Anticipation is building high as we are rapidly approaching the release of the final agent in the planned trio following Gekko, and Deadlock. He is the 24th addition to the Valorant protocol. Riot Games has already confirmed the role of the upcoming agent who will be a duelist as we have already got the initiator and sentinel this year. Now, fresh details are emerging regarding Valorant’s upcoming agent code name and guess what? we also got a chance to take a first look at the agent.
VALORANT next agent will be codenamed ‘ISO’
Mike, widely recognized as ValorLeaks, has gained popularity as a prominent leaker within the VALORANT community. Renowned for consistently revealing accurate unreleased content in the past, he has once again shared an image teasing the upcoming Duelist in VALORANT.

While the image shared by Mike may be somewhat blurry, however, you can spot “ISO” written as a character introduction under the Duelist mark. Despite the haziness in the depiction, the distinct ethnic features point towards an Asian heritage for the character. This aligns with the earlier teaser image featuring a Chinese delicacy, further hinting at a connection to Asian culture in the upcoming agent’s design and background.
Agent 24 expected abilities
Riot Games has also dropped a hint about the next agent through a short teaser on their X handle. The teaser showcased a remarkable display of precision, with a bullet piercing the bullseye through a target. The pinpoint accuracy depicted raises speculation that the forthcoming agent may have a connection to firearms—perhaps a sharpshooter? Well, we have to hold our horses and take this information just as a pinch of salt, leaving fans eagerly anticipating more information to unveil the mystery.

We will have to wait and see at least till Episode 7 Act 3 (assumingly release date) what Riot Games reveals about ISO in the coming weeks and months, but in the meantime, fans are already excited to see what the new Duelist Agent has to offer.
