Norwegian agent, Deadlock, has a variety of cutting-edge nano-wires at her disposal that help her be a defensive powerhouse. One of her skills, the GravNet grenade forces adversaries to crouch and move slowly. Sonic Sensor keeps an eye out for opponents creating noise concussing enemies that make noise in the deployment area. Barrier Mesh creates walls from the character's starting position, preventing movement. Annihilation releases a nano-wire pulse that grabs the first adversary it contacts, wraps them in a cocoon, and strings them along the path of the deployed nano-wire. If the opponent reaches the end, they perish.
New Game Mode: Team Deathmatch
A staple of first-person shooters, Team Deathmatch (TDM) is finally in Valorant. In a nutshell, TDM is a 5v5 game mode that will match players against an opposing team on one of three new, specially designed maps. Players can choose their loadout for each stage when they first enter the match or at any moment in the spawn chamber. Players respawn every 1.5 seconds in this mode and the first team to score 100 kills wins.
TDM is the ideal game mode to warm-up before entering Competitive matchmaking because Agents' skills can be employed here, unlike regular Deathmatch. Additionally, players can find weapon spawners scattered across the area, allowing them to occasionally try out new weaponry. Healing and Ultimate Orbs will be dispersed over several areas of these maps. The TDM mode for Valorant includes three new maps:
- District: Inspired by Split and Lotus.
- Kasbah: Modeled after Bind and Fracture.\
- Piazza: Resembles Ascent and Pearl.
