Meet Astra, the newest agent coming to Valorant

Valorant's newest agent has a lot of tricks up here sleeve!

Riot Games has finally revealed the newest agent coming to Valorant, and her name is Astra, a Ghanaian agent with the power to harness the energies of the cosmos to reshape the battlefield. Given her astral powers, Astra is a powerful Controller that can give her team plenty of openings to win a match.

Specifically, Astra’s gameplay revolves around her placing starts throughout the map. The Stars are throwable items that can only be placed when in Astral form. Once placed, these Stars can then be activated to either trap/stun enemies or deploy smoke cover.

Here is a rundown of Astra’s abilities:

  • C: GRAVITY WELL
    • Place Stars in Astral Form (X)
    • ACTIVATE a Star to form a Gravity Well. Players in the area are pulled toward the center before it explodes, making all players still trapped inside fragile.
  • Q: NOVA PULSE
    • Place Stars in Astral Form (X)
    • ACTIVATE a Star to detonate a Nova Pulse. The Nova Pulse charges briefly then strikes, concussing all players in its area.
  • E: NEBULA
    • Place Stars in Astral Form (X)
    • ACTIVATE a Star to transform it into a Nebula (smoke).
  • F: DISSIPATE
    • Use (F) on a Star to Dissipate it, returning the star to be placed in a new location after a delay.
    • Dissipate briefly forms a fake Nebula at the Star’s location before returning.
  • X: ASTRAL FORM / COSMIC DIVIDE
    • ACTIVATE to enter Astral Form where you can place Stars with PRIMARY FIRE. Stars can be reactivated later, transforming them into a Nova Pulse, Nebula, or Gravity Well.
    • When Cosmic Divide is charged, use SECONDARY FIRE in Astral Form to begin aiming it, then PRIMARY FIRE to select two locations. An infinite Cosmic Divide connects the two points you select. Cosmic Divide blocks bullets and heavily dampens audio.

Astra releases on March 2 during the start of Valorant Episode 2, Act 2.
