Valorant Patch 7.04 Agent Tier List

Here’s a breakdown of our Valorant Patch 7.04 Agent tier list:

Tier Agents
S Raze, Viper, Killjoy
A Gekko, Jett, Sova, Omen, Fade
B Skye, Phoenix, Brimstone, Breach, Neon
C Astra, Sage, Harbor, KAY/O, Reyna, Cipher
D Deadlock, Yoru, Chamber

A Closer Look: A Shift in Agent Dynamics

The landscape of Valorant Episode 7 Act 2 has undergone a transformation with the release of Patch 7.04. Nerfs and buffs have disrupted the equilibrium, leading to a new hierarchy among Agents. Notable changes to Jett, Gekko, and Skye have played a significant role in this dynamic shift.

S-Tier: Rising Dominance

The S-Tier is reserved for the cream of the crop: Raze, Viper, and Killjoy. Viper and Killjoy maintain their esteemed positions, while Raze has ascended due to the adjustments that followed Jett’s nerfs. Raze now stands as the premier Duelist post-Patch 7.04.

A-Tier: Adapting to Change

The A-Tier consists of Gekko, Jett, Sova, Omen, and Fade. Jett’s descent from S-Tier is attributed to the nerfs, which have somewhat impacted her capabilities. Gekko, however, received a buff, elevating him in contrast to his standing in Valorant Episode 7 Act 1. Riot Games is set to rectify an unintended Mosh Pit buff for Gekko in Patch 7.05 on Sept. 6.

B-Tier: Balancing Acts

Skye, Phoenix, Brimstone, Breach, and Neon occupy the B-Tier. Skye, like Jett, bore the brunt of the nerfs. Riot Games acknowledged Skye’s lack of “clear weaknesses” in Valorant Episode 7 Act 1, prompting necessary adjustments. Breach’s Aftershock received tweaks, maintaining his B-Tier presence with potential for A-Tier impact.

C-Tier: Mediocrity Prevails

Astra, Sage, Harbor, KAY/O, Reyna, and Cipher constitute the C-Tier. Recent nerfs, particularly affecting Astra, have relegated these Agents to a state of mediocrity, making them less viable on most maps. Nonetheless, Reyna remains a popular yet polarizing pick in Ranked matches.

D-Tier: Struggles Continue

The D-Tier encapsulates Deadlock, Yoru, and Chamber. Deadlock’s performance at Valorant Champions 2023 highlighted his status as the weakest Agent. Patch 7.04 changes had minimal impact on Yoru and Chamber, maintaining their unsatisfactory competitive viability.

As Valorant Episode 7 Act 2 unfolds, this tier list provides insight into the evolving meta and the Agents that are poised to excel or falter. Choose your Agents wisely to conquer the competitive landscape.
