Those currently enjoying Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 may be interested in the release of the newest agent ValorantIso.
Currently, my anime-riddled brain won’t let me think about much other than Jujutsu Kaisen. So when I saw Valorant’s newest character, that was obviously the connection my brain immediately made. Iso was revealed in a trailer earlier this week that highlighted some of his backstory. According to the trailer, he is a mysterious assassin who has managed to kill entire groups of people with just a single bullet, or so the story goes. However, what makes him unique is his ultimate ability, “Kill Contract.”
This is where the Jujutsu Kaisen vibes come into play, because when you use it you shoot out a column of energy that attracts any opponent that is closest to it. The two of you will then be transported to a closed arena where you must fight to the death. For those who haven’t seen Jujutsu Kaisen, there are special abilities called domains that lock your enemy in a separate room. Essentially, it’s the last attempts that all but guarantee a win, so you can see where the comparisons can be drawn.
It’s a really cool ultimate and offers as much risk as reward. It’s certainly a situation where you need to be quick on the trigger. According to ValorLeaks, the ultimate lasts up to 15 seconds and both players will die if no one is killed at the end. ValorLeaks also showcases Iso’s other abilities; There’s Contingency, which shoots a wall of energy that can deflect bullets, Undercut, which lets you give a short breakable effect to anyone it touches, and Double Tap, an ability that lets you After killing an enemy, you can shoot an energy ball when activated, which if successful gives you a shield that absorbs damage from anywhere.
You can play as Iso when he joins Valorant in Episode 7: Act 3 on October 31st.
