Here's our guide to Viper in Valorant.

The lid has been lifted on Valorant, formerly known as Project A and we've been given our first look at the characters and their abilities - in particular Viper.

Viper deploys an array of poisonous chemical devices to control the battlefield and cripple the enemy’s vision. If the toxins don’t kill her prey, her mind games surely will.

Here's our guide to this agent.

Viper Gameplay

Viper Abilities

  • Snakebite: Fire a projectile that explodes into a pool of damaging acid.
  • Poison Cloud: Throw a gas emitter that you can reactivate to create a poisonous smoke cloud at the cost of fuel. The emitter can be picked up and thrown again after a short cooldown.
  • Signature Ability ⁠— Toxic Screen: Deploy a long line of gas emitters that you can reactivate to create a tall wall of toxic gas at the cost of fuel.
  • Ultimate⁠— Viper’s Pit: Emit a massive toxic cloud in a large area that lasts as long as Viper stays inside the cloud. Enemies inside the cloud are highlighted.

 

Gameplay

Ideal for map control, Viper is ideal for protecting corridors or open spaces – provided you have enough fuel.

She's also great for placing traps since she can remain inside the "Pit" and to prevent the cloud from vanishing – leaving enemies as sitting ducks.
