Valorant’s next new agent will arrive later in Episode 5. From her leaked codename to her rumored abilities, this is all we know about the mysterious newcomer.
It’s almost time for Valorant’s roster to grow once again.
With a storm of new characters released since the game officially launched on June 2nd, 2020, there is never much time for players to rest on their laurels.
Fade, a radiant initiator, is the newest addition, but she won’t have the award for much longer as Agent 21 should be joining the fight later this year.
Valorant Agent 21’s leaked codename
As reported by ValorLeaks, Agent 21’s codename is magician.
This is a term with direct ties to Riot Games’ other gaming juggernauts, and could potentially hint at further overlap between the two titles like Neon and Zeri.
It’s currently unknown just how far League of Legends’ influence might reach, but given that magic is already such a prominent element of Valorant’s skill system, it wouldn’t be too surprising if another agent used primal powers similar to Omen .
Valorant Agent 21 rumored skills
It’s too early to jump to too many conclusions, but since Astra was the last controller to be added to the list, it sure seems like the right time to add another.
If that’s the case, the new character like Brimstone or Viper will likely keep the smokers a team and take care of pesky line of sight.
Controllers also usually come with a useful ability, like a Stim Beacon or an Omen TP, but given the long range, there’s no telling what the Magical Mystery Agent will bring.
Valorant Agent 21 release window
Best of previous release schedules, the newcomer likely won’t come until Episode 5 Act 2 is released at some point August 24, 2022.
This gives players ample time to get used to the shiny new Pearl card before having to deal with yet another fresh face to come on stage and steal their RR.
