Sidearms are generally reserved for eco rounds, but they can deal a considerable amount of damage in certain situations. The Ghost and Sheriff are the two strongest sidearms and can each inflict over 100 damage with a headshot.

SMGs

Spectre

Submachine guns are a cheap alternative to rifles. They can be bought immediately after a pistol round or on a force buy. The Spectre, in particular, does a good amount of damage. At close range, it can easily take out opponents.

Shotguns

Judge
Valorant News

Shotguns are typically used in a force buy scenario when things are looking bleak. At close range, they deal deadly damage. The Judge can mow down several enemies. At long range, though, they leave much to be desired.

Rifles

Vandal
Valorant News

Rifles are generally considered the best guns in the game. The Bulldog, Guardian, Phantom, and Vandal can each take out an enemy with just a shot or two. The Phantom and Vandal, though, stand out in terms of damage and consistency.

Snipers

Snipers can inflict the most damage in the game. The Operator is a powerful gun and should never be underestimated at long range. It’s expensive, though, and can be a risky buy.

Heavy

Odin
Valorant News

Heavy guns are bullet hoses. They take some time to ramp up, but once they get going, they have the potential to kill multiple enemies. They’re not accurate but their large ammo clips mean they don’t have to be.
