Sova’s Owl Drone gives you a sneak peek into a Reactor Location or lane while tagging adversaries for your squad. The 400 Creds controlled drone is a great weapon for any squad needing intel. With the Recon Bolt, you may gather a wealth of information about your foes’ whereabouts while remaining unharmed.

In Valorant, how to you play Sova in general?
To get the most out of your Russian hunter, you’ll need to master your lineups and where to shoot your Recon Bolt. You can also use your low-cost Owl Drone to spy around. The enemy can easily destroy the drone, however. However, mastering the art of trying to charge a Recon Bolt to rebound it off surfaces can supply you with a wealth of vital information.
The Agent’s Ultimate (Hunter’s Fury) has two objectives. Sova can shoot three lethal energy blasts that can pierce a big area of the map in one direction. The wall-piercing energy bursts deal damage and also reveal your enemy’s location, thus this is a useful tool.
Defuse can trap foes into a corner or drive them from off the detonation because they will be sitting ducks. Sova’s Hunter’s Fury has become one of the causes why he is the expert of recon.
