While Omen’s Ultimate ability is often used to scout unseen areas or to leave your enemies confused, a new game-breaking Valorant glitch makes it more deadly than ever before.

As a Controller in Riot’s tactical FPS, Omen is all about gaining intel while obscuring enemy vision. Through his smokes and blinding abilities, the best players are able to shut down enemy attacks while setting up perfect plays for their own team.

Omen is never really considered a top-fragging Agent compared to any given Duelist. Though a brand new bug with his Ultimate makes him a better killing machine than perhaps any one of them.

Rather than simply teleporting to a new location and calling out enemy positions, a devastating glitch allows him to shoot while in Ult-form. It’s a real “bad one,” even from Riot’s perspective.

Glitch: Killing in Omen’s ult animation from VALORANT

While experimenting in a custom game, Reddit user ‘kazefujin’ came across a critical issue on December 31. “If you cast both the smoke and the Ultimate at the same time, you can shoot and cast skills while invulnerable.”

The example provided shows Omen teleporting to the high ground over A-site on Ascent. Despite being in his ‘Shade’ form, the bug allows him to draw his weapons and start firing immediately.

Unsuspecting enemies will be waiting for the player to either teleport or retreat back to their original spot. No one could ever prepare for a Shade that can actually kill you in the blink of an eye.

“That’s a bad one,” Valorant game designer ‘Rycoux’ responded.  We’ll try to find out what’s going on and get to this next week.”

Given that Riot Games employees are on break at the moment, this Omen glitch has shot to the top of their priorities upon returning to work in 2021.

This means Omens will be able to utilize this bug to their advantage; be on the lookout for aggressive teleports, and never trust a Shade until a fix is deployed.

The forever-skillful Jay-Jay Okocha has finally gotten his Prime ICON card in FIFA 21, and you can pick him up for your Ultimate Team ⁠— if you’re willing to part way with your coins. Here’s what you need to do.

Jay-Jay Okocha really pumped flavor into football. His stylish moves made the likes of Ronaldinho household names, and the Nigerian experienced plenty of success for himself with PSG, Eintracht Frankfurt, and Bolton.

Now, he can bring success to your FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. The 90-rated Prime ICON is available through the game’s latest set of ICON SBCs, although you’ll have to be willing to part ways with a fair bit of cash for him.

Okocha’s Prime ICON card puts the legendary Nigerian into the 90s and primed for a Pace style to bump him up further theoretically.

With 87 Pace ⁠— one down from his base 85 ICON ⁠— he might not be as fast, but he makes up for it across the board with better Passing (+5), Shooting (+3), and Dribbling (+2). Throw on Hunter, and you can get up to 96 Pace and 90 Shooting. It’s a lethal card to have in CAM, especially when you take 5* Skills and 4* Weak Foot into account.

Jay-Jay Okocha ICON SBC price & requirements

Jay-Jay Okocha is the cheapest of the three new ICON SBCs, coming in at around 500,000 to 750,000 coins. If you’ve got spare cards lying around ⁠— especially high-rated untradeables ⁠— it might be worth the investment.

You’ll need to complete six SBCs for the job though. Here’s what you need to do.
