Valorant has done a great job at pushing out new content. Whether that be maps, skins or playable agents. They set themselves to a good schedule so that just as the player base begins to want something new, they drop large amounts of new content to keep interest. They keep this content close to the chest for the most part prior to release, but some information on future content does get out from time to time.
Valorant Agent 17: What We Know So Far
The next agent that will come to Valorant will be its' 17th. Players know very little about this new agent so far. All that has been released is a codename and a few teasers, some of which may not even be related to the new agent.
The codename associated with this new agent is "Deadeye." Little is known about what his name means for his kit, except for the large gun, presumably a sniper, seen in the promotional image in the One Year Anthem for Valorant. What role in the game Deadeye will play is also up for debate. Most have decided between Duelist or Initiator due to the large role the sniper seen alongside him will probably play, but that is all speculation. Riot has done a great job keeping information about this agent under wraps, which has only heightened the excitement for him to come to the game. Deadeye will likely see entry into Valorant in late September to mid October, so until those dates get closer players will have to keep speculating on the identity and abilities of the mysterious Agent 17.
