Valorant: New Agent Astra Ability Kit Unveiled


valiant gets a new agent for his next act, and his name is Astra. Riot Games revealed on Sunday Astra’s Ability Kit, which is packed with cosmic powers, along with a few familiar effects.

Astra’s kit is all about placing stars on the map. Stars are small, disposable projectiles that Astra can use to create different effects. To place a star, Astra must change to her astral form, with which she can place them anywhere on the map.

Once a star is down, Astra can activate it along with her other abilities to give it certain effects. One effect causes a concussion explosion in a small area around the star, leaving enemies stunned after it explodes. Another creates a small cloud of smoke, much like a remotely activated smoke grenade. Another of its abilities, Gravity Well, briefly draws nearby players before it explodes and gives them a debuff that causes them to take more damage.

Astra can also pick up her stars with an ability called Dispel. When picked up, the stars briefly form a false cloud of smoke, which Astra can use to deceive enemies.

Finally, Astra’s ultimate ability allows him to erect a massive wall anywhere on the map, cutting the whole thing in half with a barrier separating one part from the other. Players can go through the wall, but not the balls, and the sound is strongly attenuated from side to side.

Astra is slated for release on March 2 with the start of valiant Episode 2, Act 2. Until then, here’s a full list of his abilities:

C – Gravity well

Place the stars in astral form (X)

Activate a star to form a gravity well. Players in the area are drawn to the center before it explodes, making all players still trapped inside Fragile.

Q – Nova Pulse

Place the stars in astral form (X)

Activate a star to detonate a Nova Pulse. The Nova Pulse charges briefly then strikes, causing a commotion among all players in its area.

E – Nebula

Place the stars in astral form (X)

Activate a star to turn it into a nebula (smoke).

F – Dispel

Use (F) on a star to dispel it, returning the star to a new location after a certain delay.

Dispelling briefly forms a false nebula at the star’s location before returning.

X – Astral form / Cosmic split

Activate to enter astral form where you can place stars with primary fire. Stars can be reactivated later, turning them into Nova Pulses, Nebulas, or Gravity Wells.

When Cosmic Divide is charged, use secondary fire in astral form to start aiming at it, then primary fire to select two locations. An Infinity Cosmic Divide connects the two points you select. Cosmic Divide blocks balls and strongly dampens sound.
