Fade will be fully revealed during the Masters Reykjavík Grand Final.

Fade’s abilities were not yet officially revealed. However, some reputable leakers have already shared her alleged abilities a couple of weeks ago. According to Valorleaks, who is one of the biggest and most reliable Valorant leakers, this is Fade’s kit:

  • Seize (Q) – Fire an Orb which travels through the air for a max of 1.5s, after which it drops to the ground. After 0.5s upon hitting the ground, the Orb will expand out to a 7m radius and enemies caught in its effect will be tethered to the centre. Affected enemies will suffer 75 damage, will be Deafened, and will be unable to escape for 5s.
  • Haunt (E) – Fire an Orb which will remain in the air for a max of 1.5s, after which it slams to the ground. Upon falling, it will quickly go up again and become an Eye that can be destroyed. When the Eye sees an opponent it will mark it with a Trail debuff. The Trail debuff reveals an enemy and marks them for 12s.
  • Prowler (C) – Send out a creature that can either follow enemy Trails (from E) or be controlled by holding fire and moving your mouse. Upon reaching an enemy, after 0.5s cook time, they will be Nearsighted for 3s. You can have only 1 creature per trail.
  • NightFall (X) – Send out a wave of dark mist. If the mist connects with an enemy, they will be Deafened, Trailed, and Decayed for 12s.
