VALORANT Episode 6 Act III features a new Agent entering the fray. Hailing from Los Angeles, Gekko and his adorable creature friends will be joining the roster. Here’s what you need to know about the latest VALORANT Agent.
Gekko’s kit is fairly unique with the way his abilities are named after each of his creature buddies. He’s able to retrieve most of his abilities as well after deploying them and collecting their orbs where his abilities expired.
- Dizzy (E): Dizzy is an almost turtle-like creature that Gekko can fire into the air. Dizzy charges then unleashes blinding plasma blasts at any enemies in her line of sight. Gekko is able to retrieve Dizzy when she’s finished her charge as an interactable globule and resets the Dizzy charge after a small cooldown.
- Wingman (Q): Wingman is an adorable owl/penguin looking creature that, when fired, will seek out enemies and blast the first enemy he sees with a concussive blast. Living up to his name, Wingman can also defuse or plant the Spike as long as Gekko has the Spike in his inventory. Like Dizzy, Wingman can also be recharged after finding his interactive globule where he expired.
- Mosh Pit (C): Mosh is a tiny green jello-blob that kind of looks like a tanuki head who can be thrown like a grenade (with the ability to alt fire to throw underhand). Once Mosh lands, he’ll duplicate himself across a green puddle and explode in that area marked.
- Thrash (X): Thrash is an armored fish creature. When activated, she will lunge forward and explode detaining any enemies in a small radius. Thrash can also be retrieved as a globule and gain another charge after a cooldown. But unlike Wingman and Dizzy, Thrash can only be reclaimed once.
VALORANT Episode 6 Act II begins on March 7, 2023 and with the announcement with Gekko, Riot Games announced that Gekko’s hometown of Los Angeles will host the global final 2023 VALORANT Champions. The venues where VALORANT Champions will take place are the Shrine Auditorium and finals at the KIA Forum.
Early next week we’ll have a video breakdown of Gekko and how his abilities translate in game so be sure to follow up here at IGN for all the latest VALORANT updates.
