In a new cinematic teaser released today, fans received their first thorough glimpse at Neon, which revealed her personality and fascinating new skills. Neon is a Filipino agent that is adept at outsmarting and outgunning her opponents. She can sprint past attackers and even slide to get away from gunfights, according to the trailer.
Wait is Over ! Meet the Newest Entry in Valorant Protocol: NEON Agent Trailer
Neon is the first character of such descent, hailing from the Philippines. Her kit is influenced by the character’s fascination with speed and motion. We see the use skills that allow her to move quickly and stun enemies with electricity in the trailer. Neon is also able to slide, which is a first for any Valorant Agent. Neon appears to be a good fit for players that value mobility and prefer to be the first to act in combat.
NEON’s skills, according to the trailer, will include:
- Putting a slide altogether
- Getting across the map quickly
- An electrically charged grenade is launched.
- constructing a double-sided electrical wall with a lane running through the center
- Using an electrical beam to shock enemies
The last one mentioned is Neon’s ultimate power it seems. It appears to be an electric ability that enables her to fire electricity from her fingers. Although it is unknown how much damage this deals, it appears to be a deadly ability that may easily win gunfights.
