Everything you need to know about Valorant New Agent Neon
Neon will be available with Valorant Episode 4: Disruption on 11th January 2021
Riot Games revealed an early peek at the Valorant universe's newest 18th agent, Neon, who is set to debut in the coming week. Neon appears to be all about speed while also possessing the power of electricity, which will aid her in outpacing all of the game's foes.
Neon's first ability is called 'High Gear' which lets her sprint and slide every round and can be refilled if she managed to get two kills in that particular round. She also has the power to produce two lengthy, static electrical barriers on each side of herself, as well as a grenade that can concuss opponents in two locations at once.
Her Ultimate Ability is called 'Overdrive' which allows her to focus her electric energies into a concentrated beam for a short period of time that can hurt enemies.
With all of her speed, she also seems to be an agent added into the game to counteract one of the game's most popular speedy agents, Jett.
Neon Full Set of Abilities:
- E — Instantly channel Neon’s power for increased speed. When charged, use Alt Fire to trigger an electric slide. Slide charge resets after two kills.
- Q — Instantly throw an energy bolt that bounces once. Upon hitting each surface, the bolt electrifies the ground below with a concussive blast.
- C — Fire two energy lines forward on the ground that extend a short distance or until they hit a surface. The lines rise into walls of static electricity that block vision and damage enemies passing through them.
- X — Unleash Neon’s full power and speed for a short duration. Fire to channel the power into deadly a lightning beam with high movement accuracy. The duration resets on each kill.
