Neon as a duelist has many unique advantages. First, Neon has a large damage output because of its ultimate. By shooting lasers at enemies, players are able to kill these enemies quickly.

The combination of ultimate skills and sprints very good because the ultimate attack has no recoil. Besides the combination with sprints, players can also use grenade skills that provide stun against the enemy, so that it can easily kill the enemy.

Neon as a duelist agent is able to provide control over an area thanks to skill wall-his. This skill can interfere with enemy vision, so Neon can easily enter an area or site.

Skills combination wall with sprints will make it easier for the team to enter into an area or site. Enemies guarding the area or site may be surprised by Neon's speed when entering the area the enemy is guarding.

Like any other agent, Neon also has some drawbacks. First, players must have good and precise aim. Neon's special skill is speed, so players have to adjust their aim according to their speed.

The second weakness is that the Neon grenade skill can bounce and for beginners, this skill is relatively difficult to hit the enemy. If you're not careful, this skill can hit yourself and your teammates, giving a stun to the player who was hit by the grenade.

So, Neon players must be careful in using their grenade skills. Players must adapt to the kit owned by Neon in order to gain an advantage in the game.
