When Riot Games originally revealed the list of Valorant‘s Agents, only eight were announced. This list included Sova, Sage, Omen, Viper, Jett, Brimstone, Phoenix, and Cypher. While many thought Riot Games would add more to Valorant, this was thought to be the lineup heading into the closed beta. Though, after the early access streams and videos went live earlier today, we learned this wasn’t the case. A ninth legend has been added to the list, being the brute-force Agent Breach. Let’s take a look at this new Agent’s abilities.
Breach’s abilities revealed in Valorant
Described as an “Initiator,” Breach could be considered a tank-like character in Valorant. He has some devastating abilities that can deal serious damage to an entire enemy team. Though he doesn’t possess the traditional look of a tank, he’s probably the closest thing to one in Riot’s new FPS.
Thanks to 100 Thieves member Classify, we got an early look at Breach and his abilities. Here’s a full rundown of Breach straight from Valorant‘s early access version:
- Basic Ability – Aftershock: Equip a fusion charge. Fire the charge to set a slow-acting burst through the wall. The burst does heavy damage to anyone caught in the area.
- Basic Ability – Flashpoint: Equip a blinding charge. Fire the charge to set a fast-acting burst through the wall. The charge detonates to blind all players looking at it.
- Signature Ability – Fault Line: Equip a seismic blast. Hold Fire to increase the distance. Release to set off the quake, dazing all players in its zone.
- Ultimate Ability – Rolling Thunder: Equip a seismic charge. Fire to send a cascading wake through all terrain in a large cone. The quake dazes and knocks up anyone caught in it.
From the looks it, Breach will be an entry Agent in Valorant. His abilities can block off several lines of sight and also clear out multiple areas with Fault Line and Rolling Thunder. While he doesn’t appear to be the most agile Agent, that’s not what his abilities really promote. Breach should be one of the most popular Agents when the Valorant closed beta releases on April 7.
