Check out the details on the new leaked Agents of VALORANT!

17:05, 20 Jul 2020

VALORANT players are enjoying the antics of playing as Jett, Sage & Viper to name but a few, but what do we know about those Agents yet to be released? 

In recent VALORANT newsPlayerIGN has gathered some amazing intel on brand-new leaked VALORANT characters.

Joule

Joule appears to be an Agent who utilises electricity, much like Wattson of Apex Legends. Their skill items can be seen below in a render. The shock grenade is self-explanatory but may stick to walls. The "seakerbot" looks to be a recon instrument, and will probably fly to try to find enemies. Unseen is a 3rd ability named 'Blink' which may turn out to be a Signature or an Ultimate.

Shatter

Shatter appears to be a Mirage-like character (Apex Legends) with a decoy ability. Below is a tweet from PlayerIGN showing the aiming the grenade render animation.

Killjoy/Bombshell

Killjoy may be an offensive yet sneaky character, "ruining the joy" of other players by perhaps having a loot-stealing or credit-stealing ability, or perhaps powers related to stopping other characters abilities in their tracks, or not being affected by them.

PlayerIGN has recently found evidence of Killjoy's "bot" in the files called Nano Storm Bot. Also found were indications that Kiljoy is actually named "Bombshell".

More leaks pertaining to the electricity aspect of Killjoy have been found, including lightning VFX animations.

PlayerIGN comments that "Killjoy has been updated every patch since Reyna's release", meaning they could very well be the new VALORANT agent.

Crusader

Judging by this name, Crusader may wield a deadlier melee weapon, and be a Tank with more armour than others, with the ability to give extra armour to his teammates.

Dogbot

We hope this will be a dog-robot-hybrid character, with abilities leading to him "sniffing out" the enemies or following tracks. 

Vampire

Vampire ended up being the newly announced Agent Reyna (we think). 

Looking like she may have been a life-leeching Agent who takes health and armour from opponents in their abilities or attacks in the leaks, Reyna's abilities lean on regenerating health and temporary invulnerability.

You can check out the full YouTube video on the leaks by PlayerIGN below.

PlayerIGN has also released an image of the silhouette for the new character, due to be introduced in Act 2 of VALORANT

While the image itself doesn't give too much away, we do see some sort of floppy fringe and gun hanging off their back. At first glance, this could be either a female or male Agent, again, giving us no clues as to whether this is Joule, Killjoy, or anyone else leaked by PlayerIGN previously.
