Wondering what Valorant Weapon are best in March 2022? Here's everything you need to know.

As Patch 4.04 went live and Episode 4 Act II is well underway, new rewards and weapons skins were added. Players should take note that since the February tier list, no changes have been made to weapons. Thus, the tier list will be the same as February's. However, with Riot Games making drastic changes to Agents and the Icebox map in the most recent patch, players can expect to see weapon changes in the coming future.

I would like to mention that while these weapons are the "best through the worst", Valorant is a highly skill-based game. Whereas, weapon efficacy has much more to do with player skill rather than overall weapon statistics.

Valorant Weapon Tier List March 2022

S Tier

  • Operator
  • Phantom
  • Vandal

Unsurprisingly, these three weapons remain the most consistent and best weapons in Valorant. Valorant seems to follow a similar formula as CS:GO, where the Sniper Rifle, Suppressed AR and Unsuppressed AR are the best guns to use for most situations. It would be interesting to see nerfs to these weapons so that others may shine and a new meta could unfold.

A Tier

  • Ghost
  • Spectre
  • Ares
  • Marshal
  • Sheriff

The main weapon to take caution of in this tier is the Sheriff. While the Sheriff is an incredibly powerful weapon, similar to the Desert Eagle in CS:GO, it is worthless if players do not have an accurate aim. For players that want a gun on a similar scale with the Sheriff, I recommend the more forgiving weapons of the Spectre or the Ares.

I expect this tier will be shaken up the most throughout Episode 4 as many are just a few buffs or nerfs away from being taken out of this tier.

B Tier

  • Bulldog
  • Odin
  • Guardian
  • Judge
  • Frenzy

The Bulldog and the Guardian were buffed at the start of Episode 4, with an increase in their fire rate. I would love to see these weapons even further buffed as to compete with the S tier weapons for a fresh meta.

C Tier

  • Shorty
  • Stinger
  • Classic
  • Bucky

It seems that in competitive FPS games, Shotguns typically get the short end of the stick with it comes to buffs and nerfs. While certainly useful in cheesy scenarios, avoid these weapons at all cost.

I sincerely hope that Riot decides to make big changes this Act as to give Valorant a fresh feeling instead of staying complacent with the current meta.
