Valorant's brand new update has implemented a brand new agent into the pool in the form of Astra.

Astra is one of the most interesting agents they have released yet, but Riot has already promised balance tweaks are coming since Astra's abilities mean she can essentially watch the Spike while in her astral form.

However, this does not mean you cannot master the new agent and dominate the competition with her.

Here are some handy tips and tricks for Astra!

 

 

Abilities

In case you do not know how powerful Astra truly is, here is a quick reminder of her abilities and ultimate: 

C: GRAVITY WELL

Place Stars in Astral Form (X)

ACTIVATE a Star to form a Gravity Well. Players in the area are pulled toward the center before it explodes, making all players still trapped inside fragile.

Q: NOVA PULSE

Place Stars in Astral Form (X)

ACTIVATE a Star to detonate a Nova Pulse. The Nova Pulse charges briefly then strikes, concussing all players in its area.

E: NEBULA

Place Stars in Astral Form (X)

ACTIVATE a Star to transform it into a Nebula (smoke).

F: DISSIPATE

Use (F) on a Star to Dissipate it, returning the star to be placed in a new location after a delay.

Dissipate briefly forms a fake Nebula at the Star’s location before returning.

Ultimate 

X: ASTRAL FORM / COSMIC DIVIDE

ACTIVATE to enter Astral Form where you can place Stars with PRIMARY FIRE. Stars can be reactivated later, transforming them into a Nova Pulse, Nebula, or Gravity Well.

When Cosmic Divide is charged, use SECONDARY FIRE in Astral Form to begin aiming it, then PRIMARY FIRE to select two locations. An infinite Cosmic Divide connects the two points you select. Cosmic Divide blocks bullets and heavily dampens audio.

 

Tips and Tricks

Since Astra is brand new, there is still a lot of debate into how to exactly play her.

But, her ultimate ability has caused some controversy since the agent released. As players are able to view the Spike within this form, so we recommend trying this out until they eventually patch this.

On the other side, strategic use of your Nova Pulse on certain chokepoints is also another tip we can provide you. Placing these in certain hallways or contested points will allow you to quickly dispatch enemies.
