Agents have one Signature Ability which they get for free each round.
Riot was aiming to launch the game with 12 agents, but only 8 were available in the early press builds. The March 29, 2020, private event introduced Breach. Since the Closed Beta launch on April 7, 2020, Raze was added along with the map Split, bringing the Agent total to 10. Five agents are available at first launch, with two more that can be easily unlocked by leveling up in the game. More agents can be unlocked by taking Contracts and gathering XP on them.
It is the intention of the developers that one agent be released per act.
Each agent fulfills one of four roles, defined by their abilities and playstyle:
- Controllers are experts in slicing up dangerous territory to set their team up for success.
- Duelists are self-sufficient fraggers who their team expects, through abilities and skills, to get high frags and seek out engagements first.
- Initiators challenge angles by setting up their team to enter contested ground and push defenders away.
- Sentinels are defensive experts who can lock down areas and watch flanks, both on attacker and defender rounds.
List of Agents
Note: The numbers in the "No." column are in the chronological order of when the agents were recruited by the VALORANT Protocol. You can find their numbers in game by going to their contracts and looking at their banners. There is an eighth agent in the VALORANT Protocol but their identity is unknown, and they are not yet a playable agent in VALORANT.
- The in-game heights of the agents have to be kept the same so that no agent's height has an advantage over others, but the canon heights of the agents has been shared by the game's Creative Director.
- Jett is the shortest agent and Breach is the tallest.
