Gameplay

Strategies

Players who play Astra should have good map awareness. Astra can place her Astral Stars before the round starts and she can prepare for different outcomes easily. On defense, her Nova Pulse and Gravity Well abilities are really helpful since it can stop enemies from pushing. On Attack, she can use her Astral Stars for post-plant and she can pull/stun enemies if they try to defuse.

Trivia

Development

  • Astra was leaked early on the VALORANT Russia Youtube channel
  • A now-removed article from a company that worked with Riot Games on Astra's reveal video said that Astra received her Radiant powers from a spirit in Lake Bosumtwi[1]
    • Because this info didn't come from an official Riot or VALORANT source, it should not be taken as canon[2]. However, there are still links between the info shown and info about Astra that is canon, such as the appearance of a lake in her player card.

Lore

  • Astra is from Accra, the capital of Ghana[3].
  • Her golden arm contains her radiant powers[3].
  • Astra's favorite food is Jollof[4].
  • She often doodles in a little sketchbook to help her process her thoughts[5].

Relations

  • Astra has been observing many of VALORANT's agents from afar, being able to uncover some of their secrets[6]
  • Astra is wary and concerned about Reyna, with Astra referring to her as a "creature"[7]
    • "Reyna, just stay in your lane, yawa girl"
    • "Waste that Reyna creature. End her!"
    • "That creature is dead"
