Riot Games just revealed yet another character to their upcoming first-person shooter game VALORANT, which is under closed beta as we speak. (You can watch gameplay from our previous live stream at the bottom of this article)
Cypher is of the spy and infiltrator archetype, depending on playstyle such as ambushing enemies with various traps, which daze, restrain slow enemies down. Cypher is also skilled in gathering information about the battlefield, using Spycam’s to monitor enemy team movements or extracting information from dead enemies to reveal the location of their allies. Skilled Cypher players will have intimate knowledge of VALORANT maps to know the best places to set traps and Spycams, crippling the enemy team while staying hidden in the shadows.
- Trapwire, place a destructible and cover tripwire at the targeted location, creating a line that spans between the placed location and the wall opposite. Enemy players who cross a tripwire will be tethered, revealed and dazed after a short period if they do not destroy the device in time. This ability can be picked up to be redeployed.
- Cyber Cage, toss the cyber cage in front of Cypher.
Activate to create a zone that blocks vision and slows enemies who pass through it.
- Spycam, place the spycam at the targeted location. Re-use this ability to take control of the camera’s view. While in control of the camera. Fire to shoot a marking dart. This dart will reveal the location of any player struck by the dart.
- Neural Theft (Ultimate), use on a dead enemy player in your crosshairs to reveal the location of all living enemy players.
