Valorant has officially released the latest agent to the game, Astra, ahead of the newest episode launch of the game. However Astra won't be fully available to use in-game until March 2.
According to her bio, Astra is a Controller from Ghana. She “harnesses the energies of the cosmos to reshape battlefields to her whim. With full command of her astral form and a talent for deep strategic foresight, she’s always eons ahead of her enemy’s next move”.
Astra abilities in Valorant
Astra has four main abilities, and an ultimate ability.
The Gravity Well will pull players within the area toward the center before it explodes. Any player trapped inside will become fragile.
When the Nova Pulse is placed, it will charge briefly before detonating. When it goes off, it will concuss all player within the area.
This is Astra's signature ability, and it's essentially just her smoke. You simply place a star, and then activate it to transform it into a Nebula.
When you dissipate a star, it allows it to be placed in a new location.
Ultimate: Astral Form/Cosmic Divide
Activate to enter Astral Form where you can place stars with primary fire. Stars can be reactivated later, transforming them into a Nova Pulse, Nebula, or Gravity Well.
When cosmic divide is charged, use secondary fire in astral form to begin aiming it, then primary fire to select two locations. An infinite cosmic divide connects the two points you select. Cosmic divide blocks bullets and heavily dampens audio.
