Valorant has already become the top game on Twitch.
Content creators and streamers were officially allowed to start sharing gameplay of Riot’s highly anticipated FPS title. Big names like Timothy “TimTheTatMan” Betar, Saqib “Lirik” Zahid, Jaryd “Summit1G” Lazar, Team SoloMid’s Ali “Myth” Kabbani and Sebastian “Forsen” Fors showcased the game to their fans. Twitch also held a Twitch Rivals Valorant showcase.
Gamers have flocked to these channels to learn more about Valorant ahead of the closed beta, including a closer look at the gameplay, agents and their abilities.
By watching Myth and Classify, a content creator for 100 Thieves, fans got to see a brand new agent. Breach is the 9th Valorant agent and his abilities seem to be focused on disruption.
Breach Might Be My Favorite Agent... (VALORANT FIRST REACTION)
TSM’s Myth shows off Breach’s strong abilities
Breach’s Aftershock is a fusion charge that can only be activated when fired at a wall. Enemies in its reach when it detonates will receive “heavy damage.” This is a great ability to use on approaching enemies who may not suspect that they’re walking into a trap.
Just like Aftershock, Breach’s Flashpoint ability must also be used on a wall. This ability is a bit more powerful, though, since it detonates on the other side of the wall, blinding players looking in that direction. Classify felt this ability was perfect for a Search and Destroy mode, since it would greatly disrupt opponents who were guarding a location. Myth was able to get a kill with Flashpoint during his stream when a player kept camping behind a door.
But that’s just the beginning of Breach’s intense earthquake-themed kit.
“This guy is the fucking truth, bro,” Myth exclaimed upon winning a round. He’d used Breach’s abilities to blast through an enemy Sage’s Barrier Orbit, leaving them helpless to the incoming fire. “Holy shit. Whoever the fuck I’m playing, bro? He’s nuts.”
Fault Line lets loose an earthquake that stuns players caught within the seismic blast. The longer the player holds down the fire button, the farther the fault travels.
Then there’s Breach’s ultimate ability, Rolling Thunder. Similar to Fault Line, this is a zoning ability that dazes and stuns anyone caught within the “cascading quake’s large cone.”
“This guy is a lot of fun,” Myth said. “It’s a kit I understand. I could do this.”
