Is Valorant getting a new Agent?

Valorant Episode 3 Act 2 saw a number of changes added to the game, and fans are anticipating the release of a new Agent for Episode 3 Act 3.

Some fans had however hoped that Riot would be introducing a new Agent to the game in Episode 3 Act 2, however, the major change was the introduction of the Fracture map to the game.

According to recent leaks, it appears as though there will be a new Agent introduced as part of Episode 3 Act 3.

Valorant Episode 3 Act 3 – New Agent Leaked

Some of the bigger names in the Valorant data mining and leaker community have confirmed that Agents 17 and 18 are expected to be released in the coming updates.

@ValorLeaks, @Floxay and @Shiick have all pointed to Agent 17, codename Deadeye, being released as part of Episode 3 Act 3.

Another codename was also found in the code for the game, although Agent Sprinter is looking more like an arrival for Valorant Episode 4 Act 1.

Is Valorant getting a new Agent?

Codename: Deadeye

The release of Deadeye has been a long time coming, with data miners first finding the name for the new Agent in the game’s code back in June 2021.

Deadeye was first teased in Valorant’s One Year Anthem, where a brief glitch in the video pictured a character holding a sniper rifle.

Fans and leakers believe this to be Deadeye, who bears a resemblance to the character Midas from Fortnite.

Abilities

It’s impossible to state what abilities Deadeye will have at this point, however there are a couple of theories that fans are suggesting that would appear to make sense.

Some Valorant fans believe that Deadeye is Agent Sova’s ‘counterpart’ from the Mirror-verse in the meta. This would appear to make sense, as Deadeye appears to have a scar on his eye and he utilizes a rifle.

Again this is not something that Riot themselves have confirmed, so we will have to wait for an official word on how the new Agent fits into the lore.

There are already what appear to be teasers for the new Agent on the Fracture map, however we expect that Riot will be giving away more teasers as we head towards November and the expected release date for Episode 3 Act 3.
