valorant‘s newest agent, Gekko, has been revealed. The newest Agent got its first preview during the finals of Riot’s Valorant Champions Tour Lock//In Tournament in Brazil on Saturday. The reveal included a trailer showing off Gekko’s appearance and abilities, which usually come in the form of his cuddly friends who help him during matches.
Gekko is an Initiator, which means he has skills that help him get to sites and gain benefits. Among those abilities are a blind and a detection ability, both of which should give him a bit of information and cover as he heads into battle. He also has an ability that allows him to remotely plant or defuse bombs by sending one of his creature friends to do it for him.
All this should give Gekko one of the most unique kits valorant until now, but to get a full picture of his abilities you can read their descriptions below:
