Riot Games (League of Legends) has debuted the Jett reveal trailer, which gives you a look at the agent in the highly-anticipated tactical shooter video game Valorant. The 5v5 game is scheduled to arrive this summer.
Jett is one of eight characters announced so far. The line-up also includes Brimstone, Cypher, Omen, Phoenix, Sage, Sova and Viper. Jett’s agile and evasive fighting style lets her take risks no one else can. She runs circles around every skirmish, cutting enemies up before they even know what hit them.
CLOUDBURST – Throw out a cloud of fog that obscures vision on impact. Hold down the ability button to bend the cloud’s in-flight trajectory.
UPDRAFT - After a brief wind up, propel yourself upwards.
TAILWIND – Immediately dash a short distance in the direction you’re moving.
BLADE STORM - Arm yourself with several deadly throwing knives that deal moderate damage and kill on headshots. Scoring a kill restores all daggers. Left click throws a single dagger. Right click throws all remaining daggers in a short-ranged burst.
