Fade’s presentation and skills

The official animated preview of a new character in Valorant that’s “better not to meet at night”, has just been released on Riot’s official YouTube channel. It is Fade who sees through the walls. Here you can see how she dealt with the entire team of Agents in Istanbul, Turkey’s largest city, on her own:


Additionally, there is also a short snippet showing her skills directly in the game:


At his disposal, Fade has creatures straight from the nightmare that reveal the positions of the enemies. The ultimate also helps in finding them:

  • Haunt (E) — Equip a nightmarish entity. FIRE to throw the orb which will plummet to the ground after a set amount of time. Upon hitting the ground, the orb will turn into a nightmarish entity that will reveal the location of enemies caught in its line of sight. Enemies can destroy this entity. RE-USE the ability to drop the projectile early in-flight.

  • Seize (Q) — Equip an orb of nightmare ink. FIRE to throw the orb which will plummet to the ground after a set amount of time. Upon hitting the ground, the ink will explode and create a zone in which enemies who are caught in it cannot escape the zone by normal means. RE-USE the ability to drop the projectile early in-flight

  • Prowler (C) — EQUIP a Prowler. FIRE will send the Prowler out, causing it to travel in a straight line. The Prowler will lock onto any enemies or trails in their frontal vision cone and chase them, nearsighting them if it reaches them. HOLD the FIRE button to steer the Prowler in the direction of your crosshair.

  • Ultimate Ability – Nightfall — EQUIP the power of Fear. FIRE to send out a wave of nightmare energy that can traverse through walls. The energy creates a trail to the opponent as well as deafens and decays them.

Release date

At the moment, the exact date of her release is not known yet. However, it turns out that she may enter the game soon. This is suggested by the posters promoting Valorant in Turkey.

Additionally, the current act in Valorant ends tomorrow. Its launch is a good opportunity to introduce a new character. It will start on April 26 – on Tuesday.

In preparation for the new act, there were some interesting announcements on Valorant’s official Twitter account, and the main esports tournament, VCT Masters Stage 1, was also about fear.
