Valorant’s Newest Agent Breakdown: Harbor
It has been a while since a new character from Valorant has premiered in patch 5.08. Let’s have Valorant’s Newest Agent Breakdown as we always do with all their agents.
Hailing from the India Sub Continent, our first south Asian agent, Harbor has the role of controller. He is the first agent to be using Radiante infused artefacts, which is something new. This adds to the already rich Valorant lore. The Third element in the orient lore, Harbor has the power of water so it seems that he can bend it to his will, using the artefacts in his possession of course.
This also brings us to how long has Radiante been existing in the universe? Well for those who love the lore, I guess we have to wait for more details as the story of Valorant unravels.
Possessing the power over water Harbor’s skill set is quite unique, here is the breakdown of his in game abilities.
High Tide (E)
EQUIP a wall of water. FIRE to send the water forward along the ground. HOLD FIRE to guide the water in the direction of your crosshair, passing through the world, spawning a wall along the water’s path. ALT FIRE while bending to stop the water early. Players hit are SLOWED
EQUIP a sphere of shielding water. FIRE to throw. ALT FIRE to underhand throw. Upon impacting the ground, spawn a water shield that blocks bullets.
EQUIP a wave of water. FIRE to send the wave rolling forward and through walls. RE-USE to stop the wave from moving further. Players hit are SLOWED.
EQUIP the full power of your Artifact. FIRE to summon a geyser pool on the ground. Enemy players in the area are targeted by successive geyser strikes. Players caught within a strike are CONCUSSED.
We from what is written it seems that Harbor is quite the controller.
According to Alexander Mistakidis, Designer, “We set out to create a Controller that didn’t have to go off into another world or look at a map to place their vision block. We also wanted to create an Agent that could compete with Viper on the maps where she is almost exclusively played. After Kevin Meier completed his initial explorations, he honed in on Harbor being an Agent that can shape their vision block on the battlefield in creative ways.”
Since the last agent controller Astra was released, which shook up the gaming meta and unfortunately got nerfed in a big way. Will Harbor suffer the same fate? I guess this time it is up to the creativity of the players.
