Riot Games has released a gameplay reveal teaser of Jett, Valorant’s latest agent in their highly anticipated, first-person shooter.
Jett is an agile and evasive agent who hails from South Korea, and uses movement abilities to get the upper hand on enemy players. She also has a powerful ultimate ability that could make her the deadliest agent in all of Valorant.
Cloudburst — Throws out a cloud of fog that obscures vision on impact. Holding down the ability button will bend the cloud’s in-flight trajectory.
Updraft — After a brief wind up, propel the agent upwards.
Tailwind — Immediately dash a short distance in the direction Jett is moving to.
Blade Storm — Use throwing knives that deal moderate damage and kill on headshots. Storing a kill restores all daggers. Left-click throws a single dagger. Right-click throws all remaining daggers in a short-ranged burst. Throwing knives also remain accurate while Jett is moving.
From the gameplay trailer, Jett’s Tailwind looks like a powerful movement quite similar to Tracer’s Blink from Overwatch. Her vertical mobility with Upburst and her ability to obscure enemy vision with Cloudburst also looks extremely powerful, especially in a game with such a quick TTK.
Blade Storm wasn’t seen in the trailer but from the description, it sounds very powerful. Competitive, first-person shooters rarely give players the opportunity to be mobile, accurate, and one-shot all at the same time. Jett in the hands of an expert will likely lead to some insane plays.
