These Agents need some love.
Astra used to be the most-picked Agent at one point, but she got nerfed to the ground. There is just no single reason to play her, as other Controller Agents offer pretty much the same utility, but in much more efficient fashion. Moreover, she is kind of hard to pilot, and many low-ranked players just find her difficult to use, which also explains such a low pick rate. | © Riot Games
Breach has super strong abilities in general, but they are more of tools to help your teammates than yourself, which is a big downside, especially since most players choose to solo queue. Playing Breach in a low-ranked queue is a disaster, and you pretty much have a dead Agent with abilities that your team can't gain any advantage from. However, we think that if you enjoy playing 4 or 5-stacks, Breach could be a real deal for an Initiator pick. | © Riot Games
Neon is actually a decent Agent, but she has strong competition in her class (Duelist). Even Shroud at one point said that she is "fun, but awful", and well, there is some true in that. If Jett or Reyna wouldn't exist, then yeah, maybe she could make it. | © Riot Games
Yoru is basically a same story as Neon, but there is also one more aspect – he is pretty hard to pilot. And even if you know how to pilot Yoru, he simply doesn't work at lower ranks, mostly because high rank players know how to play around his abilities. However, he is not really that bad of a pick when you are smurfing, because that's where players make big mistakes when trying to counter Yoru's ability kit. | © Riot Games
Cypher is another Agent that is hard to get value from in the solo queue. He is definitely not as powerful and versatile as the other Sentinel Agents; not even close to Killjoy or Sage. It's also easy to counter-play his abilities, and everybody knows how to do it; after all, he's been in the game since beta. | © Riot Games
Today, we will look at 5 Valorant Agents, who are not only weak in terms of power level, but are also not very interesting, making players choose not to pick them at all in their Competitive Games.
