The Valorant Agent 24 is gearing up to join the existing lineup. Riot Games had strategized to introduce three agents throughout the year. The inaugural member of this trio, Gekko, was unveiled in February during VCT LOCK//IN. Following Gekko, Deadlock entered the scene at the onset of Episode 7. Now, the community eagerly awaits the arrival of the third and final addition to the Valorant roster.

The introduction of the new duelist comes as no complete surprise. Riot Games had laid the groundwork for this anticipation at the start of 2023 by revealing their intention to release three agents throughout the year, each assigned to distinct roles: Initiator, Sentinel, and, as now officially confirmed, a duelist.
The abilities have not been revealed by Riot Games so far. However, As per the Valorant official blog, Riot is emphasizing a shift toward a more gunfight-oriented approach for the upcoming Agent. Based on this information, it’s reasonable to speculate that the agent’s abilities may not be centred on causing direct damage but rather on gaining tactical advantages, likewise Reyna’s playstyle.
Valorant Upcoming Agent 24 nationality
We don’t know much about the new agent in Valorant, but fans are guessing based on a picture on Valorant’s blog. The picture shows the agent eating hotpot, a common dish in East Asia, especially China. But, there’s a twist – the caption mentions “Duck Blood,” a dish from Poland. So, even though the agent is eating Chinese food, they might actually be from Poland. It’s a bit confusing, but that’s what makes it interesting!
