Valorant Episode 6 Act 2 has been launched right now (March 8) and introduces Gekko, a brand new agent that may remotely plant or defuse a planted Spike bomb.
Developer Riot Games has shared that Gekko is designed as an initiator-class agent, that means he’s greatest suited to creating the opening play in a firefight. Gekko’s 4 skills are named after the “calamitous creatures” they use, and his normal package is basically damage-oriented.
His Q potential, Wingman, sends Wingman out to run towards the primary enemy he sees to difficulty a concussive blast. However, Wingman may also be focused at a Spike website to both plant or defuse an explosive, relying on whether or not Gekko is on the attacking or defending aspect.
Gekko’s E, Dizzy, is a floating orb that fires plasma at opponents, blinding anybody she hits.
The agent’s C potential, Mosh Pit, throws Mosh as a grenade, whose preliminary explosion is adopted by a second blast after a brief delay.
Finally, Gekko’s final potential is Thrash. Gekko can “link with Thrash’s mind” to information her throughout the map, earlier than re-activating the flexibility to sprint ahead and explode.
For all skills besides Mosh, Gekko can get an additional cost of every potential if he goes to reclaim whichever creature he has thrown.
Elsewhere, Valorant‘s Episode 6 Act 2 also expands on 2020’s Oni beauty line, with new skins for the Bulldog, Vandal, Frenzy and Ares weapons together with a brand new Oni Katana.
