Valorant Pistols Tier List: The Best Sidearms

1- Sheriff

  • 800 credits
  • 4 fire rate
  • 6 magazine capacity

The Sheriff has a low rate of fire and magazine size, but does monster damage. Landing a headshot at close range is often enough to kill. It takes a little more finesse to properly use the Sheriff, but your skill is rewarded.

2- Ghost

  • 500 credits
  • 6.75 fire rate
  • 15 magazine capacity

Unlike the Sheriff, the Ghost is a stealth oriented weapon. It has a silencer attached, giving it additional accuracy and allowing you to sneak around. It's for a different play style, but nonetheless the Ghost is an extremely effective and reliable sidearm.

3- Frenzy

  • 400 credits
  • 10 fire rate
  • 13 magazine capacity

Frenzy is an automatic pistol that only really works at close range. It's better than the default Classic, and you could use Frenzy if you're strapped for cash for an eco round. If you get the drop on someone, you can spray them down quickly or fire in bursts at medium range.

4- Classic

  • Free
  • 6.75 fire rate
  • 12 magazine capacity

This is the free gun you get at the beginning of every game. It's the lowest one because it's free, and it quickly replaced once you're able to. The only thing it has going for it is that it's free and everyone gets it.
