Valorant: new Agent Astra’s ability kit revealed

Valorant is getting a brand-new representative for its approaching Act, and her name is Astra. Riot Games exposed Astra’s capability set on Sunday, and it’s full of cosmic powers, along with a couple of familiar impacts.

Astra’s set mainly focuses on positioning Stars around the map. Stars are little throwable projectiles, which Astra can utilize to develop various impacts. To position a Star, Astra needs to move into her Celestial Type, with which she can position them anywhere on the map.

As Soon As a Star is down, Astra can trigger it with her other capabilities to provide it particular impacts. One impact makes a concussive blast in a little location around the star, leaving opponents stunned after it blows up. Another produces a little smoke cloud, sort of like a remote-activated smoke grenade. Another of her capabilities, Gravity Well, briefly draws in neighboring gamers prior to taking off and providing a debuff that triggers them to take more damage.

Astra can likewise get her Stars with a capability called Dissipate. When gotten, the stars briefly form a phony smoke cloud, which Astra can utilize to deceive her opponents.

Lastly, Astra’s Ultimate capability enables her to set up an enormous wall anywhere on the map, cutting the whole thing in 2 with a barrier separating one part from the other. Gamers can move through the wall, however bullets can’t, and audio is greatly damped from one side to the other.
