Valorant’s closed beta consists of five characters known as Agents. They are unlocked for every player who starts the game. Those Agents are free. They include Sage, Phoenix, Sova, Jett, and Brimstone. Aside from that, there are another five Agents that are locked away and need players to earn them. The sad news is that the game does not tell you exactly what you have to do in order to get the access to these characters. In this case, here are all the ways you are able to unlock new Agents such as Viper, Cypher, Omen, Raze, and Breach in the Valorant beta.
The first one is unlock two Agents when leveling up. During the beta, you are able to unlock two Agents completely for free. All that you have to do is to play a few games. When you log in for the first time, you will have a mission that needs you to earn levels. There will be a progress bar located at the bottom of your screen on the Latest tab in the main menu that will show you how much XP you have to gain. You will be able to see 10 levels and a new Agent that can be chosen at Level 5 and again at Level 10. Everything depends on how well you do in every match. People stated that reaching Level 10 takes somewhere between three and five hours.
The second one is earning more Agents through contracts. You are able to activate Contracts on the Agent screen in the Collection tab of the main menu. The Contract for every Agent needs you to gain a particular amount of XP by playing the game. This XP is able to be gained by playing any of the other characters in the game. Every level can unlock different cosmetic items, and at level five you unlock the Agent themselves.
Please keep in mind that you are able to only have a Contract open at a time. However, if you switch Contracts partway through, you will not lose any of the progress you gained when you switch back. For those who are in hurry and do not want to level up your Contracts by gaining XP, you are also able to just pay in order to unlock the levels. Every level costs 200 Valorant Points to unlock. It means you will need 1,000 or about $10 if you want to buy five levels and unlock the Agent.
