Valorant Best Agent Guide

In Valorant characters are called 'Agents' and each have their own unique playstyle and abilities. Unlike other games in the genre like Overwatch where you have access to several powerful abilities on short cooldowns a character's abilities in Valorant are more varied, and most of them have to be bought. Also unlike other character-based shooters your agent isn't stuck with a specialized weapon, Valorant is the same as Counter-Strike where you can spend money buying weapons, armour and abilities at the beginning of each round.
