Sova is capable of more than just finding kills through walls as this creative Valorant trick has unveiled an all-new way to use the agent’s Ultimate.
Valorant’s Closed Beta has barely been available for a few weeks and players have already been discovering some clever tricks with each Agent.
While flashy kills are one thing, certain tricks allow players to access new vantage points, or leave opponents bamboozled. A brand new Sova tactic is capable of doing just that, as enemy teams are sure to be stumped by this creative play.
When triggering the Hunter’s Fury Ultimate, Sova players are able to fire three powerful ‘energy blasts’ through any surface and damage enemies on the other side. Not only that, but opponents hit by the ability will also have their location revealed for a brief moment.
Instead of firing the third and final blast towards the competition, however, Reddit user ‘Fuwuji’ uncovered some fascinating new tech. After securing two eliminations, they aimed at fired at the ground which resulted in a powerful movement boost.
Similar to the likes of Raze’s Blast Packs, Sova is surprisingly able to launch himself further into the sky by firing his Ultimate at the ground.

Defending the A Spike-site on Split, they were just one round away from winning the match and decided to test out a new trick. Fortunately, things worked out in their favor.
“It’s the Sova tech,” they said after launching themselves onto a higher vantage point directly on the objective.
While the unique spot certainly didn’t provide much in the way of cover, it’s a surefire way to catch enemies by surprise. No one would ever expect to see a Sova up high in such a unique position.
“The third shot, however, has additional knockback,” they also revealed. “Which allows you to land on top of double-stacked boxes, shown in the clip.”
Given that brand new information, Sova should now be able to jump to a wide array of previously unreachable locations.
There’s no telling just how pivotal this could be for the overall flow of Valorant but for the time being, it appears to be an intended effect and not a bug that Riot will soon patch out — now we just have to see how players will use it!
