Sova (codename Hunter) is an Agent in VALORANT.


Sova tracks, finds, and eliminates enemies with ruthless efficiency and precision. His custom bow and incredible scouting abilities ensure that even if you run, you cannot hide [1].

An archery expert, he can equip his bow with different bolts that reveal enemy locations or shock nearby adversaries. He can also deploy a recon drone to survey the battlefield, while his ultimate lets him fire three deadly arrow shots through walls [2].

Originally, Sova was supposed to be a female and was supposed to have a visor.

Update History

  • Sova Model
    • Updated the physics on Sova’s cape so that it should wiggle outside his hitbox less frequently
    • Polish work on Sova’s 1P hands to bring them up to the fidelity bar of the rest of our agents


  • Sova's Owl Drone.png Owl Drone now includes a layer of sound for engine rotors.
    • Audio should better reflect thematics, while maintaining how noticeable the previous version of Owl Drone audio was for allies and enemies, as heard in 3rd-person.
  • Sova’s Hunter's Fury.png Hunter’s Fury foe coloring added
  • Fixed multiple spots where Sova’s Recon Bolt.png Recon Dart could over-penetrate map geometry—another shout out to everyone that helped with these as well!




  • Sova's Owl Drone ability was originally the ability Drone Dart for the scrapped agent, Joules.
