What abilities does the new Valorant agent have?

According to the latest leaks made available by VALORANT Leaks on Twitter, the agent will have four abilities. Gekko will have three abilities and one ultimate. The first is the use of a Flash ability. Flash, as the name suggests, will help blind opponents. However, it has to be used cautiously because it will blind teammates, as well.

The second ability is Molly. Much like Brim’s ability, it will help damage the opponents and also eliminate them from the round if they stand in the molly for a long time. It is extremely helpful to block off choke points and gives the team time to re-align.

The third ability is having a Creature to Carry the Spike (Wingman). Gekko would make an interesting pick as he can summon someone who will be a planter and defuser. It will be interesting to see whether this creature will be able to carry guns for Gekko, as well.

Gekko’s ultimate ability (Thrash) is likely to be a controllable creature that explodes when it comes in contact with the opponent. However, this will be clear in just a few hours when the agent is played in the Showmatch.

When will Gekko be available in-game?

Players can expect the new Valorant agent to be available in-game after Episode 6 Act 2 is released on March 7, 2023. Along with the agent, players will also see the arrival of the Oni 2.0 bundle. The agent will join the long lineup of agents as an Initiator.

A lot of leaks had already suggested that he would be of Mexican descent and is more than excited to leave a good first impression when players see him in-game for the first time. The final will start on March 4, 2023 from 10:00 PST, 15:00 BRT, 11:30 IST, and 3:00 JST.
