Deadlock is the latest addition to the agent roster in Valorant, a Sentinel with "an array of cutting-edge nanowire to secure the battlefield from even the most lethal assault." She will "stop you dead in your tracks and pull you in for a closer look." She has some deadly abilities to help the team clear the corners, stop the push, stun the enemies, and more.
While we haven't been able to play Deadlock as of now, looking at her abilities and understanding what they do, we have listed the best agents you can pair with her to get the best out of her.
Valorant: Best Agents To Use With Deadlock
Since every map has a different suitable composition, we have listed the agents below that will complement Deadlock's abilities in almost every situation.
Jett or Raze
Deadlock's GravNet (C) can slow down the enemy, and Jett or Raze can use that opportunity to rush them, or Raze can throw a nade to get an opening pick to secure the site if you are on the attacking side. The same thing can be done if you are on the defending side as well.
Killjoy and Deadlock's combo can be deadly in post plant situations. Her Sonic Sensor (Q) and GravNet (C) can be combined with Killjoy's Nanoswarm and Alarmbot. If an enemy sits to diffuse the spike, both of the Deadlock's abilities will slow enemies, and Sonic Sensor will also concuss the player, preventing them from escaping, and Killjoy can activate her Nanoswarm to kill them.
If you don't have Sonic Sensor, you can use Killjoy's Alarmbot in its place to get an alert without even coming in front of the enemies. A similar setup can be done at entry points of a site to gain some time from your teammates to rotate or maybe secure some kills as well.
Knowing the enemy's position is essential before you throw an ability, and Skye can help Deadlock do that exactly. In addition to this, her flash can be paired with her abilities like GravNet (E) to rush the enemies unless one of their teammates helps them, but most probably, they will be flashed as well.
Apart from this, when Skye flashes, Deadlock can open up her ultimate Annihilation (X) to pull the enemies, and if there is any teammate with them, they will not be able to break the cocoon as they are blinded, and it's almost guaranteed that the trapped enemy will die.
Deadlock's Barrier Mesh (E) will only stop players from rushing you, but their bullets can still cross the barrier. Viper can use her smokes to block their vision and buy time for the team. If you spray in smoke, who knows, you might catch someone, and since their HP will be low, they will die quickly. In addition to this, you can also combine her Snakebite with Deadlock's abilities for post plant situations.
