Valorant Fade Role
In March 2022 State of the Agents BlogJohn ‘RiotMEMEMMEME’ Goscicki has revealed that the new agent Valorant Fade is a Initiator.
“There’s been a lot of conversation within the Character Team around Initiators, especially Sova,” says RiotMEMEMMEMEME. “Its initiation tools are unique in that they rely on reconnaissance and information gathering to give you and the team tools to decide your next step. Much of the VALORANT’s tactical loop is all about information Knowing where enemies are/are not and leveraging that information to execute them during that window slice is key to many successful victories.
“So the notion of another agent that revolves around the intel-gathering aspect of the tactical loop has, for a while, been a priority for us.”
Valorant Fade Skills
Along with the reveal that Fade would be an Initiator, Riot MEMEMEME also hinted at the Agent Kit theme. According to the developer, “this next agent should give you a more… intimate feeling when hunting down enemies” – creepy.
Since then, Riot has unveiled the full kit for the new Agent. Here are Fade’s abilities.
- Prowler (C)
- EQUIP a Prowler. FIRE will send the Prowler out, causing it to travel in a straight line. The Prowler will lock onto any enemies or trails within their forward vision cone and chase them, seeing them up close if it hits them. HOLD the FIRE button to aim the Prowler in the direction of your crosshairs.
- Grab (Q)
- Equip a Nightmarish Ink Orb. SHOOT to throw the orb which will fall to the ground after a while. Upon hitting the ground, the ink will explode and create an area that enemies caught in it cannot escape through normal means. REUSE the ability to drop the projectile early in flight
- Haunt (E)
- Equip a nightmarish entity. SHOOT to throw the orb which will fall to the ground after a while. Upon hitting the ground, the orb will transform into a nightmarish entity that will reveal the location of enemies caught in its line of sight. Enemies can destroy this entity. REUSE the ability to drop the projectile early in flight.
- Nightfall (X)
- EQUIP the power of fear. FIRE to send out a wave of nightmarish energy that can pass through walls. The energy creates a trail to the opponent, deafening them and breaking them down.
Here’s Fade’s gameplay reveal trailer so you can see them in-game.
Nationality Valorant Fade
Valorant fade is Turkish. RiotMEMEMEMEME ended the last article on the state of the agents with the following sentence: “I’m afraid of the grind, but hey ‘Herkesin bir korkusu var.'” A quick Google Translate confirms that the last part is in fact Turkish and means ‘everyone is afraid’ in English.
The blog entry is then signed with a photo of a cup of tea and what appears to be a small plate of Turkish Delight. As shared by ‘Cynprel’ on Twitter, Valorant Turkish lore lover ‘valohabercisi’ notes that the ring sticking out of the saucer is adorned with what appears to be an evil eye bead – a traditional Turkish charm that protects against the evil.

Looking at Fade’s official splash art, we can also clearly see the evil eye incorporated into the underbelly of his design.
