Agent Yoru: The new update has Agent Yoru with ultimate powers to create distractions and run through interfaces when he is fighting against the opposing squad. Not only enhanced distractions, but his sense of hearing is also enhanced as he can anticipate the sound of footsteps and can react to it.

Further looking into Agent Yoru’s abilities, he can also teleport, and can pull on a power full projectile against the enemies in The Valorant: Season 2, when released later in the week.
