That time has rolled around again. Players are racing to complete their Battlepass and earn a higher rank as the latest Valorant Act is set to end in just a few days. With each new act, Riot delivers a new battle pass, cosmetics pack, and if we’re lucky, a new agent or map.
As Episode 4, Act 3 slowly approaches us, we got incredibly lucky this time around. new agent, fadehad an official gameplay reveal at the VCT Masters last night that, frankly, left most players foaming at the mouth.
As if Fade wasn’t enough to cheer players up, Riot also announced that the bundle for the start of the Act will be the RGX 11z Pro Skin Line. Yes, we’ve seen an RGX 11z Pro package before and we love it.
And, of course, we can expect a new battle pass with the new act, and has some incredibly cute cards and friends to look forward to. But first, let’s take a look at Fade.
Here are Fade’s abilities, and to see them in action, check out the video above.
- haunt (E) – Fire an orb that drops to the ground after a short time. When grounded, the orb reveals the location of any enemy it sees. Enemies can destroy the orb entity, but Fade can reuse it.
- Grab (Q) – Fire an orb that drops to the ground after a short time. When the orb hits the ground, a zone is formed that traps enemies. Fade can reuse this ability.
- Hunter (C) – Shoot to send the Prowler straight. The Prowler will lock onto any enemies it sees and chase after them. If you get to them, the enemy will be myopic.
- dusk (X) – Fire Nightfall to send a wave of energy through an area and through walls. This creates a trail to each enemy’s location as it decomposes and deafens them.
RGX 11z Pro Skin Line
Riot Games seems to have realized that players love the RGX 11z Pro skins so much that it’s releasing this second pack.
This pack essentially features other popular weapons with their own RGX skins, a butterfly knife called ‘Firefly’. Yoru’s Butterfly Comb and Recon Balisong have been incredibly popular melee weapons, so seeing one of the most beloved skinlines applied to the most favorite style of melee weapon is going to excite many players, myself included. Riot, take my money.
Episode 4 Act 3 Battle Pass
The Episode 4 Act 3 Battle Pass will cost 1,000 VP for the full shabang, or players can simply opt for the free version which includes the Ragna-Rock Out Buddy, Look Behind You Spray, UltraBright Torch Buddy, Yellows on Rails Player Card, and the Cobra Frenzy Coalition.
For those who pay for everything, you can expect Hue Shift skins for Specter, Shorty, Phantom and Bulldog, Coalition Cobra skins for Frenzy, Judge, Odin and Marshall, and .SYS skins for Bucky, Stinger, Sheriff and Vandal. There will also be a .SYS ax melee weapon at the end of the Battlepass.
As always, you can expect a dozen sprays that fuel the various memes we’ve all seen around various characters. There’s Sova being harassed by her team, Omen scaring Jett and Phoenix, and a spray that shows Raze distraught by the angel and devil on each of her shoulders.
The update will be released April 27, 2020, when the current law ends. Are you eager to experience Fade, or are you afraid to face it?
