Sage Counters Valorant
To counter Sage, first you must know Sage. Sage's main defensive ability is the Barrier Orb, which creates a solid wall to defend her team and obstruct yours. Her other ability is the Slow Orb, which creates a slick of ice path that slows you down.
The name of Sage's game is spacing and control, so if you use Agents with high mobility, you can reduce how effective her field control will be.
Jett's Updraft skill lets her jump over barriers and her Tailwind lets her avoid the Slow ice. Omen's teleport also works well, letting you bypass all the obstructions Sage can throw out.
A trick to get through the slow ice is to repeatedly jump over it. You won't be slowed while you're in the air, and you'll reduce the ice crunching sound when you cross over.
