When in doubt, the Spectre is your number one.

The Spectre is an SMG that is a primary weapon in VALORANT.

Summary

A jack-of-all-trades weapon with a great balance of damage, fire rate, and accuracy—at both short and mid range. It haunts the corners of every map and requires only steady aim to drop foes at long distance.

The Spectre is a moderately-priced SMG. Equipped with a large magazine and a silencer, it can be used to spam through vision blockers without much risk to the player's ammo count or positioning.

As an SMG, the Spectre is most effective at shorter range or when used on the move, though it has decent stats and features all-round to make it usable at medium to long range as well. As a more expensive SMG and expected upgrade to the Stinger, the Spectre's higher magazine capacity makes it a better option for sustained firefights against multiple enemies. However, the Spectre's lower fire rate makes the Stinger a more suitable choice for eliminating individual agents.

In comparison to the similarly-priced Ares, the Spectre has more mobility and lower spread but cannot compete with an Ares player who is in control of their fire in a sustained firefight, though the Spectre is quicker at wiping out enemies with headshots at close range.
