Riot Games continue their official Valorant Agent Reveals with Jett. Her playstyle is to be elusive and make quick strikes. “Jett’s agile and evasive fighting style lets her take risks no one else can. She runs circles around every skirmish, cutting enemies up before they even know what hit them.”

- Cloudburst- Throw out a cloud of fog that obscures vision on impact. Hold down the ability button to bend the cloud’s in-flight trajectory.
- Updraft- After a brief wind up, propel yourself upwards.
- Tailwind- Immediately dash a short distance in the direction you’re moving.
- Blade Storm- Arm yourself with several deadly throwing knives that deal moderate damage and kill on headshots. Scoring a kill restores all daggers. Left-click throws a single dagger. Right-click throws all remaining daggers in a short-ranged burst.
No surprise here, Jett will be an offensive type agent. Her goal will be to cause chaos and get kills while also being sneaky. In essence, she will be the ninja or assassin of this first batch of agents. Jett will be getting in and out of fights faster than anyone else and likely will be one of the most skill-intensive agents.
Her Cloudburst ability will be important as she will be able to hide herself to get in or out of certain situations. Also, she will be able to use this to help out her allies. This ability will come in handy in numerous situations which is important in a shooter.

Updraft and Tailwind will be similar in that they will be used to give her positional advantages. She can more quickly get in and out of fights based on Tailwind. This ability will feel like Ezreal or Tracer’s. Updraft will likely be used a lot for scouting but can also be used defensively or offensively to have the “high-ground”.
Lastly, her Blade Storm is what makes her one of the most offensive agents so far. While we do not know how much damage these abilities do yet, it is safe to assume that they will do enough to keep people from wanting to get hit by them. It will pair well with all of her other abilities. Imagine seeing knives come out of her fog all of a sudden. Or seeing them rain from the sky or even just straight up getting hit in the face when she dashes to you. Jett will be a fun agent and one meant for topping the kill-board.
