Here's another look at Fade:
Earlier this month, Fade's abilities have been leaked, but Riot hasn't officially confirmed if these are true:
Send out a creature that can follow trails or be controlled by moving your mouse. Upon reaching an enemy, they will be nearsighted for three seconds. Only one creature is allowed per trail.
Equip and fire an orb that will stay in the air for a max of 1.5 seconds before slamming into the ground. When the orb hits the ground, enemies within its nearby radius will be tethered, take damage, and be deafened.
Equip and fire an orb that will stay in the air and then hit the ground. It will then go back into the air and turn into an eye. If Enemies are spotted by the eye, they will be revealed and a trailed debuff is applied.
X (Ultimate) – Nightfall
Send out a wave of dark mist. If the mist hits an enemy, they will be deafened, trailed, and decayed.
Riot also promises to reveal Fade's gamplay and cinematic debut at the VALORANT Masters Grand Final on April 24.
