Valorant Harbor Guide - How to play Harbor?
Harbor is a controller agent with a fast-paced style, attacking will be his strong side. The issue with Harbor will be to decide which agent and spot will he take, because Harbor doesn't seem like a must-pick, and he is not viable as a solo controller. So far he is getting a bit underwhelming review by players and may get a small buff after his initial release.
Harbor is not difficult to play but will have a higher ceiling to maximize his potential. Here are some insights on Harbor's abilities and kit-
This moving wall is very good for taking up space.
Will be used against Operator users to take control.
Has a short duration to use as a viable sight blocker.
Good for planting and defusing.
Has around 500 HP.
Very good ability for pistol rounds.
Around 15 sec uptime, but will not even stay as a smoke after breaking.
This wall's trajectory is controllable with the mouse.
This wall will be used around 2 time, it has a 40 sec cooldown and 15 sec uptime.
Considered as a mediocre ult.
Has a huge AOE so will cover almost all the sites of any map.
Will stun in a small AOE around the enemy, but can be dodged pretty easily.
Will provide a bit of information about enemy's positon, and it will strike three times.
