Valorant Agent tier list for February 2022 has finally arrived with the new Act 4, the rankings were widely considered to have changed drastically with the new Agent Neon, but that has not been the case. With much speculation that Neon would surpass Jett, her abilities have been put into play by the Valorant community and it definitely has its pros and cons.

When highlighting other Agents, as for this month, players won’t be seeing a huge jump in rankings. The Yoru rework has been promised by Riot Games to come in Act 4, Episode 2, which should be released next month. Until then, the tier list is as follows.

Tier 1

  • Jett
  • Sage
  • Sova
  • Viper
  • Astra

Tier 2

  • Chamber
  • Reyna
  • Killjoy
  • Cypher
  • Raze

Tier 3

  • Neon
  • Breach
  • Skye
  • KAY/O

Tier 4

  • Phoenix
  • Omen
  • Brimstone
  • Yoru

The list overall has changed slightly as there has been more playtime of Astra since her pre-planning abilities can become very strategic.

Overall, the biggest surprise is how low Neon has actually placed. But this isn’t a shocker when looking at her abilities. Considering that Valorant can be a slow-paced game when setting up positions, Neon’s speed can be a deathtrap, and not for the enemy, but for herself. Since sometimes speed isn’t what the team needs in a game. 

Neon disregards caution signs and goes straight into battle. This head-on action may be good for some players, but overall, it's not a quality to look for in an Agent.

Another Agent that hasn’t had the spotlight in a hot second is Chamber. Many thought Chamber would rise to the top of the list in no time because of his detrimental ultimate and trap ability. And they are still not wrong, Chamber is pulling a strong lead to becoming one of the best Agents in Valorant, the issue is, Chamber can be an Agent only a few can play. 

Chamber was marketed as the “ideal sniper," but not everyone can appreciate sniping. Because of this little quirk, he probably won’t be seeing the top of the list anytime soon.
