There has been plenty of debates over who the best Agent in Valorant actually is. According to 100 Thieves player, Josh “Steel” Nissan, the best Valorant Agent is Sova, but no one plays him, and instead, they pick popular duelists. Here’s more about Sova and Steel.
Is Sova the best Agent?
Sova is classified as an Initiator in Valorant and has several useful abilities. He can use his Recon Bolt ability to learn about where opponents might be. He can then use his Owl Drone to find exactly where they are if need be. Both of these abilities help his teammates by giving them intel on the opponent. If Sova knows where his opponents are, he can use his Shock Darts to deal damage to them. He can also use his ultimate if he has it to even potentially get picks. His combination of utility and damage makes him a great teammate and individual Agent.
Most players, according to Steel, however, would rather play duelists and bait their teammates than helping their teams by playing Sova. Duelist Agents include Jett, Pheonix, Raze, Reyna, and Yoru and have abilities that help them pick up kills. While most of them offer some form of utility, they aren’t nearly as team-focused. Who the best Agent is, however, is up for debate. Steel certainly seems to think it’s Sova.
Crazy to think that sova is literally the best agent in the game and yet nobody plays him in ranked games and would prefer to go triple baiting duelists
