With twelve agents in total to choose from, jumping into Agents of Mayhem’s intricate combat system may seem a bit confusing to some. How do you know which agent is the best for the job? And how do you make sure you have the right team when you go into a mission? In this article we’ll go over some of the best agents in Agents of Mayhem, how to find out which ones fit your playstyle, and more.

How to Find the Best Agent

All twelve of the agents in Agents of Mayhem have their own things to offer, and if you want to have the best team, you’re going to need to take a look at what you as a player enjoy doing, and then fix your squad up to match that style. For us, one of our favorite team combinations is Fortune, Rama, and Hardtack. Hardtack gives us all the close combat that we need, and his mines make for a great finale to any fight. Meanwhile, Fortune’s quick-moving attacks make her great for dealing with the more agile enemies, and Glory (her trusty robot sidekick) is great at shocking enemies and stunning them.

On the other side of things, Rama’s bow offers some great long-distance opportunities, and while she isn’t good for dealing with large groups of enemies up close, her Mayhem ability can deal with several enemies at once, thanks to its AOE effects. This setup works for us in most cases, though having Hollywood or another assault-based agent around definitely isn’t a bad idea.

Finding the best Team Composition is all about your playstyle. Try out several different agents, figure out which one works best for you, and then start building around that. Though, we definitely suggest having different types of agents. You’ll always want to make sure you have an agent that can work via close combat, as well as one that can work within long ranges as well. As for medium combat, it’s not that hard of a thing and most of your agents will be able to fill in that slot pretty easily.

The best agent all depends on who you like, and what playstyle you want to play with your team. So long as you’re having fun, that’s all that matters. Each agent can be utilized, and their abilities can be changed to fit your playstyle as best as possible.
