As the Episode 3 update approaches, players are understandably excited and impatient to learn more about the new Valorant agent. As dedicated gamers often do, a Twitter user appears to have unearthed a juicy detail after discovering the agent’s teaser video on the map Breeze. This leak was first spotted by Dualshockers
The teaser was added after the recent Patch 2.11 and involves an intriguing interaction when using the agent’s knife. The clip uploaded by Twitter user @cynprel shows the knife reacting with the Radianite found within a green crate.
Cynprel posits that this could be an ability that disables those of other agents. This would certainly be in line with what Riot has teased so far, promising players that they will occasionally have to rely solely on their shooting skills.
Of course, this is merely a snippet of what the upcoming agent can do, and we don’t know how long they can inhibit other abilities just yet. However, a well-known data miner in the community, called floxay, also uncovered several tags related to the next Agent that may provide some clues.
The tags are:
- Assist. Suppression
Undoubtedly, we can expect suppression in some form, whether that relates to abilities or something else entirely. floxay also mentions that the Valorant agent arriving in Episode 3 has the codename Grenadier. Whilst these details hardly provide us with the whole picture, it certainly whets the appetite ahead of the Episode 3 update and the arrival of the 16th agent.
In the meantime, if you fancy trying Valorant to see what all the fuss is about, you can download the game for free from the official Valorant website. Meanwhile, if you missed our news earlier today, every player is set to receive the Duality player card following redemption issues over the past few days.
