Valorant Patch 1.15 weapon tier list will be essential to know for players looking to climb the ladder in the new year. Because we can expect patch 1.15 to be rolled out in 2021 it’s entirely possible that Riot will make the first patch of the new year a major one. However, there are some constants we can expect to stay the same.

Valorant Patch 1.15 Weapon Tier List

S Tier - Phantom, Vandal, Operator, Ghost

These are excellent weapons, they’re only downside is their cost. Let’s focus on the Ghost though, it is probably the best out of the pistol class. It can kill quickly in early rounds with proper aim. In the first round, it is definitely a worthwhile pickup in lieu of light armor. The Phantom, Vandal, and Operator should be self-explanatory. It’s personal choice with the Phantom and Vandal. With the Operator, picking it up should be dependent on player skill. Not everyone can use the Operator effectively, and that’s ok.

A Tier - Spectre, Bucky, Judge, Odin, Sheriff

These weapons are solid, but generally speaking, going for any of the S Tier weapons over these should be a no-brainer. These are the guns that should be bought when money is scarce or when a player is in specialized circumstances. The shotguns can be useful in certain maps on defense, buying them makes sense there.

B Tier - Bulldog, Guardian, Marshall, Classic

These guns are tough to make useful. There’s not really any reason to buy a Bulldog or Guardian is the player can afford a Phantom or Vandal. Even if those two rifles are out of reach then a Spectre is better for its price. The same goes for the Marshall, the Operator is always better. As for the Classic, it’s not good, but it is free. Sticking with the Classic in early rounds is perfectly acceptable.

C Tier - Frenzy, Stinger, Ares, Shorty

Stay far away from these guns unless you’re trying to make a highlight video.
