With the highly anticipated Episode 3 of Riot Games’ tactical shooter Valorant being just around the corner, fans are looking forward to meeting the upcoming Valorant agent whose identity has not yet been revealed by the developers.
However, it seems like the new agent has been teased by Riot once again, as a teaser that has been revealed during today’s Summer Game Fest live event might be displaying what could possibly be the first looks on the new Valorant agent.
From the initial looks, the teaser seems to be showing a robot agent that has been created by Killjoy. While no official info has been released regarding this new agent by Riot Games, fans are suspecting that this agent might have been created by Killjoy herself to defend against mirrored agents attempting to steal the Earth-1 Radianite.
Earlier today, the official Valorant Twitter account, which seemingly got hacked by Killjoy, posted a cryptic image with the caption, “Variable removed, Alarmbot down,” which further fuels the previous theory.
If you’ve been following us for a while, then you’re probably already aware of the teasers that had been found in the new map Breeze regarding the upcoming agent. In case you haven’t, you can read all about it here.
The upcoming agent, which has been codenamed ‘Grenadier,’ will be introduced to Valorant alongside the Episode 3 update that’s set to arrive around the third week of June.
