You automatically have 5 agents available; here's how to unlock the remaining 5 agents.
As soon as you enter the Valorant closed beta, you have access to Phoenix, Sage, Sova, Brimstone, and Jett.
How to get your first 2 agent unlocks
After playing just a handful of games, you'll hit beta level 5, which will allow you to unlock your first choice of Raze, Cypher, Breach, Viper or Omen. At level 10, you will be presented with this choice again to get your 7th agent.
How to get the remaining 3 agents
Getting the remaining agents is oddly not quite as intuitive as the first 2 unlocks. Personally I had to click around in the menus and do a bit of Googling to figure it out. Luckily, the actual method is fairly simple:
From the main menu, click "COLLECTION" and then "AGENTS" just below it to view your locked and unlocked agents.
Click on the locked agent that you wish to unlock. Then, click "ACTIVATE" at the bottom of their picture, which will activate the contract for that agent. Then, press "VIEW CONTRACT" in the bottom right corner.
Now you are looking at the contract for the agent. Notice at level 5 (out of 10), you actually unlock the agent. You earn XP for leveling simply through playing games with any agent.
Step 4 (optional)
It does take a fair amount of games to get any agent contract to level 5.
So, if you're eager for your 8th, 9th, and 10th agents, you can pay to unlock contract levels. It costs 200 Valorant points (about $2 USD) per level, so to get from level 1 to 5, it would cost you 1000 points (about $10 USD). Again, this is optional, as it is possible to grind games to unlock all 10 current agents.
I hope this was helpful in your quest to unlock more Valorant agents. Good luck and have fun out there!
