Agents are one of the elements that are given the most attention in the entire game. In this post, we will be discussing everything the leaks and devs reveal about the latest Agent to join the roster in-game – Valorant Gekko.
The last Agent to be added to the roster was Harbor, who is a charming Controller. Anticipating the eventual draining of excitement around a new character, Riot is poised to release Valorant Gekko – Agent 22 in the game soon. Let us see what this Agent 22 is all about.
Valorant Gekko abilities
Previously we had some leaks on Valorant Agent 22’s abilities. However, now Riot has officially revealed all the details on the Gekko abilities, along with the gameplay footage of this ew Valorant character.
- Gekko Ability: Mosh Pit: FIRE to throw Mosh like a grenade or ALT Fire to throw underhand. After landing, Mosh Duplicates across an area and explodes after a short delay.

Valorant Gekko gameplay
Well, not exactly a Gekko gameplay footage, but Riot did drop Valorant Gekko Agent Reveal Trailer, which informed us about Gekko’s personality in the game and his connection with other characters.
The official description of Valorant Agent Gekko trailer read, “Meet Dizzy, Wingman, Thrash, and Mosh—a crew of calamitous creatures headed up by Los Angeles-native Gekko, all joining VALORANT with EP_06 // ACT II.”
Valorant Gekko Release date
We don’t have much information in this regard. But from previous patterns, Valorant Gekko is probably going to be released with the release of Episode 6 Act 2, which is set to happen on March 7th, 2023. And that is quite closer than expected.
We are currently at the beginning phases of Episode 6 Act 2, the teaser of which dropped recently. Given that Riot Games has always been consistent with adding new content to this game and that the Episode 6 Act 1 battle pass expires the day before on March 6th, it is possible to infer this release date.
Valorant Gekko Codename
The first thing leaks and rumors brought to us is the codename of this mysterious character Valorant Gekko. ValorLeaks told us that internally, Gekko goes around with the tag of Valorant SmokeDancer. A simple name in appearance but with many possible overtones.
Based on the codename, SmokeDancer seemed to be a Controller Agent. Yet, given that Harbor was the final Controller Agent, it seemed doubtful that Riot Games will release two Agents in the same role back to back.
However, Riot has now revealed that Gekko is a small initiator from Spain. Gekko is shown in the artwork as a young adult wearing green-colored attire and sporting short, yellow-dyed hair. Also, he appears to be surrounded by a number of little creatures, however, it is unknown how they relate to him and whether or not they play a significant role in shaping his persona.
