What can we expect from Clove?

As the first agent of the year and the sixth Controller, Clove will not only expand the roster to 25 (following the arrivals of Gekko, Deadlock, and Iso in 2023) but also bring a welcome touch of diversity to the game, following the recent reveal of their non-binary identity.

The Valorant community had long craved “pink” and “girly” representation, with many fans creating elaborate fan projects of pink versions of weapon skins, which have garnered significant attention on social media.

When Clove's character design and player card showcased a departure from Valorant's typically darker and grittier aesthetic, opting instead for a lighter and softer colour scheme with shades of purples and pinks, adorned with glowing butterflies, players were ecstatic!

Dubbed a Controller that “plays like a Duelist,” Clove's kit revolves around taking the fight to their opponents.

According to Agent Gameplay Designer Dan Hardison, optimal Clove gameplay is centred around taking risks and “playing with fire”. To neutralise enemy utility and remove them from the round, trading your life can be advantageous. Unlike other Controllers, Clove's raw execution power might be lower, but their post-death contributions encourage a more aggressive playstyle.
