Best VALORANT Sentinels for Lotus in 2023: All Sentinels Ranked From Best to Worst

This article will rank all the Sentinel Agents from best to worst for the Lotus map, so you can secure the most wins.

All Agents and Maps in VALORANT have unique features and backstories. Currently, there are 20 released Agents and 9 total maps in the game. Among them, Lotus is the latest addition to the current VALORANT map pool.

Each map in VALORANT features distinctive designs and architecture. Naturally, some Agents are more suited for specific maps than others. This is why it is important to choose specific Agents to ensure the highest chance of winning on selected maps. The same goes for Lotus.

Lotus is one of the most beautiful maps in VALORANT, located in India. It is the second map in Omega Earth after Pearl. The map features a 3-site layout similar to Haven. Additionally, Riot Games has added two rotating doors in the map, which is unique to the map.

This tier list was updated after patch 6.00 was released, based on the current VALORANT meta. We’ll keep updating the list with the meta changes and updates.

Best Sentinels for Lotus (A Complete Tier List)

Lotus was added to the VALORANT map pool in the 6.00 patch. It is the second map that is located on Omega Earth. What makes Lotus different from the other maps is the combination of a 3-site layout and small separated areas that heavily favor close-quarter battles.

As there are so many angles and tight spaces in Lotus, Sentinels specializing in holding multiple angles will generally prevail. With that in mind, we’ll now list all the Sentinels from best to worst. To keep the Sentinel tier list more accurate, we took the opinions of professional players and community input into account.

The list will contain each Agent’s tier standing, from S to B. Additionally, we’ll discuss the S and A-tier Agents and explain to you why you should pick them over others. So, whether you’re playing solo or with a team, this list of best Sentinels will help you get the most victories on Lotus.

S-Tier Sentinels


Cypher is undoubtedly the best Sentinel in the current VALORANT meta. Due to Chamber’s nerf and Cypher’s buff in the 5.10 patch, Cypher has become a force to be reckoned with.

As there are so many angles for both Attacker’s and Defender’s sides, it is almost impossible to watch every angle constantly. But thanks to Cypher’s utilities, his teammates can focus on attacking or defending rather than being always wary of random pushes.

Like Cypher, Killjoy is also a solid character in Lotus. With her Turret, she can cover a range of angles simultaneously, leaving her team worry-free for a while. If opponents decide to push her, she can deny or maybe kill them with her Alarmbot and Nanoswarms.

Her Lockdown ultimate ability is handy for pushing in retaking any site, considering how small the sites are in Lotus.


Although Sage was heavily nerfed in the 5.12 patch, she is one of the only two Agents who can heal her allies. Not to mention, only Sage can revive her allies from the dead. So, Sage is a must-pick if you have a team with no Phoenix, Reyna, or Skye. Even if you have these Agents, you can still use Sage to heal others.

Also, Sage’s Wall can be very useful to defend any site in Lotus. Moreover, her wall can be used to take boosts and make unexpected plays.

B-Tier Sentinels


Chamber was undoubtedly the best Agent in VALORANT the 5.12 nerf. However, he is not the same Agent anymore. Although he can hold each of the three sites by himself, he is pretty much useless out of a certain range. Maybe in the future, if Riot Games ever buff Chamber again, he can be the best Sentinel. However, for now, Chamber stays at the bottom of the tier list.

Final Verdict

Every Sentinel has unique and useful abilities in VALORANT. If utilized properly, any Agent can lead you to a foolproof win. However, some Agents are always preferred over others for particular maps. This Agent tier list on Lotus is based on the Agent’s abilities and how well they fitf with the map’s layout and structure. So try them out, and see what works for you best.
