The next VALORANT agent, Astra, has been revealed

VALORANT Episode 2 Act 2 starts on March 2, and we already know what to expect — a video featuring Astra, a Controller whose kit revolves around the galaxy and stars, has been revealed by Riot Games on Twitter.

According to her official biography, Astra hails from Ghana, "harnesses the energies of the cosmos to reshape battlefields to her whim." She promises to be a devastating addition to the roster.

Details of her abilities can be found below:

Astra's Abilities


Place Stars in Astral Form

Activate a Star to form a Gravity Well. Players in the area are pulled toward the center before it explodes, making all players still trapped inside Fragile.


Place Stars in Astral Form

Activate a Star to detonate a Nova Pulse. The Nova Pulse charges briefly then strikes, concussing all players in its area.


Place Stars in Astral Form

Activate a Star to transform it into a Nebula (smoke).


Use on a Star to Dissipate it, returning the Star to be placed in a new location after a delay.

Dissipate briefly forms a fake Nebula at the Star’s location before returning.


Activate to enter Astral Form where you can place Stars with Primary Fire. Stars can be reactivated later, transforming them into Nova Pulses, Nebulas, or Gravity Wells.

When Cosmic Divide is charged, use Secondary Fire in Astral Form to begin aiming it, then Primary Fire to select two locations. An Infinity Cosmic Divide connects the two points you select. Cosmic Divide blocks bullets and heavily dampens audio.
