we have his ultimate ability, Run it Back. This is like having a free get-out-of-jail card. Place a marker at your location and if you die or the timer runs out, you’ll respawn at that spot with full health and armor. It’s like playing a video game on easy mode, except your opponents are the ones getting wrecked.


In our B-tier, we have the slightly riskier picks. These agents can be game-changers in the right hands, but they require a bit more finesse and skill to use effectively.

They may have abilities that can heal or damage, but they’re not as reliable as our A-tier. However, in the hands of a skilled player, they can be deadly.


Behold! The queen of soul-sucking, eye-throwing, orb-consuming shenanigans. She’s a bit like a vampire, but instead of drinking blood, she drinks the souls of her enemies (and sometimes her allies if they’re feeling generous).

Now, don’t get me wrong, Reyna has some pretty neat tricks up her sleeve. Her passive ability, Soul Harvest, lets her collect Soul Orbs from fallen foes, giving her a chance to heal up or turn invisible. It’s like she’s playing a twisted game of Pac-Man, but instead of eating pellets, she’s chomping on the souls of her enemies. Yum.

And then there’s her Leer ability, which is like a spooky eye that makes enemies nearsighted. It’s like throwing a snowball at someone’s face, except the snowball is an eye, and it makes them blind. Fun times.

But here’s the thing: Reyna’s abilities are a bit selfish, aren’t they? Sure, she can heal herself and turn invisible, but what about her team? She’s not exactly a team player, is she? It’s like playing a game of soccer and having one player hog the ball the entire time. Sure, they might score a goal or two, but it’s not exactly a winning strategy.

That’s why Reyna is a solid B tier agent. She’s not bad, per se, but she’s not exactly the MVP of the team. She’s like the kid in school who’s really good at dodgeball, but not much else. Sure, she might win a few matches, but she’s not exactly a well-rounded student.


And finally, in our C-tier, we have the agents that are a bit of a mixed bag. They may have unique abilities or playstyles, but they’re not as versatile or useful as our higher tiers.

They may require a specific team comp or map to truly shine, and they’re not as popular picks in the game. But hey, if you’re feeling brave, give them a shot and see what kind of magic you can conjure up!


Ah, Yoru, the master of deception, the trickster extraordinaire, the…wait, who? Oh right, Yoru, the C-tier duelist in Valorant.

Let’s take a look at his abilities, shall we? First up, we have “Fakeout,” which is basically Yoru creating a decoy of himself that explodes in a blinding flash when destroyed by enemies. So, basically, he’s playing a game of peekaboo with his opponents. Cute, but not exactly lethal.

Next, we have “Blindside,” which involves Yoru ripping an unstable dimensional fragment from reality and throwing it to create a flash that winds up once it collides with a hard surface. Sounds like something you’d do in a game of dodgeball, not a game of Valorant.

Moving on, we have “Gatecrash,” which allows Yoru to teleport to a stationary tether or trigger a fake teleport. I mean, teleportation is cool and all, but it’s not exactly going to win you a game of Valorant.

And finally, we have Yoru’s ultimate ability, “Dimensional Drift,” which equips him with a mask that allows him to see between dimensions and drift into his own dimension, making him unable to be affected or seen by enemies from the outside. Hmm, I guess this could be useful if Yoru wants to take a quick nap during the game or something.

Let’s talk about Neon, the flashy agent who’s supposed to be as hot as the neon lights in Vegas. But let’s be real, she’s more like a flickering bulb that’s about to give up any moment. Bless her heart, she’s got some cool abilities, but they’re just not enough to make her a top-tier agent.

Let’s start with her passive ability, “Energy”. It’s like getting a quick boost of caffeine after a boring meeting, but it’s not exactly going to make you jump out of your seat with excitement. I mean, it’s nice, but it’s not exactly like getting a surprise visit from your celebrity crush.

Now, her basic ability, “Fast Lane”. It’s like a temporary invisibility cloak, but instead of making you invisible, it just blocks your vision. It’s like trying to hide behind a curtain that’s too short to cover your feet. It might work for a quick second, but then everyone knows you’re there.

Moving on to her Q ability, “Relay Bolt”. It’s like playing a game of bumper cars, except instead of bumping into each other, you’re blasting your enemies away with concussive force. It’s a fun ability, but it’s not exactly the most strategic. It’s like playing a game of dodgeball and just throwing the ball randomly in the air.

Now let’s talk about her signature ability, “High Gear”. It’s like strapping on a pair of rocket-powered roller skates, but instead of gracefully gliding around, you’re more like a baby giraffe trying to stand up for the first time. Sure, you can go fast, but it’s not exactly a smooth ride.

Lastly, her ultimate ability, “Overdrive”. It’s like shooting a bolt of lightning from your fingertips, except instead of looking like a superhero, you look like a mad scientist who’s about to blow up their lab. It’s a powerful ability, but it’s not exactly user-friendly. It’s like trying to use chopsticks to eat soup. It might work eventually, but you’ll end up making a mess.


All in all,  If you want to dominate the battlefield and blow your enemies to smithereens, Raze is the agent for you. And if you’re looking for some serious style points, Jett, Phoenix, and Reyna all made it into the A and B tiers. These agents are smooth, sleek, and will have you feeling like a badass in no time.

But let’s be real here, we can’t forget about the bottom of the barrel, the C tier. Yoru and Neon might be cool and all, but they just don’t have what it takes to compete with the big dogs. Sorry, not sorry, folks.

In the end, whether you’re playing Valorant or just admiring the characters from afar, it all comes down to personal preference. So don’t worry too much about who’s in which tier – just pick the agent that speaks to you on a deep, aesthetic level, and go forth into battle with style and panache. And if all else fails, just remember: you can always blame your losses on lag.
