Valorant Astra: 15th agent can pull campers out of Bind’s teleporters

15th agent arrived with a slew of new abilities, but her ability to track down campers is at the top of the list.

The fourth controller and the 15th agent is a breath of fresh air in Valorant’s current meta, dominated by the five aggressive duelists. Yoru’s recruitment in the roster only strengthened the dual roster, leaving the skill aspect of Riot’s shooter in the shade. Adding a versatile controller helps to balance the game to a massive extent, bringing the spotlight back to the skills and powers of the agent.

Valorant Astra‘s equipment reflects a portion of each agent’s skill set. She has the ability to concuss, smoke, and lock down a location. Her Gravity Well, on the other hand, is a one-of-a-kind addition to the Valorant ability set. 

Astra and her teammates gain an aim advantage by using the tornado-like power to pull agents into a center. Astra can also pull out campers in addition to centering enemies into a pre-placed nano swarm or Viper’s Molotov.

How to use 15th agent to deal with campers on Bind

In both competitive and unranked games, the teleporter on the Bind map can ruin the fun. Players frequently camp inside the doors to ambush opponents rather than using it as a shortcut or executing flanks. For campers, Astra has the perfect antidote.

On Bind, a  player named g_boi experimented with Valorant Astra‘s ability and was successful in annihilating the campers.

To do so in the game, enter Astral Form by pressing X and place a star in predetermined locations. Bind teleporters, for example. Make sure the star is centered on the door’s edge. To draw enemies out of the teleporter, turn it into a Gravity Well. Because opponents are completely exposed to the Gravity Well, campers who hide inside teleports will almost certainly be caught off guard.

The well’s radius is large enough to encircle nearly half of the teleporter. Enemies from within  the teleports would be treading on thin ice with Gravity Well’s sharp star carrying power. After being caught in Astra’s tornado once, they are unlikely to try camping again.

Who is this agent? 

The latest addition to the controller roster of Riot Games is the star and space handler, Astra. The celestial agent equips stars that can be changed into a Gravity well, a concuss, or a smoke. 

Her re-deployable stars and limitless control over the map have made her one of the most powerful controllers to date. 15th agent ultimate makes her incredibly powerful as she can divide the universe into two parts. The impenetrable wall swallows bullets and dampens the audio.
