VALORANT is one of the hottest tactical shooters on the market, and there’s no shortage of VALORANT content on Twitch. Choosing a streamer to watch can be a chore, though. The types of content people look for are varied. Are you looking for the most skilled player to watch and don’t care about how frustrated they can get?

Are you looking for a more calm, fun, relaxed player who isn’t necessarily around the top of the skill bracket? Are you looking for another combination? Here are the best VALORANT streamers to watch on Twitch.

Best VALORANT streamers on Twitch

Hiko

Spencer “Hiko” Martin is a former Counter-Strike professional player who also was the face of 100 Thieves’ VALORANT squad. Hiko led the fledgling esports team to their first VALORANT in the First Strike tournament and played alongside the team across several major tournaments. Although Hiko has retired from competitive play, he certainly still has the edge.

Hiko commands a large audience and isn’t necessarily the perfect streamer to watch if you’re interested in interacting with someone since messages can get lost in chat very easily. But if you want to watch the pinnacle of ranked—which Hiko would tell you isn’t that great compared to competitive play—he’s a great streamer to follow. Hiko is a very competitive person, and so are the people he plays with, namely Joshua “steel” Nissan. Expect that competitiveness to come out at times.

Michael “shroud” Grzesiek has been one of the best streamers for the game. The former Counter-Strike legend was what originally grew his audience and his stepping back into the competitive light has only added to his numbers.

While he does stream other titles than VALORANT, he is still one of the best to watch for his FPS experience and knowledge. If fans are looking to learn more about the game or watch a co-stream shroud’s Twitch is the place to be.

Seangares

Sean Gares is yet another former Counter-Strike professional player who turned to VALORANT, but Gares turned to the analyst desk and casting instead of playing. After a brief stint commentating CS:GO following his retirement from the esport, Gares moved to VALORANT.

Gares is brilliant in terms of the nuts and bolts of tactical shooters and is one of the best streamers to learn from. He plays in high-level ranked too. You’ll go for the gameplay but stay for the analysis. Few streamers are as knowledgeable and well-spoken as Gares.

Kyedae

Kyedae Shymko quickly rose as one of the most successful streamers in the VALORANT scene. Similar to other content creators, Kyedae frequently hosts watch parties, participates in tournament play, and often streams alongside other VALORANT pros or personalities.

Kyedae has been part of several esports organizations as a content creator, including Sentinels and most recently 100 Thieves. If you are looking to catch a dedicated VALROANT streamer with plenty of ties and knowledge about the pro scene, then Kyedae is a must-watch.

Tarik

Another VALORANT streamer who has taken Twitch by storm is retired Counter-Strike player Tarık Çelik. Tarik has been a staple in the VALORANT scene throughout 2022 with many of his VCT co-streams reaching hundreds of thousands of viewers and overtaking even the official VALORANT streams.

The former pro decided to go the way of streaming over competing in VALORANT and recently signed with VCT-partnered team Sentinels. As a content creator for one of the most successful VALORANT organizations currently in the scene Tarik’s channel is a great place to tune into for all the latest on the competitive scene. Tarik has also hosted various VALORANT events such as the Ludwig Tarik Invitational and other Sentinels-led competitions.

S0m

Sam “s0m” Oh is another former Counter-Strike player who successfully made the switch to Riot’s tactical shooter. S0m has had a lucrative career in VALORANT esports as both a content creator and player.

As a player, s0m helped NRG qualify for 2023 VALORANT Champions and most notably had a second-place finish in VCT 2023 Americas League, only falling behind Loud. On Twitch, s0m regularly streams high-level gameplay. Whether you are an avid esports fan or simply looking to improve at the game, s0m is a great creator to check out in 2024.

QuarterJade

QuarterJade is a member of OfflineTV and one of the most consistent VALORANT streamers on Twitch. In the past year, VALORANT made up over 40 percent of QuarterJade’s total stream time and it seems like the streamer isn’t quitting on the game yet.

While QuarterJade is an impressive VALORANT player, she also plays with a variety of friends from OfflineTV and beyond. If you are looking for both exciting gameplay and a content creator who collaborates, then QuarterJade is a great streamer to watch.
