During Thursday's Summer Game Fest live event, Riot shared a short teaser of a new robot agent booting up in the background while its head activated on a table. The clip didn't reveal much details about the upcoming agent, but this is not the first clue for the upcoming agent's abilities.

Watch the teaser here:


Earlier today, Killjoy took over the official VALORANT Twitter page and has shared mysterious images. Her first image shows a selfie at a concert, and her second image reveals an Alarmbot being disabled. Its caption reads, "Variable removed. Alarmbot down". This could hint that the agent has the ability to disable other agents' abilities, which perfectly fits what VALORANT character director John Goscicki said about the next agent. Riot recently added in-game teasers about Agent 16, giving us a clue about its role in VALORANT's lore.

The video indicates that Killjoy likely created the robot to fight against the mirrored agents trying to steal Earth-1's Radianite.

The Summer Game Fest confirmed that more information about the new VALORANT agent will be revealed later this month. With Act 2, Episode 3 coming soon, it's likely that Riot will fully reveal the new agent within a week or two.

VALORANT Act 1, Episode 3 will launch on June 22, 2021, which is a day after the current battle pass expires.
