Riot Games has unveiled Jett as the latest Agent for their upcoming first-person shooter, VALORANT. Jett has been debuted in the latest trailer released to the VALORANT Twitter account.
Jett is based out of Korea and looks to have some of the more interesting abilities we’ve seen thus far in terms of mobility. While Jett’s cloudburst is another way to obscure vision, she can also thrust herself upwards to reach positions without requiring a boost via Updraft or use Tailwind, her signature ability, to “dash a short distance in the direction” she’s moving.
Her ultimate ability wasn’t showcased in the trailer, but it drew a lot of attention in an earlier video and reading the description below the video should tell you why.
Jett’s abilities are as follows:
- Cloudburst: Throw out a cloud of fog that obscures vision on impact. Hold down the ability button to bend the cloud’s in-flight trajectory.
- Updraft: After a brief wind up, propel yourself upwards.
- Signature Ability – Tailwind: Immediately dash a short distance in the direction you’re moving.
- Ultimate Ability – Blade Storm: Arm yourself with several deadly throwing knives that deal moderate damage and kill on headshots. Scoring a kill restores all daggers. Left click throws a single dagger. Right click throws all remaining daggers in a short-ranged burst.
The official closed beta is set to start on April 7th. Fans interested in playing the games beta can start attempting to get a key starting tomorrow. Details on how to do that can be found here.
