We’re only a couple of days away from the much-anticipated Episode 3 in Riot Games’ tactical shooter Valorant, and fans are already excited to know more about what’s arriving in the upcoming update.
Apart from the plethora of new content that the title is about to receive in the Episode 3 update, what fans are looking forward to most is perhaps the introduction of the new Valorant agent.
Valorant Agent 16, who has been nicknamed ‘Grenadier’ in the game files, is set to be introduced alongside the Episode 3 update. Here’s everything that you need to know about the agent:
Valorant Agent 16 Teaser and First Looks
A few days ago, Riot Games had released a teaser of the upcoming Agent through the official Valorant Twitter handle. The Twitter account, which seemingly got hacked by Killjoy, posted a cryptic image with the caption, “Variable removed, Alarmbot down.” This has led players to suspect that the upcoming agent might have been created by Killjoy herself.
Teasers had also been found in the new map Breeze which you can check out here.
Agent 16 was teased once again during the Summer Game Fest live event on June 10th. From the initial looks of it, the teaser seems to be showing a robot agent. 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.
Valorant Agent 16 Abilities
No official details have been revealed by Riot Games regarding the abilities of Agent 16 as of yet. Judging by the previous teasers, many fans are suspecting that this agent will possess some sort of an ability that will disable the abilities of other agents.
Valorant Agent 16 Release Date
As mentioned earlier, the new Valorant agent is set to hit the live servers alongside the Episode 3 update. Valorant Episode 3 is scheduled to arrive on June 22, 2021. It’ll bring a bunch of new changes to the title including competitive revamps, skin bundles, and more.
