Agent 21 of Valorant could have water-related skills
The teasing continues for Agent 21 of Valorant. A few weeks ago, the developers of the FPS had confirmed that it would be a controller and there were indications that it might be of Indian origin. In recent days, more and more information leads us to believe that it will probably have water-related skills.
A few weeks ago, an article on the State of the Agents has been released by Riot Games. In it, John Goscicki spoke about the next character in the game. In addition to the fact that he told us that it would be a controller, he also used some specific vocabulary that leads us to believe that it will be related to water. Indeed, he used the words " ocean opportunities' and 'I don't want you walnut under the information'. This is already a pretty clear indication.
But that's not all! As we have seen in several written and verbal messages left in Brimstone's office on the training ground of the game, this new Agent is referred to as Varun Batra. However, it turns out that Varuna is the god of the oceans in Hindu mythology. This cannot be a coincidence, given that the individual appears to have Indian origins.
In addition to this name, several voice messages were broadcast on the training ground, in which the Agents we already know talk about this famous Varun Batra. The following messages were heard:
The man we are chasing is heading west from Bhutan after another run-in with REALM. I spied on their camp. The agents speak of huge walls of water, waves crashing into their ranks and the fugitive confronting a dozen men at once. The reports match the evidence at the scene, intense flooding everywhere but no water source nearby.Omen - Voice message from patch 5.06
Omen therefore speaks flooding when there was no water nearby. Who else but this fugitive could have created water walls ? This fits perfectly with the image that can be seen right now in Cypher's office, still on the training ground. REALM agents in pursuit of Varun Batra, facing a gigantic wall of water. Could this be one of the next character's skills?
Another voice message, this time from Astra, supports the previous assumptions.
Brimstone, I'm sure now, it's him! It can only be him. All mentions of the relic match. And if this fugitive can use it, that changes everything. We have to hurry Chale, our water carrier's time is running out. REALM is this close to catching him, we have to stop it.Astra - Voice message from patch 5.07
Once again, we find references to water. All this leads us to believe that Agent 21 will indeed have a link with the water world. However, we can't be sure until Riot Games confirms these assumptions or until there is more teasing.
It is hoped that new information will be available soon and that the new agent will be released soon.
