Yoru, all the abilities of the new Valorant character
Yoru’s possibilities make him an agile character, who can flee or move to locations faster than other agents. In the C key, we find Fakeout, an ability that allows you to confuse the enemy through sound. Throws an echo forward that reproduces the effect of footsteps. On the other hand, with the E he teleports to other positions thanks to Gatecrash, a rift link that he can place to travel with each other.
The agent can also take effect on other enemies thanks to Blindside, the ability of the Q key. Basically, we are talking about a blinding grenade, only that Yuri tears a fragment of reality to launch it into the world. The flash fires after being pulled as soon as it hits a hard surface. The last action may be the most potent of the four. When pressing the X key we will use Dimensional Drift, a mask that when equipped makes it invisible and invulnerable for a few seconds.
“The idea of a ‘stealth infiltration’ is something we’ve explored for years, but it had never really fitted into the game. We felt that if we started something from scratch, we could create an agent that would revolve around that idea in some way, ”
explains John Goscicki.
Valorant product lead. Yoru will land in the competitive Riot Games the first-person shooter at the start of Episode 2 Act 1, which is scheduled to start on January 12. It will run until March 1 with a brand new Battle Pass, 12 weapon skins, 1 melee weapon skin, and more cosmetics.
