Omen's abilities may seem simple when viewed from a surface level. However, the agent has a high skill level in order for him to be played well.

His Ultimate Ability seems like something that dreams are made of, sure. But, the ability can sometimes bring Omen back into a sticky situation. Careful planning is needed with that one.

  • Ability 1 — Shrouded Step (150 Creds): EQUIP a shadow walk ability and see its range indicator. FIRE to begin a brief channel, then teleport to the marked location.
  • Ability 2 — Paranoia (300 Creds): INSTANTLY fire a shadow projectile forward, briefly reducing the vision range of all players it touches. This projectile can pass straight through walls.
  • Signature Ability — Dark Cover (100 Creds, 1 free, 40s recharge): EQUIP a shadow orb and see its range indicator. FIRE to throw the shadow orb to the marked location, creating a long-lasting shadow sphere that blocks vision. HOLD ALTERNATE FIRE while targeting to move the marker further away. HOLD the ability key while targeting to move the marker closer.
  • Ultimate Ability — From the Shadows (7 Points): EQUIP a tactical map. FIRE to begin teleporting to the selected location. While teleporting, Omen will appear as a Shade that can be destroyed by an enemy to cancel his teleport.

Omen Playstyle

As a shadow hunter, it only makes sense that the element of surprise is what's key to his abilities. Shrouded Step is a great ability which can be used to get the jump on a site and surprise enemies in a fight. It can also be used as a great escape tool if timed correctly.


Using both that ability and Shrouded Step can cause a whole bunch of chaos in-game. It means that Omen is able to teleport right behind enemies and get some sneaky kills.

Flashes in Valorant are always pretty strong. However, Paranoia in Omen's kit is something else. It really gives the edge on his kit by being able to scope out the camper hiding in the corner and run to get some control.

The capabilities of this agent as a damage outputter and a control agent really is unlike any other agent in the game. A fun agent, for sure.
