new initiating agent: fade
Fede joins the Valorant roster as an initiator, and like Sowa, Skye, Breach and K/O, he’s on the battlefield with a unique ability to reveal, tag, and near-sight enemies. Comes with. According to the lore of the game, she comes from Turkey and has the ability to dispel the fear of her enemy. You can watch the Fed’s reveal video attached below.
Fade: Abilities and Ultimate
Fade comes with a variety of capabilities that are perfect for an initiating agent. His The ability set can be viewed as a mix of the abilities of Breach, Sowa and Sky. Which lets him reveal nearby enemies, mark them with a mark, reduce their health points (HP), and watch them closely. You can check out the official gameplay Fade’s video before going over the details about each of his abilities below.
Now, starting with the primary ability, Hunt lets Fede reveal nearby enemies, hidden in corners, for himself as well as his teammates. It is similar to Sowa’s Recon Dart, although it only marks enemies once after unfolding. However, unlike Sowa’s ability, Hunt tags enemies with a trail that can follow them to locate Fed or any of his companions. The mark remains for a few seconds before deactivating.
Players can press E to equip the ability and then press the fire button (left mouse click) to fire it at a certain point. While the Hunt Orb is in the air, they can press E again to release it before their projectile. However, it is worth mentioning that enemies can destroy the ability by firing.
Coming to another, the seizure is essentially a Compulsive ability that prevents enemies from escaping from one place. With it, the Fed can throw “a ball of nightmare ink” that will explode when it hits the ground, creating a circular area. Enemies captured in this area will be marked with a mark and will not be able to exit the scope of the affected area until the ability is exhausted (no pun intended). Also, the opponent’s health will drop to 75 HP, and they will be temporarily deaf.
Players can equip the ability with the cue button and press the fire button to throw it. And much more haunted ability, they can quickly drop the Siege Orb to the ground by pressing Q again while the Orb is in the air.
The Prowler’s ability gives Fed a group of prey creatures, like Skye’s Tasmanian tiger, to hunt nearby enemies. Once an enemy is struck by a prowler, they become near-sighted, as does the omen due to their flash.
Now, once a prowler is deployed, players can hold their fire button to guide the creature in different directions and turn. Once the Predator sees the enemy, however, players can release the fire button and the creature automatically attacks the enemy. Also, once an enemy is marked by any of the above abilities (or last), hunters can follow the mark to automatically track down the enemy.
Fed can use up to two Prowlers in a single round and can destroy enemy Prowlers with their guns before they can see them.
Nightfall (X – Ultimate)
In the end, the Fed’s ultimate capability is similar to the rolling thunder of the breach in terms of nightfall site coverage. However, instead of focusing on enemies, those caught in the last of the fade are near-sighted, marked with a scar, and decay to 75 HP for a short period of time.
After the final, players can combine other abilities of the Fed to completely disable enemies. In this way, players can clear the entire site to take over or retake after the enemy team has placed the spike.
