The Best Sova Lineups On Ascent

The Best Sova Lineups On Ascent

Overview

Here are the best Sova lineups on Ascent, enjoy!

Sova is one of the best Initiator agents if you know how to use his abilities correctly. But do you know how to use the abilities properly? Have you learned your lineups for every map? No? Then you’re in the right place.

Attacking A Site With Sova on Ascent

Lineup #1 (Recon Bolt)

We'll start with a cheeky lineup for Recon Bolt that covers most of A site 

You need to aim for the tip where the white lines meet and fire a one bar charged Recon Bolt. The lineup will land above the Generator on A site and reveal most of the A Site.

Lineup #2 (Recon Bolt)

Next up, a lineup for A Hell:

Get in the corner under A Rafters, and crouch. Aim for the middle of the top on the boxes and give the lineup two bounces while fully charged. This lineup bounces off the wall and lands onto A Rafters, perfect for revealing those lurkers.

Lineup #3 (Shock Dart)

Okay, this next one is from A Main to Heaven, and it’s great for the Shock Dart 

from A Main to Heaven

For this one you need to be in A Main and guide yourself along the wall edging the wooden box. Aim for the middle of the cable above it and charge the lineup with three bars and one bounce. The lineup lands on A Heaven and it can do some nasty damage. 

Lineup #4 (Shock Dart)

Lastly, a post plant Shock Dart:

To execute this you need to align yourself against this purple door in A Main and look up at the sky; your crosshair needs to be between these two pointy edges. Fire the lineup with minimal charge, not even one bar, and it should go over the wall and onto the default plant spot.

Attacking B Site With Sova on Ascent

Lineup #1 (Recon Bolt)

For this first Recon Bolt lineup, just aim at the top of the tree through the window in B Main and charge it fully.

It lands on the tree behind B Site and scans out the entire area.

Lineup #2 (Recon Bolt)

But what if we want to target the Market? Well, from the same spot in B Main, you can get a good Recon Bolt lineup that clears out all of the close corners on the right side.

All you need to do is aim for the corner of this white rectangle with the giraffe picture and charge the lineup with one bar.

Defending A Site With Sova on Ascent

Lineup #1 (Recon Bolt)

Right those are our best for attack, let’s look at what we can do when we’re on the defense. This is the most essential Recon Bolt because it scans out A Main and A Lobby

Defending A Site With Sova on Ascent

Go to the end of A Rafters and aim for this corner of the building with a fully charged Recon Bolt. Easy and effective, right?

Lineup #2 (Recon Bolt)

Next up, a lineup strictly for retaking A Site.

Recon Bolt Sova Retake

Aim the fully charged lineup at the metal corner. If it sticks there it scans most of the A site. Another very straightforward to execute and super effective lineup.

Lineup #3 (Shock Dart)

Right, this next one is for Shock Dart from A Hell, and it’s a personal favorite for how tricky it can be. Note that this lineup can be used for both Recon and Shock Darts.

It works in the same way too, with a fully charged dart and two bounces at this position.  Aim for the middle of the top of the crate, where the cable is, and you should get some great intel. 

Lineup #4 (Shock Dart)

Let's finish defending the A Site with a Shock Dart for a default plant spot.

Lineup #4 (Shock Dart)

Aim for the corner below the steel bar and give the lineup a one bar charge. The bolt lands right on top of the default plant spot, fast enough to stop or kill the planter.

Seriously this one comes in clutch all the time and can even work for Attackers.

Defending B Site With Sova on Ascent

Lineup #1 (Recon Bolt)

This lineup is one of the best Recon Bolt spots at B Main. Stand in the corner next to the box on the B Site. Align the top of the charge rectangle with the top of this lamp. Aim a bit to the left of this steel bar in the window. 

Give the lineup a one bar charge, and it should scan most of B Main and towards Mid Link.

Lineup #2 (Recon Bolt)

Align the edges of the charge rectangle with these buildings behind it. Give the lineup a three-bar charge, but but not fully. 

This lineup scans both Mid Link and Mid Courtyard, giving you insane value at the start of a round.

Lineup #3 (Recon Bolt)

This is the most simple and most effective Recon Bolt lineup for retakes because it scans most of the Site except the backside

Recon Bolt Lineup

Aim for the top of this tree with a fully charged lineup and throw. That's it. It really is that easy, but it's great because it's easy to execute even in the heat of the moment.

Lineup #4 (Shock Dart)

And With this one you can do a double Shock Dart lineup that is fast enough to not get dodged. Stand in the corner next to the box in Lane towards Defender Spawn. Aim a bit to the right of the top of this lamp after the edge of the wall. 

Shock Dart My Favorite lineup

Give the lineup two bounces and charge it with three bars but not fully. The Shock Dart bounces to the back of the site and lands on the default plant spot.

And that’s it. All the lineups for our favorite agent: Sova. If you want to check out all the other lineups that we have for our Russian hunter, check out our other articles:
