Valorant is a first-person shooter developed by Riot Games. Every agent in Valorant is unique and, if their abilities are mastered, can be very dangerous. That said, Sova is a really difficult agent to master. You need really good map knowledge for using his abilities. Sova is useful on every map, but he can shine on Bind the most. Since Bind is comparatively a smaller map, this allows Sova to gain more intel every round.

Sova is an agent that delivers tons of intel on your opponets. Your main objective as Sova is to scan for enemies and find out where to push them. Sova can be used to gather intel and at the same time deal tons of damage through walls. Sova has four special abilities: Recon Bolt, Shock Bolt, Owl Drone, and Hunter's Fury.

Recon Bolt:

Sova’s first ability is Recon Bolt. Basically, you equip a bow with a recon bolt. After the bolt collides with a surface, it reveals the location of nearby enemies who are in line of sight of the bolt. You can bounce the bolt off walls, which will prevent you from directly peeking at enemies. Be careful, as the bolts can easily be destroyed.

Shock Bolt:

Sova’s second ability is Shock Bolt. It basically equips a bow with an electric arrow, and the mechanics is pretty similar to how the recon bolt works. The player shoots the bolt and, upon collision, it creates a radius of shock that damages enemies. You can bounce the shock bolt as well, which helps you avoid getting shot.

Owl Drone:

Sova’s third ability is Owl Drone. This ability grants you an owl drone. You can control the drone’s movement as well. The drone can also shoot a dart that reveals the location of enemies for about ten seconds. This drone is very useful in gathering intel and can help your team greatly if used right.

Hunter's Fury:

Sova’s ultimate ability is Hunter's Fury. This ability takes up seven ultimate orbs to use and allows Sova to equip a bow with a really long range shot. These shots go through walls, dealing tons of damage and revealing the location of enemies when hit. You can use Hunter’s Fury three times until the timer runs out.
