Harbor was revealed to be the next Agent headed to Valorant and now we finally get a first look at the Indian Controller in action. The latest gameplay trailer released by Riot showcases Harbor’s abilities including a rather devastating ultimate ability.
Harbor’s core abilities revolve around his ability to use tide and torrent to wreak havoc on opponents while shielding his allies from enemy attacks. The character is the first character of Indian origins in Valorant, which has steadily become one of India’s most popular competitive shooter games.
The latest update, 5.08, arrives on October 18 – bringing Harbor to the selection pool as part of Episode 5 Act 3. Valorant’s latest update will bring balance changes to both weapons and Agents and it will be interesting to see where Harbor fits into the meta.
