Read on for all the details…

Yates the Reclaimer: Sidestep or Get Rekt

Hailing from the frigid lands of Campestria, Yates is a Captain who specializes in reeling in unsuspecting victims with his A ability, Wolf’s Maw.

Follow up a successful Wolf’s Maw with a stun and your high-powered carries will delete anyone who’s too slow on the sidestep or Reflex Block.

OP engagements aren’t Yates’ only trick, though, as he is an impactful crowd controller: Keep enemies in check with his B ability, Overwhelm, to create a shockwave in the area around him, stunning affected enemies.

Provide emergency assistance or engage from across Sovereign’s Rise or Halcyon Fold by using Yates’ ultimate ability, Iron Mandate, to leap to any location on the map, slowing and damaging any enemies you land on.

Yates is only unlockable with ICE for the first 14 days. After that, you’ll be able to unlock him with ICE or Glory.
