Leaks point towards the addition of a new agent, ‘Deadeye’, in Valorant with Act 2

Exciting times await the player base of Valorant, as the next act won’t just bring a new map. More rumors have been making rounds in the community that suggest another agent is going to roll out soon.

Few weeks ago, the studio announced delays in the launch of Act 2 as the studio is working on something fantastic. The confirmation of the new map isn’t the only surprise as a new agent, ‘Deadeye’, might be in the pipeline as well.

The aforementioned trailer for the new map also showcased something interesting in form of a bullet. This tiny shrapnel managed to have an immense impact on the game. Incidentally, the rumored agent also possesses a massive weapon that is said to breach walls and other objects with ease. The shrapnel carried the pink color, reminiscent of an existing agent ‘Astra’ that is currently in the pool.

Everything points at the inclusion of a breacher that can decimate walls and attack enemies from a vast distance. However, it should not be an easy to execute skill that can guarantee kills with no effort. A counterplay to Sage and Astra’s wall is definitely needed, but nothing has been confirmed just yet.

The game has welcomed a range of new characters, but nothing has been added to sentinels class. Act 2 of episode 3 would be the perfect opportunity for the studio to rectify that error.
