Chapter 2 trailer of Valorant featured agent 14

The trailer showcased what the fans can expect from the yet to release agent by enacting a bombsite retake situation. The duo of Agent 14 and Phoenix find themselves outnumbered by the attacking team on ‘Icebox’.

Phoenix lays out a desperate call for the new agent, but it seems like he needs a bit more time to reach the bombsite. It leaves him with no choice other than to take on the enemy while Agent 14 pleads him to practice restraint.

This character houses abilities that grant him invisibility, allowing him to engage enemies safely. He can teleport around the battlefield and possesses abilities that can help him disengage immediately. The trailer does not confirm his entire kit of abilities aside from the ultimate ability and teleportation.

It is still not clear whether the new agent will have a flash that resembles CS: GO flashbang grenades. Although, developers can make changes to the character as the trailer only revealed a few things.

One certain thing is that the new character will serve as a power creep that can make or break the game. How will he truly affect the meta?
