Valorant has revealed its newest Agent to grace the roster of heroes, and that’s Gekko. From Los Angeles, Gekko is the tactical shooter’s newest Initiator, and he has a complete host of cute talents to indicate off throughout a match.
Very similar to Skye’s animal-infused talents which see her utilizing a Tasmanian tiger and a hawk to get the benefit in-game, Gekko’s talents additionally characteristic some distinctive creatures that I can’t wait to see working round.
Gekko’s talents confronted a novel problem throughout growth, on condition that there was an “further standards within the combine” for them; “every means was additionally one among Gekko’s buddies, characters unto themselves,” says Valorant’s narrative author, Joe Killeen.
Every means rapidly grew to become a creature nickname concurrently, and there we’ve got it. Gekko’s talents, but additionally his buddies, are named Dizzy, Wingman, Thrash, and Mosh, and look awfully cute in Gekko’s launch trailer embedded above.
Gekko’s cute talents work as follows:
Fireplace to ship Dizzy out to hunt enemies. They’ll cost and hearth plasma blasts at enemies of their line of sight, and people hit shall be blinded.
When Dizzy expires, she turns into dormant once more. Work together along with her to reclaim, and reuse Dizzy after a brief cooldown.
Fireplace to ship Wingman out to hunt enemies. Wingman makes use of a concussive blast on the primary enemy he sees.
Alt hearth when concentrating on a Spike website to have Wingman plant the spike; Gekko will need to have the Spike on his particular person for this to work. Or, alt hearth when concentrating on a planted Spike to have Dizzy defuse it.
When Wingman expires, they turn out to be dormant. Work together with it to retrieve the power, and reuse it once more after a brief cooldown.
Fireplace to throw Mosh like a grenade.
Alt hearth to throw Mosh like a grenade, underhand.
When Mosh lands, they duplicate over a big space, and can explode after a short delay.
Fireplace Thrash and use her equally to Skye’s Trailblazer means. Manoeuvre Thrash by an space, and activate Trash to have them lunge ahead at an enemy. They’ll explode and detain any caught enemies in a small radius.
After expiring, retrieve the dormant Thrash to have the ability to reuse the power after a brief cooldown.
I’ve received again into Valorant not too long ago after a number of months away from the sport, and whereas I’ve a love/hate relationship with the newest map, Lotus, Gekko seems to be like he’s going to be quite a lot of enjoyable. Put it this manner, I think about we’ll see Gekko chosen much more than latest Agent, Harbor has been, anyway.
Gekko shall be becoming a member of Valorant’s roster of Brokers when Episode 6 Act 2 launches on March 7.
