Omen is Valorant’s mysterious, edgy hero.

Omen is the Reaper-looking, purple-hooded character in Valorant. Today, Riot dropped a first-look trailer showing off his abilities.

Omen’s main ability is Shrouded Step, which lets him mark a location in the 3D world and teleport to it. Paranoia is a confusion ability that allows him to fire off projectiles that blind anyone they touch, and can even pass through walls.

As with most Valorant heroes, Omen also has a walling ability called Dark Cover. When activated, Dark Cover fires off an orb that creates a vision-blocking sphere.

Omen’s ultimate is From the Shadows which lets him teleport to anywhere on the map. By activating it, it brings up the minimap letting you choose where to teleport.

In other Valorant news, Riot recently explained why the game’s anti-cheat is always on, after a number of players raised concerns.
