Riot Games has detailed what players can expect from Valorant Episode 3 Act 1, which will roll out on June 22 and will run until August 24.
New Agent: Kay/O
Kay/O is the next agent that’s coming to the multiplayer FPS. While the radiant-neutralizing machine was previously revealed in a recent trailer, here are his abilities in print:
EQUIP a suppression blade. FIRE to throw. The blade sticks to the first surface it hits, winds up, and suppresses anyone in the radius of the explosion.
EQUIP a flash grenade. FIRE to throw. The flash grenade explodes after a short fuse, blinding anyone in line of sight.
Riot adds that right-clicking the flashbang will result in Kay/O tossing a charged flash that only has to cook for one second. Left-clicking will result in a flashbang that takes 1.6 seconds to cook.
EQUIP an explosive fragment. FIRE to throw. The fragment sticks to the floor and explodes multiple times, dealing near lethal damage at the center with each explosion.
INSTANTLY overload with polarized radianite energy that empowers KAY/O and causes large energy pulses to emit from his location. Enemies hit with these pulses are suppressed for a short duration.
KAY/O also gets Combat Stim when overloaded. Additionally, if he’s killed while overloaded, he’ll enter a destabilized state; allies can stabilize it to revive him.
The next Valorant Battle Pass will cost 1,000 VP for its Premium version. You can expect Gun Buddies, cards, sprays, titles, and weapon skins in it.
Some of the free rewards include Jigsaw Ghost, the Greatly Increased? And Greatly Decreased? Sprays, The Key to Ancient Mysteries Buddy, and Snowbirds Card. On the premium side, you can find items like the K/TAC Vandal, K/TAC Melee, Jigsaw Bulldog, Monarch Bucky, Force Card, Save Card, Clutch or Kick Spray, and Salmon Nigiri Buddy
