Valorant players divided over Iso’s “underrated” Ultimate
After many hours of testing, Valorant players shared their first impressions on the use of Iso’s Ultimate. Find out if Valorant fans called it overpowered or useless.
In addition to bringing a decent amount of fresh content such as new Battle Pass rewards and a new bundle of skins, Valorant Episode 7 Act 3 introduced Agent 24, named Iso. This bounty hunter has a set of unique abilities, which captured the attention of all players.
However, none were as striking as his Ultimate, “Kill Contract.” This ability takes Iso and the target rival to a parallel dimension for a duel to the death from which only one player will survive.
After a week since Iso’s release, many players have different opinions about the possible uses of Iso’s Ultimate. Some think it is useless, while others make the most of it, down to the smallest advantage.
Valorant community split on Iso’s Ultimate
A Valorant player made a Reddit post and shared their thoughts about Iso’s Ultimate, “I don’t think it’s that amazing,” and they only believe it has two potential uses. The first is entering a site that luckily has only one player defending it. The second option this player found is in a 1v1 situation where they need to quickly kill the enemy in order to defuse the Spike.
Another user quickly countered what was posted and added that the ability to yoink an enemy off the map is “underrated.” In addition, they mentioned that in site entries, even if there are two or three enemies, if you use Iso’s Ultimate, you can leave your team in a temporary advantage of 4v1 or 4v2, which increases the chances of easily entering the site.
Finally, another player commented that many are “overlooking” the fact that Iso’s Ultimate heals both players to 100%, so if you are using Iso and have low health, the best thing you can do is take an enemy with you to engage in a duel with 100 HP.
However, it’s worth noting that once you or your enemy return from the parallel dimension, both will have the same amount of HP you had when you activated the Ultimate. On the other hand, if the enemy is also heavily damaged, they will also receive a 100 HP heal to participate in the Kill Contract’s duel.
As you can see, there are many ways to use Iso’s Ultimate in Valorant; it’s just a matter of practicing compositions and combos in each match. The truth is that Iso was released just a week ago, and time, as well as Riot Games’ updates, will determine whether the ultimate is very useful or if it’s better to use the abilities of other Agents instead.
