Duelist
Abilities
Abilities:
Hot Hands

Run it Back

Phoenix is an offensive VALORANT agent, who specializes in hunting down enemies, while crippling their ability to fire back. The Blaze ability creates walls that blocks vision and deals damage, allowing Phoenix to sneak past defended open areas, while Curveball blinds enemies, even if they're hinding behind corners. In combination, Hot Hands and the Run it Back ultimate make Phoenix a very durable duelist and players who like to play aggressively will really enjoy this agent's gameplay
