Unveiling Deadlock Abilities
To get acquainted with Deadlock capabilities, here is a breakdown of her core abilities in VALORANT:
- GravNet (C): Equip a GravNet grenade, and choose between throwing it or lobbing it underhand. Upon impact, the GravNet compels caught enemies to crouch and restricts their movement.
2. Sonic Sensor (Q): Equip a Sonic Sensor, deploy it, and let it monitor the surroundings for enemy sounds. If it detects footsteps, weapons fire, or significant noise, it concusses the area, disrupting the enemy’s presence.
3. Barrier Mesh (E): Equip a Barrier Mesh disc and propel it forward. Once it lands, the disc generates barriers that impede character movement, granting Deadlock and her team a defensive advantage.
4. Annihilation (X): Equip a Nanowire Accelerator, unleash a pulse of nanowires, and capture the first enemy they make contact with. The nanowire path pulls the ensnared enemy, ultimately leading to their demise. The nanowire cocoon is destructible, adding a strategic element to this deadly ability.
As the VALORANT community eagerly awaits the arrival of Deadlock, players can gear up to experience a thrilling combination of strategic gameplay and unparalleled control. However, Mark your calendars for June 27 and get ready to embrace this formidable new agent in VALORANT Episode 7, Act One.
