Cypher is one of Valorant's best Agents. The things some players can do with Cypher are unbelievable. While hard to master, his abilities are quite simple to figure out.

Beginner players can use Cypher to sit back and study the game rather than rushing head on and fragging out. Holding down a site with his camera, Trap Wire, and Cyber Cage a wonderful place for a beginner to start in Valorant.


#4 - Sova

Sova is a very useful Valorant Agent, much like Cypher. Beginner players will find that his abilities are as easy as they are important. Beginners should focus on helping the team as much as possible, rather than trying to be the MVP.

His Recon Arrow and Owl Drone can give out great intel. Shock Dart is a wonderful way to do damage from a safe distance. The same goes for his Ultimate, Hunter's Fury.


#3 - Raze

For beginner players wanting to try a Duelist, Raze is a safe bet. She can blow up just about anyone. That makes her a great first Agent to try and get the hang of.

Her Boom Bot helps with clearing lanes, the Paint Shells can do some serious damage, and there are a ton of ways to get creative with Blast Packs. Her Showstopper Ultimate is almost a guaranteed kill every time, too.


#2 - Phoenix

Another Duelist to try is Phoenix. He might be the best bet for beginners wanting to learn every facet of Valorant. His abilities are all very similar to what other Agents can offer, outside of his Ultimate.

He has a flash ability, a screen ability, and a molly. His self-healing is helpful too. Lastly, Run It Back lets players push up and take on some gunfights without the consequence of actually dying.


#1 - Brimstone
