In VALORANT, the term ‘Agents’ refers to the playable characters who embody the role of agents within the VALORANT Protocol. These agents belong to various classes and possess a set of four unique abilities. Players can typically unlock these agents using in-game currency known as Kingdom Credits.
Agents are designated into one of four roles based on their abilities and preferred style of play:
- Controller Agents: These experts excel at cutting through hazardous terrain to create opportunities for their team’s victory.
- Duelist Agents: Fraggers who operate independently and are relied upon by their team to secure high kill counts and engage enemies first, using their abilities and skills.
- Initiator Agents: They disrupt enemy positions by preparing the battlefield for their team to enter contested areas and force defenders to retreat.
- Sentinel Agents: Masters of defense, these agents can secure areas and monitor flanks effectively, whether on the attack or defense, making them invaluable to their team.
