Valorant players frustrated with lack of buffs for Harbor and Deadlock agents
Valorant players are expressing frustration over the absence of buffs for Harbor and Deadlock, two of the FPS game's lowest-performing agents and frequent picks in the competitive scene. Both agents have low pick and win rates, leading to player frustration as they believe buffs are needed to elevate them to a more viable level.
In the most recent update for Valorant, content for the recently-released Agent Zero and Agent Blackwatch was given the spotlight, but players are disappointed that improvements for Harbor and Deadlock – the two lowest-performing agents – were not included. Both agents have low win rates, suggesting they struggle to contribute to victories, and Harbor's pick rate of 15.09% is the lowest in the game.
"Harbor's pick rate and win rate are absolutely embarrassing," one player comments. "I'm not even mad, I'm just disappointed." Others argue that Harbor's abilities are underwhelming and in need of a change, while others say Deadlock's kit is weak and in need of buffs.
"Deadlock has been the laughing stock of the Valorant community for a long time now," another player says. "Even players who main them feel ashamed." Fans suggest potential changes to enhance their effectiveness, and the lack of attention given to these agents has sparked conversation within the community.
