Overview of Clove's skills

EDIT : Find out more about Clove's skills.

Sold by Riot Games as an Agent for those who take on the role of ControllerClove has a kit that should give these players the opportunity to experience front-line combat without endangering their teamparticularly in the event of premature death.

Like as we had previously assumedthe new recruit to the Valorant Protocol can come back to life! In the trailer, we see that Clove's spirit can leave her inert body, to reposition itself elsewhere before reappearing.

This has yet to be confirmed, but it seems that all players can see this temporary avatarenemies included. If this is the case, they can track down the spirit and try to kill Clove when it reappears. It will therefore be necessary to Take care when using this skill.

We had also already received hints from Riot Games confirming that the presence of smokes in its kit. Today, we learn more about this, thanks to the gameplay video. We understand that Agent 25 can place smoke bombs in the style of Brimstonewith an open mini-map when the skill is activated.

It seems possible to create one-ways, but this will require knowledge of the locations, since, unlike Omen, Clove does not have no 3D vision of space. For the moment, we don't know how many smoke bombs will be deployed in total, but we can estimate that Clove has at least two at his disposal based on the information provided in the video.

As far as the next skill is concerned, its function is not very clear at the moment. On several occasions, we can see that it will be possible to launch some kind of orb that can bounce off a wall - a bit like Yoru's flashbulbs - and explode once on the ground to affect opponents in the area of effect. We can imagine that these are slowed down or weakened.

The last skill is present in the trailer, but a little more subtle to detect if you're not careful. When you've just shot an enemy, it looks like you can get a boostat least temporarily. The video isn't very explicit, but you'll have to probably click on your screen just after elimination to take advantage of it, a bit like Iso with his shield.
