Take a look at the full set of abilities down below:
- Equip and Fire an Orb which will stay in the air for a max of 1.5s, and then slam to the ground. When the orb hits the ground Enemies within the radius will be tethered, and will take damage and be deafened.
- 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 creature that can follow trails OR be controlled by moving your mouse. Upon reaching an enemy, they will be Nearsighted for 3s. Only 1 Creature per Trail.
- Send out a wave of dark mist. If the mist hits an enemy, they will be Deafened, Trailed, and Decayed.
Leaks have also revealed more details about the new agent and how their equipment would function. The game files have recently been updated to include the codename BountyHunter, as well as new default totems that function similarly to Skye’s wolf. It’s unknown whether or not the new agent will summon anything, but it’ll almost certainly go after a specific agent or character. Valorant Newest Agent Abilities
