Valorant's 2.09 Patch released on Tuesday and as with each new patch and hotfix for Valorant, how the Agents play and work with one another has changed, if only slightly. There have only been some minor changes in the Agents this go around, but still, it's worth examining where each Agent ranks in our tier list.
Valorant 2.09 Patch Agent Tier List
S Tier - Sova, Jett, Sage, Killjoy, Raze
Not much changing up at the top. The particular order of these five Agents can be switched around, depending on your preference and playstyle, but without a doubt, these are the five best Agents currently in Valorant. This could change in future patches, of course, so it's best to enjoy being on top right now.
A Tier - Cypher, Astra, Reyna, Viper, Omen
A Tier has the most action as far as changes to the game, with Viper's smoke being nerfed, but even still, she's staying put. The smoke damage nerf wasn't so major as to bump her down to B Tier, but now players might think twice about choosing her, especially if they're in solo queue. Cypher is still the best at gathering intelligence, and if players can get past Astra's learning curve, she's a top choice as well.
B Tier - Brimstone, Phoenix, Skye, Breach, Yoru
And at last, there is B Tier. Valorant's game balance has been excellent in the last few patches, so unlike other games, there really isn't a major drop-off in terms of Agents. Once again, preference plays a huge role in being effective with an Agent, so even though they might not be as statistically powerful or good as S or A Tier Agents, Phoenix, Yoru, Breach, and the others down here definitely can't be classified as useless.
