Valorant Agent Guide: Cyper

Valorant Agent Guide: Cyper

Cypher is a strong Sentinel agent in the game. Coming from Morocco, his abilities mainly focus on getting intel on enemies and their locations. His abilities reveal enemy players and even crowd control them. He?s also heavily picked and loved by most pro players and his skillset and difficulty earn him a spot at tier A in the agent tier list. But most claim that Cypher is worthy to be in Tier S alongside sage.

Ability guide

Trapwire (C)

  • Place a Trapwire on a vertical or a horizontal surface. This trap triggers when an enemy steps trough it and it tethers, reveals, and even stuns the enemy dealing a small damage if the trap isn?t destroyed in time. These traps can be used defensively to interrupt and slow down enemy sieges or be aware of enemy flanks. A maximum of 2 charges can be carried per round and unused traps can be picked up to be reused.
  • Type: Basic ability
  • Cost: 200 Creds

Cyber Cage (Q)

  • Toss a cage that can be triggered at any time of the game from distant and even through walls. The cage acts as a screen that blocks enemies? vision and can be used in many ways. Enemies who step inside the trap are slowed and can be used to cover up your team while sieges. 2 chargers can be carried per round and the cages cant be picked up, unlike Cypher?s other abilities.
  • Type: Basic ability
  • Cost: 100 Creds

Spycam (E)

  • Mount a camera to a mountable surface to use to view that area during the match. Pressing the same ability key opens up the mounted camera and a dart can be fired at an enemy which reveals them periodically until the dart is removed. The camera remains invisible until it is equipped and it can be destroyed by enemies. You only get 1 free charge and it can be picked up at any time to place it in a different spot. The ability has a 45-seconds cooldown if the camera gets destroyed.
  • Type: Signature ability
  • Cost: Free

Neural Theft (X)

  • Use a fresh corpse of an enemy to cast this ability and after a brief delay, it reveals the positions of all enemies throughout the map at once.
  • Type: Ultimate
  • Cost: 7 points

Tips and tricks

Cypher seems like a basic agent but he is very complicated in the gameplay. His abilities might seem a little inconvenient on paper, but they are really useful in reality. Cypher gathers very valuable intel about enemy locations and paths, and this alone makes him an ?almost S tier? agent. Following are some helpful tips and tricks you definitely should try out next time you are playing Cypher;

  • Cypher?s traps play a huge role in a team?s defense. However, these traps can also be dodged by just jumping over them if they are not placed properly. So when placing traps, make sure they can?t be jumped over.
  • Cyber Cage not only covers the vision of enemies or allies but also slows them. Use the cage?s slowing and your traps? slowing together to move towards and pick off enemies more efficiently or to move away from them.
  • The ultimate might seem a little useless at points but can come out really handy when you are clutching or your enemy is trying for a clutch. Don?t be greedy to use your ultimate when needed but also don?t waste it unnecessarily.
  • Use your buy time effectively and efficiently to lay-out traps and other abilities to meet your team?s strategy. The camera is really good at spotting enemy flanks so be sure to place it properly and use it regularly.
