Recently, Valorant developers revealed some exciting details about the upcoming agent for Episode 3, and here’s everything you need to know about it.
Riot Games’ Valorant is one of the most popular first-person shooter games. The competitive esports title boasts several maps along with unique agents. Every agent in Valorant flaunts different abilities that are crucial to the gameplay.

Valorant New Agent Abilities [Episode 3]
Recently, Valorant released a post to talk about the State of the Agents. Besides discussing future balances for the existing agents, devs dropped some interesting information about the upcoming Valorant agent in Episode 3.
Apparently, the agent’s abilities will feel familiar to players who love playing traditional FPS games. That’s because, according to the developers, the new agent will create “moments where you must rely on your gunplay.”
Of course, it’s still too soon to assume anything based on that statement; however, we think that a new agent might be able to pause other agent’s abilities for a few seconds.
Nevertheless, this is only a prediction after reading the above statement from Riot, so take it with a pinch of salt.
Besides that, Valorant devs also revealed a teaser image for the new agent. And thanks to Floxay on Twitter, we know that the image is titled “Data Transfer.” The data miner also revealed a spray from the previous Battlepass, which might be teasing the upcoming agent’s look.
Besides teasing some abilities, Riot confirmed that the new agent would arrive with Patch 3.0.
The next major update will kick off Valorant Episode 3, and it is expected to come out around June 22nd, 2021. So, tighten your seatbelt because we’ll definitely get more leaks for Episode 3 in a couple of days.
