Valorant Agent 21 expects to arrive soon. Here is what we know so far.

Valorant: Agent 21

Currently, Valorant has 20 agents with 19 being playable (Agent 8 is still unknown). This will change soon as Agent 21 expects to join other agents this coming August 2022. A known leaker @Valorleaks Twitter account also provided the Codename: Mage for the upcoming new agent which opens up speculations.

Valorant has 4 general categories for its agents. These are Duelists, Controller, Initiators, and Sentinels. If codename Mage is to be deduced into one of these categories, it would be under the Controllers. Aside from only having four agents at the moment, controllers focus on taking out the enemy’s vision, controlling an area, and leading enemies into choke points.

One can argue that mages can also fit as Sentinel Agents. However, traditionally in games, Mages are typically the Controllers. This is besides the fact that Riot also takes inspiration from League of Legends for Valorant Agents like Neon.

In terms of skills, there are uncertainties about whether the new agent will have modern tech or straight-out mage powers.

That is all we know and speculated so far from the upcoming Agent 21.
