All of Yoru’s abilities in Valorant, and how to use them

Get ahead of the competition.


Yoru will be coming to Valorant on January 12, and if you want to figure out if this new Agent is for you, then we have all the information you need. Not only can we tell you what his abilities do, but thanks to EsportsDoug, we have some excellent examples of how to use them to your advantage.

Yoru is very much a disruptor of your enemy’s plans. From throwing them off the scent with Fakeout, blinding them all with a well placed Blindside, or even appearing behind them with Gatecrash. If you like being able to force the issue during a stalemate or distract and disrupt the enemy team by getting into places that they won’t see coming, then Yoru is the Agent for you.

Below, you will find a brief description on each of his abilities, along with videos showing you some excellent spots to Blindside enemies on Bind and Ascent, and how to take advantage of Gatecrash on Haven and Split.

Here are all of Yoru’s abilities:

C – Fakeout

Equip an echo that mimics footsteps when activated. Fire to activate and send the echo forward, alt-fire to place an echo in place, and use the inactive echo to send it forward.

E – Gatecrash

Equip to harness a rift tether. Fire to send the tether out moving forward, alt-fire to put a tether in place, and activate to teleport to the tether’s location.

Q – Blindside

Equip to rip an unstable dimensional fragment from reality. Fire to throw the fragment, activating a flash that winds up once it collides with a hard surface in the world.

Ultimate – Dimensional Drift

Equips a mask that can see between dimensions. Fire to drift into Yoru’s dimension, making the player unable to be affected or seen by enemies during the ultimate’s duration.
