Sova is one of the best initiators in Valorant and has proven effective on most maps in the game. He’s not a Lotus frontrunner, but the Agent could still put in a decent performance with enough varied lineups to surprise opponents.
Essentially, learning the lineup to properly utilize his Reveal will give your team the information they need. Nevertheless, it takes time to find them and get used to them, and you will have to spend hours practicing them in your custom game. For the sake of clarity, the following section contains a list of the best things you can learn.
This list is in no particular order.
Ten B site reveal (attack)
If your team plans to commit to the B site during an attack, this Reveal line-up can be very useful. This may not seem so easy to learn, but with 5 to 10 minutes of practice he can get the hang of it.
To start, you need to be positioned above the first box in front of the attacker’s spawn and stick to the wall. After doing this, he should align the Owl Drone icon and place his one bar of darts as shown in the image. This will bring up the site.
9 Site B Recapture Released (Defense)
B Site Retake Reveal from B Upper is a simple and effective lineup. This reveals the location of all enemies on your site and you only need to worry about those that are towards the A main and A link.
If you want to do it, peek a little from the B upper and release the darts with a full charge to complete an easy lineup. Be careful though, as a little more range can expose you from the B main and can easily be killed by opponents holding an angle.
8 Publish site tree (attack)
The tree is usually where the defenders sit, so learning the same reveal while the team is planning to run the A site can have surprising effects. With it, teammates can swing open the door if the opponent is playing in a specific location.
To learn A Site Tree Reveal, peek a little to the right of A Rubble and place your crosshairs on the greenish pattern on the opposite wall. Then the darts can be fully charged and used with double bounce.
7 Main Reveal (Defense)
This is the most basic A main reveal of Valorant’s Lotus map and can be used to prepare your team for an A run from an attacker as soon as the round starts. Teammates can even jump over the revolving door to get a kill if an opponent appears near the revolving door.
At the start of the round, move slightly to the right from the wall in front of you for a full charge reveal. Your opponent will usually not be able to grab this, but after a few rounds they may expect you to use this, so you should mix things up.
6 Tree Recapture Reveal (Defense)
Reclaiming an A in a post-plant situation can be difficult, and teams must meticulously clear angles to achieve it. Including A Retake Reveal in your playbook will give you an idea of your opponent’s position on the site, so it might come into the clutch.
To do this, stick to the starting point on the left side of the wall and set the crosshair between the leaf patches. The problematic element here is jumping first and then releasing the dart with a single tap with very little charge.
Five Main Reveal (Attack)
Many players on the defensive side tend to play aggressively on the A site and try to push the A main at the start of the round. As a result, studying this A Main Reveal can help you know where those who are ready to take the lead are.
To line up your darts, stick to the left side of the round start barrier and aim for the bottom of the leaf-like structure. When it comes to charging, you should definitely run 2 bars. This is because if it falls below or exceeds it, it will miss the target.
Four C site reveal (attack)
As teams prepare to storm the C site, they need to know the public information on the C site to provide important information about the opponents present on the C site. Keeping that lineup in mind reduces the number of angles you have to check.
This Reveal is relatively easier than most other Reveals and should be moved to the corner of the box in C Main. Then position the crosshairs towards the entrance like in the picture above, and finally 2 bounces to full charge and run the lineup.
3 C Main Reveal (Defense)
An early C main reveal can help confirm enemy presence on the C site. You can adopt a simple lineup to achieve the same thing, but if not, you also have the option of learning other running variations.
A simpler and commonly used method is to position yourself towards the roundstart barrier and look left until you see a leaf pixel on the screen. Then, after properly positioning the crosshair, the dart can be fully charged and released.
2 C Backsight Reveal (Attack)
Apart from the C-site reveals above, you can learn C-backsight reveals to know if your opponent is waiting behind your sight area. It’s a particularly stingy place to clear, and with this Reveal your teammates will know what they have to face.
This lineup should start in a similar position to the C site and go a little further until you can see the opposite wall. After that, all he has to do is use a fully charged dart and bounce it once.
1 Recapture of Site C (Defense)
If you’re approaching the C site for a retake from the waterfall side, use this awesome Reveal to help your team. Teammates and you can use the Flash to regain control of the site and attempt to disarm the Spike.
While trying to do this, you’ll need to stick to the wall and move slightly to the left until you see water running down. Once the crosshairs are aligned correctly, perform a 2 bounce full charge release to locate the enemy on sight.
