Reyna is all about performance. You kill, you become indestructible. This isn’t the type of agent where you can just spam abilities to get kills, Reyna mains get rewarded with more power when they perform well. In this Valorant Reyna guide, we will introduce you to the character’s capabilities and how to exploit them. Are you ready to impress your team and be the Empress?
Valorant Reyna Guide: Abilities
Description: When Reyna gets a kill, Reyna consumes a Soul Orb from the fallen enemy. Using the Orb for Devour rapidly heals Reyna. The ability can overheal but decays after 25 seconds unless Devour is recasted. The skill is automatically cast if the ultimate, Empress, is active. Cost: 100 (shared with Dismiss)
Healing can be cut off if there is an obstacle between Reyna and the Orb for more than a second.
Reyna is unable to fire for 1 second when healing.
Enemy team can see the tether between the orb and Reyna, therefore the enemies will have an idea about your position.
Description: If the player chooses to use the Soul Orb for Dismiss, Reyna becomes intangible for 2 seconds along with a movement boost. This means Reyna cannot be shot at, but she cannot shoot also. Players can choose which weapon to equip in the duration of Dismiss. When Empress is active, Reyna become invisible. Cost: 100 (Shared with Devour)
When Devour is active, Reyna is surrounded in a purple glow.
Description: Reyna equips a magical eye in a short distance, causing Nearsight onto enemies who look at it. The ability can pass through obstructions and disappears after 2 seconds. Cost: 200
Leer can be destroyed by enemies by shooting it.
To the enemies, it casts a blinding purple haze where it masks everything in purple aside from what is very close to you.
Description: Reyna become utmost powerful. For 30 seconds, her reload, firing and equip speeds are increased by 15%. Devour and Dismiss is also granted infinite charges. When Reyna is able to kill when Empress is active, she can choose her Soul Orb choice and Empress resets its duration.
Enemies are in bright red during Empress. Enemies are easier to spot, easier to kill.
Reyna is a Duelist-type of character. Therefore, the player must be comfortable playing aggressively and is always on the look out for kills. Reyna thrives in 1v1s, so you as a player must be able to as well.
Reyna is almost a one-person duo as she is able to heal herself when needed. But still, having support like Sage or someone who can keep an eye on flanks like Cypher would work well for the team overall so Reyna can focus on waving destruction to the enemy team. Team compositions usually have 2-3 duelist and Reyna is a fine pick to fill in that role.
Leer is perfect for quick peeks around a corner or even simply just as bait to collect information as the enemy team tries to shoot it down, thus exposing their location.
A wise Leer move is placing the eye slightly higher than the line of sight. Enemies will have to move their crosshair to destroy it, giving you a chance to take the kill.
Take advantage of Reyna’s Dismiss moments for peeking or escaping from a disadvantageous situation. Keep in mind how quick it can go by as you don’t want to get caught as it times out without a weapon in hand. End it in a safe place and deny the enemy a trade.
A chaotic but robust combination is using a machine gun like an Odin with Reyna’s Empress. I think the enemy team might just forfeit that round.
Reyna will deliver you the top frag or even an ace, if played properly. Now go and get your Soul Orbs!
