Raze is an explosives expert who’s also good at laying traps and sending killer robots after enemies.

Riot dropped a first look trailer at Raze, Valorant‘s Brazilian character. Raze is designed for players who like to predict enemy movement.

She’s also a bit of an demolitions expert. Raze can throw what’s essentially a C4 with Blast Pack, and remotely detonate it when an enemy nears for maximum damage. Raze can also fire off Boom Bot, which is a small robot that locks onto and chases enemies. The bot explodes when it reaches them.

Boosting her damage potential further, Raze’s Paint Shell is basically a cluster grenade she can throw. Raze’s ultimate is Showstopper, which gives her a rocket launcher.

Valorant’s anti-cheat recently got a big update that allows users to turn it off from a system tray icon, but it’s been seemingly blocking legitimate apps while it’s running. The developer pledged to update it regularly to avoid similar cases of false positives, but remains committed to its approach to anti-cheat.
