If the spycam is shot down by an enemy, it has a cooldown of 45 seconds after which the ability gets recharged. If Cypher players decide to pickup the camera, it gets a cooldown of 15 seconds before they can place the Spycam again.

Sage is another Sentinel in Valorant, but she plays more of a support role in Valorant. Her signature ability is Healing Orb, which she can use to heal herself, but it takes twice as long than it would if she used the ability on her allies.

Sage's ability heals 60HP over over seconds when used on an ally and 10 seconds to heal the same amount of HP when used on herself. There is a cooldown of 45 seconds on this signature ability. Alternate fire heals Sage while using the left-click when the crosshair is on an ally whose health is low heals them.
