The server usually goes down for a few hours, and after it is back, players will get to see the Gekko. From what we know so far about Gekko, it does look like an interesting agent that has distinctive abilities and ultimate. Besides that, he also looks very cool.

Gekko has three abilities and one ultimate ability. These are Wingman, Thrash, Dizzy, and Mosh Pit. Wingman has had the most attention, and rightfully so. It can help players plant or defuse the Spike. Additionally, if players don’t have the Spike, it can also help them find enemies.
Mosh Pit, is the second ability. It is very close to the Molly that Viper uses. With a larger splash ability, it will kill enemies who come in contact with it for a long duration.
Dizzy is the next ability. It is the most effective ability if players want to blind their opponents for five seconds. While it may not sound like much, being unable to do anything for those five seconds is annoying.
Gekko’s ultimate ability is Thrash. Gekko will be able to control Thrash and unleash it in the direction of the enemies. Players will be able to pick up the orb and unleash it one more time during the round.
