The game currently has 11 playable agents, with the next one likely to drop soon. New agents are to drop with each act, which figures to three agents every episode.

Valorant’s lead character designer Ryan “Morello” Scott revealed on his Twitch stream that the developers will be nerfing both Raze and Sage. The combination of both agents has been devastating for opponents. In order to tackle that, Riot Games are going to lower their ultimate effects, without losing out too much.

Valorant – possible new agent leak

Previously, the new patch came with possible leaks for the agent “Killjoy.” The agent was supposed to be a technical mastermind with controls over drones. The leak brought in many details, but the agent we are talking about this time is someone different.

Valorant Express discovered some audio files which are likely of an agent named “Shatter.” The Shatter agent files have been present in the game since its beta. However, the agent is yet to be officially announced. 

The agent comes with the clone ability, meaning he can create multiple versions of himself. A trickster ability that would easily help the agent take down opponents. The audio file seems to be of that very ability.

Another unreleased agent that Valorant Express talked about was Crusader. A shielding ability would allow him to wield a shield to block damage. The shield could also be thrown but it will break eventually, with or without player intervention. The agent would also have had a throw-able grenade in his arsenal.

A fan’s response tweet, however, revealed that Crusader was an early prototype of Breach, as confirmed by Morello. It seems Riot had many ideas for Breach and finally settled on what players see today.

Valorant Express also found a soundtrack in the dev audio files. The track has never been heard before in-game and could be a new addition.

With all the leaks dropping in, the game is surely getting the hype. It is unclear when the said agents or changes will debut.
