New Agent: Skye

Skye has an Australian accent, and she can control various animals through her abilities. Therefore, in my opinion, Skye is like the ‘redheaded stepchild’ of Steve Irwin. She will be playable starting October 27th.

Abilities

  • Regrowth- Allies are healed within a radius.
  • Trailblazer- This ability allows you to use a Tasmanian Tiger to find enemies and concuss them. Enemies can stop the tiger by shooting at it.
  • Guiding Light- You can control a hawk to blind enemies with a bright light.
  • Seekers- You can summon seekers to make up to three enemies see only within a limited radius.
