Valorant’s next agent is on the horizon. While Riot’s Agent 22 is yet to be officially revealed, here’s everything we know about the upcoming character.

The roster of Valorant agents continues to grow at a rapid pace. While the first-person shooter started with just 10 agents, today players have a variety of options to choose from.

It hasn’t been long since Harbor arrived in Episode 5 – which was certainly a breath of fresh air for players. However, the Indian water-wielding agent was a bit “underwhelming” according to the pros, and now many are looking to what’s in store next.

Valorant Agent 22: rumours, leaks and teasers

Not much is known about the next agent of Valorant. According to prominent leaker ValorLeaks, a new agent currently in development is codenamed SmokeDancer.

While codenames don’t usually mean much, the name does suggest that the next agent might have the ability to counter smoke or other abilities that block a line of sight.

Additionally, Riot developer John “MEMEMEMEME” Gosciki’s latest State of the Agents update gave the community a sneak peek at what’s in store for players in 2023.
