Note: The Valorant Neon Agent Abilities may differ in terms of names & possibly the extent of utility.
Ever wanted to dash into a site quickly but afraid or tired of playing as Jett? Neon can be your ideal choice with her Quick Slide/Sprint ability. It allows her to move rapidly in a particular direction, which can be dangerous for Initiator Agents & Operator players. Say no more to holding angles tightly!
If you admire the Viper/Phoenix wall, Neon will find your fancy with her dual electric fences. The phenomenon of her ability will create a corridor, which can prove to be incredibly beneficial on Split, Fracture, etc.
When you enjoy dazing enemies and teammates by playing as Astra or Breach, Neon can be your replacement. Her Concussive Charge ability can bounce off two walls before pulsing on the ground like KAYO’s grenade. Naturally, as an outcome, dazing any valorant agents caught in it.
Valorant Neon Ultimate Ability: Lightning Projectiles?
The commotion & excitement about Neon being an electric agent becomes fruitful to watch when she activates her Ultimate Ability. She can use her fingertips to project electricity towards the crosshair, killing enemies in almost a second.
The lightning beam projectile will be incredibly lethal, and she could also use it with her Sprint/Slide ability. Moreover, any Valorant agents on an enemy team hit by it will twitch, therefore losing the ability to aim precisely. Sounds too good to be true? We’ll see!
