It has only been a few days since the release of Valorant Episode 5 Act 2, and it seems that the fans of the shooter already have something to look forward to seeing in the next Valorant Act. The Episode 5 Act 2 brought with it a bunch of useful quality-of-life features that the players appreciated, but it didn’t include any new Agents or maps. 

However, a new Valorant Agent might just be around the corner, as leaks reveal more information on Valorant’s upcoming Agent 21.

The first details of the mysterious Agent 21 were brought to light by Valorant leaker ‘ValorLeaks’. Back in June 2022, he had confirmed that the Agent 21 will have the codename ‘Mage’. 

It was later revealed via in-game emails that the new Agent’s name would be Varun Batra, and that he’d be of Indian origin.

Recently, the abilities of the next Valorant Agent have been leaked on the internet. However, according to ValorLeaks, these abilities are subject to change at the time of the Agent’s final release

Here are all the abilities of Valorant Agent 21 that have been leaked so far:

  • Vision Taker [C]: EQUIP a distortion wall launcher. FIRE to create a small line of distortion. Enemies will get briefly blinded if they walk through.
  • Tartarus Pit [Q]: EQUIP a Tartarus charger. FIRE to launch a shot that deals some damage and slows players within its zone.

  • Golem [X]: EQUIP the Golem doll. Fire to throw down. All teammates will get a regeneration buff, and enemies will get decay debuff. Lasts for a duration or until destroyed by enemies.

These were all the abilities of Valorant Agent 21 Mage. Since these are still leaks and not confirmed by Riot Games themselves, take them with a grain of salt.
