Unlike other games, Riot Games' first-person shooting game Valorant relies heavily on its different agents, categorized into Controllers, Duelists, Sentinels, and Initiators. Since Valorant is a character-based tactical shooter game, every 20 agents have different abilities that, when combined, can be a key to winning a game.

If you're new to the game, chances are you still have yet to unlock agents since it requires a lot of playing time. But did you know that you can unlock Valorant agents in just a few clicks?

The fastest way to unlock agents in Valorant is by paying for them using Valorant Points (VP), since you don't need to play games or finish the daily and weekly missions.

If you don't know how to unlock agent contracts by using Valorant Points, here's a step-by-step guide:

  1. Purchase Valorant points on the upper left side of your home screen
  2. Click on the 'Agents' tab on the upper middle-right of the screen, and select the agent you want to unlock
  3. After selecting the agent's contract, click on the purchase icon on the lower left side to buy the agent. Make sure you click the agent's icon on the bottom part (tier 5) before clicking the purchase icon.

If you're new to the game and just created your account, there are only five agents that are available to play for free: Brimstone, Jett, Phoenix, Sage, and Sova. If you finish the 10-tier welcome contract, you can unlock two more agents.

Suppose you've unlocked all seven agents by finishing the welcome contract. In that case, you need around 13000 Valorant points, or 130 US dollars, to unlock the remaining agents since one agent usually costs 1000 Valorant Points or 200 points per tier.

Unlocking agents in Valorant does not mean you need to have the money to pay for it or the time to play many matches. One workaround in unlocking agents in Valorant is to unlock the agents' contracts until Tier 3 by playing, then paying the Tiers 4 and 5 for 200 Valorant points each to be able to play the agent.

As a guide, here are the required XP to unlock different tiers in an agent contract in Valorant:

Tier 1

20,000 XP

Tier 2

30,000 XP

Tier 3

40,000 XP

Tier 4

50,000 XP

Tier 5

60,000 XP


Since the required XP to finish the top three tiers is only 90,000 XP, you can easily finish it in a day or two, then just pay for the last two tiers. If you repeat this trick for several agents, you can unlock two agents for only 800 Valorant points.

Overall, you don't need to unlock all the agents in Valorant since few agents will do. Yes, all the available agents have unique abilities that are helpful to the team, but you only need to master the right agent.

How to Unlock agents in Valorant for free

If you don't want to spend money on the game, you can still unlock all the Valorant agents by playing matches and finishing the daily and weekly missions.

Before you play, make sure to do the following:

  1. Click on the 'Agents' tab that is on the left side of the 'play' icon
  2. Select the agent you wish to unlock, then click the activate button in the middle to start the contract
  3. Once you finish Tier 5, you can now play the agent, and you can choose a new agent contract to unlock.

Typically, it takes around 15-30 hours to unlock a single agent based on the experience points you earn per match. However, if you play every day and finish the daily missions, there's a high chance of unlocking agents much faster.
