Valorant Fade abilities
Here are all of new agent Fade’s abilities and what they can do:
- Haunt (E) – Throw an orb that plummets to the ground after a little, where it turns into a nightmarish entity that can reveal player locations.
- Seize (Q) – This orb hits the ground with an explosion of nightmare ink that traps enemies for a time.
- Prowler (C) – Fire sends the Prowler out in a straight line, where it will chase enemies it spots and nearsights them if it reaches them. Holding the fire button steers the Prowler towards your crosshair.
- Nightfall (X) – The power of Fear. Send out a wave of nightmare energy, which even goes through walls. The energy reveals opponents as well as deafening and decaying them.
