VALORANT 6.02 Update Patch Notes: Leaks reveal a new VALORANT Agent and many more changes
Valorant typically adds new agents to its meta after every few acts, keeping the tactical experience of the game fresh and exciting. The newest Controller Agent, Harbor, was added to the pool in Episode 5 Act 3, which ended last month.
Following the usual trend, Smokedancer (Agent 22, according to Riot’s counter) could come into play in the 2nd or 3rd act of Episode 6. Valorant’s current agent roster has 20 powerful features. Each one has its own four abilities and nurtures a unique playstyle. Action-hero has 4 Agent classes, players can choose from six duelists, five Initiators, five Controllers, and four Sentinels.
As Fans know, the Sentinel class has received the least amount of development attention till now. So fans can expect the new agent to be a Sentinel, adding a new defense meta to the game. However, Riot Games may deviate from expected trends by introducing a new Initiator, Duelist, or Controller.
