EQUIP an ethereal, destructible eye. ACTIVATE to cast the eye a short distance forward. The eye will Nearsight all enemies who look at it.
— In-game description

Leer is a basic ability for Reyna.


Leer is a Blind ability that Reyna must equip before casting. Once equipped, her crosshair will be replaced with an indicator for placing an ethereal eye. The eye will be cast a fixed distance from Reyna's casting position and can travel through terrain. This distance can be reduced if cast against solid, horizontal terrain, in which case will cause the eye to deploy at ground level and not travel further through the ground.

Upon casting, the eye will travel to its location and remain there for a short duration. Any enemy agent who can see the eye's center (i.e. its pupil) will be nearsighted so long as it remains in their field of view. They will also see warning VFX appear on their screen if they are in the eye's line of sight, even if they are not affected by the nearsight. Enemies can deal damage to the eye and destroy it.
