Sova is Valorant’s recon person.

Riot has dropped a first look trailer at Sova, the Russian intel-based hero in Valorant. Sova is the bow-and-arrow character, whom you may recognise from the gameplay reveal.

Unlike Viper, and Phoenix, Sova’s abilities are designed to reveal enemy locations but don’t directly deal damage to them.

In the video, we see Sova use his drone, which lets him see where enemies are. The drone can also fire a dart to reveal enemy locations to teammates.

Sova’s most interesting ability is the recon arrow, which pulses the area it lands in to reveal enemies in real-time, and doesn’t require him to operate it once it’s fired.

Valorant is Riot Games’ 5v5 shooter, due later this year. It’s going to be free-to-play, but you will have the option to spend money on direct-purchase skins or grind them through a Battle Pass.
