The Valorant Episode 2 Act 2 update has been released, introducing a new agent in Valorant, Astra. Similar to Omen, Viper, and Brimstone, Astra is a controller in Valorant. Riot Games officially revealed Astra's capabilities on Sunday, and it is clear that he is the best Valorant controller to date.
In this post, we've mentioned everything you need to know about Astra, so it's easier for you to play with the new Valorant agent.
VALORANT’s New Agent ‘Astra’ Abilities
The VALORANT agent, 'Astra,' will have to place Stars, which are throwable projectiles, all over the map to activate their different abilities. In the Buy Phase, players can purchase a maximum of five Stars, each for 200 economy points. To place the 'Star' on the map, the Ghanaian controller must enter its Astral form using the 'X' button. Once he does, he can use the Stars to create different effects:
1. Gravity Well (C)
This ability allows Astra to pull enemy players within the star’s radius. After that, the star explodes, making players who are caught in it vulnerable for some time.
2. Nova Pulse (Q)
The Nova Pulse ability charges Stars towards enemies and then detonates, concussing players around it.
3. Nebula (E)
This ability, when activated, converts a Star into a Nebula (Smokeball).
4. Cosmic Divide (X)
The Cosmic Divide is Astra’s Ultimate that allows her to place a massive barrier on the map. The Cosmic wall divides the entire map into two parts, dampening the audio for enemies. The barrier blocks enemies’ bullets, so the other team has no choice but to walk through the barrier to attack.
5. Dissipate (F)
Fortunately, players can retake the Stars placed on the map using ‘F.’ After a short cool-down, players can place the retracted Stars on other locations. This ability, when activated, forms a fake Nebula before returning the Star to players.
