Is Chamber the main agent in Valorant Masters?

Chamber players come to Valorant Masters with some of the biggest impacts in the game, but some players and trainers don’t believe the agent is that important in the professional meta and tournament.

Chamber is Valorant’s second newest agent and wasn’t seen on the international stage until Valorant Champions Tour Stage 1 Masters: Reykjavík.

Chamber players from around the world also come to the event with some incredible stats. DRX’s Yu ‘BuZz’ Byung-chul has some of the best numbers on Chamberwho comes into the event with the agent with a K/D ratio of 1.50 and a first kill to death ratio of 1.34.

Joining BuZz as Chamber Champion in Iceland are OpTic Gaming’s Jaccob ‘yay’ Whiteaker, Team Liquid’s Elias ‘Jamppi’ Olkkonen and The Guard’s Michael ‘neT’ Bernet. Chamber has also been played on every map in Valorant Masters – with Xerxia being the only team not to pick the Deadeye.

What the pros think of Chamber at Valorant Masters

KRÜ Esports’ Keznit says Killjoy is a better agent in the pro meta than Chamber.

Professional players and coaches appear to be divided on the agent and its importance in the VCT meta. The chamber isn’t worth picking if the teams leave other or better agent picks on the table, said KRÜ Esports’ Angelo ‘keznit’ Mori.

“Chamber’s broken, but I don’t think you have to sacrifice that much for so little because he only has one operator and one pocket sheriff,” he said.

“It really depends on the skills of each individual player. I don’t think it’s such an important character that you have to sacrifice everything for it.”

For Ninjas in Pajamas duelist Alexandre ‘xand’ Zizi, teams don’t need a dedicated Chamber player to compete at the highest level because “they can still have other agents as strong as Chamber.”

But the strongest opposition voice for Chamber was Fnatic head coach Jacob “mini” Harris. In a press conference after the Masters game, the British manager called the agent “flashy” and not as strong as people are likely to think.

“I think it’s really good when you really think about it, but it seems like a lot of teams are defaulting to it at the moment just because it’s a flashy agent that can get a free kill and run away like that, but I I don’t think it’s so important to be completely honest,” Mini said. “I think it’s almost quite lazy at times the way some people play it.”

BuZz is one of the best chambers in the world.

The most measured reaction to Chamber at the VALORANT Masters came from Paper Rex’s trainer, Alexandre ‘alecks’ Salle, who said Chamber fills a need for many teams in the current meta.

Teams with multiple great goals or individual talents shoved into a square hole with support or flex agents can use Chamber as another duelist, according to alecks.

“It’s basically a second Duelist and all of these teams already have a really good Duelist and then there’s a second guy that’s forced not to play Jett because they’re behind a madman,” alecks said. “This guy will only play Chamber”

Alecks pointed to DRX as an example of this, as BuZz had previously played Jett for the team while Flex player Goo ‘Rb’ Sang-min was relegated to Sova and Sage. Now BuZz can play Chamber and get the same effect while Rb can run around as Jett and play aggressively. Another example is OpTic, with yay on Chamber Victor ‘Victor’ Wong freed to play more Duelists like Neon and Raze.

As VALORANT Masters progresses, Chamber and the meta may continue to evolve to the point where the Agent is either a crutch for teams or a focus of the meta.
