The game has undergone many changes, where agents and guns have gone under significant changes to make the whole game more balanced.
New players often come across situations where they get confused about picking the right weapon for the current situation. In this blog, we will brief you about the best guns in valorant for every situation. Weapon choices differ according to our individual game style, whether we enjoy taking close-quarter engagements or taking out an enemy in a sneaky way.
The Valorant gun tier list is divided into 3 lists, Tier 1,2, & 3 respectively. In general, the weapon tier list focuses more on how versatile a weapon is for all situations and providing maximum value.

- Ghost: A perfect sidearm for pistol rounds. Just 1 bullet on the head without armor, all it takes to knock down your opponent. Above all, the ghost is a quite accurate and efficient weapon for eco rounds.
- Operator: The sniper Rifle may be a bit costlier when it comes to the team’s economy. However, the value that an Operator can provide for that amount is huge. The operator could turn out to be a nightmare for some opponents if given into the right hands because of its one-shot kill anywhere in the body.

Lastly, the list of weapons rarely gets used in games. You gonna need to be more creative to get value from these weapons.
- Guardian: Semi-auto rifle that can snipe off the enemy with a single headshot. However, due to its high price and if you miss the headshot mark the weapon is useless in most situations.
- Judge: Shotguns are always flashy and fun to play. When it comes to competitive matchmaking, you won’t get many chances to make your way through with Judge. Opponents can predict the spots and likely to engage in long-range. Although, agents like Jett can make some insane plays with the gun.
- Marshal: A highly accurate sniper to hold enemies at long range. Not many players prefer to use marshal in force buys as there is a better alternative in the price range.
- Ares: The LMG is actually good in holding off some line of sights but spectre just gives you more mobility to adapt in any situation regardless of Ares high penetration rate.
- Classic: At last, the classic pistol that you get for free in every round. There isn’t much about classic as the burst mode is useful in close combat.
