Valorant Agent 21 has apparently been leaked and the character looks to be an alternate Controller to Viper in the meta.

A screenshot posted to Twitter by showcased the apparent Agent's abilities while standing in the Practice tool. Viper has dominated the meta as one of, if not the best Controller in the game thanks to her robust kit. Looking at the abilities in the leak, Agent 21 should provide an alternate and perhaps even a competitor to Viper's place in the meta.

Here's a look at the abilities in the leak:

  • Vision Taker - Equip a distortion wall launcher. Fire to create a small line of distortion. Enemies will get briefly blinded if they walk through
  • Tartarus Pit - Equip a Tartarus charger. Fire to launch a crippling shot that deals some damage and slows players within its zone
  • Bubble - Equip Bubble and enter into a phased state to place down a bubble by pressing the ability key. Activate to create an impenetrable bubble. Bullets cannot pass through
  • Golem - Equip the Golem doll. Fire to throw down the doll. All teams in the radius will get a regeneration buff and enemies will get a decay debuff. Lasts for the duration or until destroyed by enemies

Agent 21's kit is dynamic to say the least, and looking at them on the surface hints at what type of role this character might play. Vision Taker acts like a smaller Viper wall and instead of decaying enemies, it will blind them which boasts more robust utility. For Bubble, the size of the sphere is unknown as well as its transparency. Golem looks to be a more dynamic Killjoy ultimate buffing and crippling enemies instead of forcing them out of an area.

The Agent 21 leak remains unconfirmed by Riot Games. If the leaks end up being true, this would be the 20th character released in Valorant.
