  • Equip and Fire an Orb which will stay in the air and then hit the ground. Then it will go back into the air and turn into an eye. If Enemies get seen by the eye they will be revealed and a trail debuff is applied.

  • Send out a wave of dark mist. If the mist hits an enemy, they will be Deafened, Trailed, and Decayed.

With just two weeks to go until the agent is expected to release, fans will be excited to see how Riot Games shakes up the meta in Valorant Episode 4 Act III. Along with the new agent, we can also expect new skins and a brand new battle pass to go live in an upcoming content update.
