All Valorant Guns (+Shop Details)

Beginner’s Guide to Valorant Weapons

Valorant has a buy phase at the beginning of each round, similar to CS:GO.

Every agent has access to the same guns and shields in their shop.

There are currently seventeen total guns in Valorant. There are five sidearms, two SMGs, two shotguns, four rifles, two snipers, and two heavy machine guns.

There are two type of armor shields: light shields and heavy shields.

Players also begin with a knife that allows you to run faster than with a gun.

Agent Inventory and Shop Mechanics

Every agent has a primary weapon slot (rifles, SMGs, shotguns, snipers, and heavy machine guns), a secondary sidearm slot, and a knife.

During the buy phase, players can sell their sidearm or primary, request a teammate to buy a gun for them if they’re low on funds, announce that they have extra funds to purchase for a teammate, or tell their team to save their money for the round.

Valorant Gun Characteristics

Guns vary in terms of:

  • Primary and alt fire settings
  • Damage output (based on head/body/legs)
  • Magazine capacity
  • Recoil pattern
  • Ability to pierce through walls

SMGs are ideal for short to mid range engagements. You can auto from hip at close range but you’ll need to look down sites and burst fire for longer range.

The same-price competitor with the Phantom that has slightly less firing rate but more damage output.

A close equivalent to the AK-47 of CS:GO.

Valorant’s AWP, the OP is worth its price if you have solid aim as it will automatically kill with head or body shots.

Heavy

Heavy machine guns provide a lot of sustained firepower in exchange for loss of accuracy. They also excel at killing through walls with high penetration.

Ares (1600)

A premium version of Ares with more control but can still have similar faults if used improperly. Can singlehandedly stop multi-enemy pushes on defense.
