When Will Chamber Come Out in VALORANT? Here's the Release Date

Riot has already launched VALORANT Episode 3, Act 3, bringing a fresh competitive experience, a new battle pass, a new weapon skin line inspired by comic books, and a limited-time event based on the League of Legends animated series Arcane, but fans will have to wait a bit longer for the release of the next Agent, Chamber.

The new sentinel "focuses on mechanical outplays" with an "additional focus on gunplay" for "an extra flourish", and as a weapon specialist, he can bring out powerful weapons to take down enemies. Riot already revealed the agent's abilities and appearance ahead of the launch of the new VALORANT Act, but the developer has delayed the release of the Agent by two weeks.

Riot had originally planned to release Chamber with the launch of Episode 3, Act 3, but was forced to delay the Agent until Patch 3.10 after experiencing issues with development.

“As development progressed on the new agent, it was clear to us that they [Chamber] were not at the quality bar you’ve come to expect us from,” Riot said on Oct. 28. "It’s why we’ve opted to hold the agent for an additional two weeks, while we work on polishing up those final aspects.”

VALORANT is expected to release Chamber on Nov. 16.

His E ability, Rendevous, lets him place two teleport anchors. While on the ground and in range of an anchor, Chamber can reactivate to quickly teleport to the other anchor. Anchors can be picked up to be redeployed

The Agent's Q ability, Headhunter equips a heavy pistol. You can alt fire to aim down sights with the weapon.

Finally, Chamber's ultimate ability, Tour de Force, summons a powerful, custom-made sniper rifle that will kill an enemy with a direct hit. Killing an enemy creates a lingering field that slows players caught inside of it.
