Harbor Gameplay Tips And Tricks
Harbor falls under the Controller category of agents within Valorant, alongside Brimstone, Viper, Omen and Astra. Meaning he excels at holding sites, getting map control and essentially being the last line between you and the enemy.
In terms of his High Tide ability, or the moving wall of water players can put up around the map. On attack, you're going to want to use this when your team is about to entry a site, in order to isolate one half from another. While on defense, this will be key for stopping enemies from freely pushing choke points and what not.
Moving on, his Cove (Q) ability, is going to act as a reinforced smoke for players to use. Perhaps this will be best used when there's proper lineups for it. However, this can be good for getting a plant/defuse off, or blocking off a certain point where your wall couldn't.
Harbor's next ability, Cascacde (C) is another entry devic that can not only be used to get ahead of enemies in terms of slowing them when they're holding an angle. But, it can also be stopped to act as another mini-wall of cover!
Lastly, we have Harbor's ultimate ability, Reckoning (X) which acts as a triple concussion grenade for enemies in a large sphere. Which will best be used when retaking a site or entrying at first glance. This will bascially trap all enemies in the site, and concuss them three times in a row!
