Valorant: Act II of Episode 6 launched, with the new Agent Gekko and his 4 companions as fun as they are explosive

I’Episode 6 debuted earlier this year with a new map, but it’s only with theAct II launched this March 7 that we are entitled to a new Agent playable, the 22nd of roster. His name is Gekko and is a cool fighter from Los Angeles : its origin was not chosen at random, it will be the city that will host the ultimate tournament Valorant Champions 2023 later this year.

This character has the particularity of being accompanied by 4 pets that allow you to trigger as many special skills. Verti can dazzle opponents with plasma, Altego detects nearby enemies and can stun the first one it finds, or plant or defuse the spike, pogo can sprawl on the ground and explode, and Mordicus can be controlled remotely by synchronizing its vision with that of Gekko, before why not jumping and hurting an opponent. A gameplay particular property which should further diversify the parts of Valorant.

I’Act II of the’Episode 6 is otherwise accompanied by a Battle Passnew cosmetics Oni rare and some optimizations to discover in the changelog below.

Say hello to Gekko, our new initiator. With his teammates, he is ready to cover the angles, scout out, and even place or defuse the spike. But that’s not all. You voiced your demands, waited, and it finally happened: Oni returns with a new melee weapon.

Don’t forget to check out the battle pass, and finally start your ascent: the ranks have been reset.


Welcome Verti, Altego, Mordicus, Pogo and the leader of the gang, Gekko, who comes to us from Los Angeles. Need help getting your team to site? Send plasma bolts at the enemy with Verti or let Altego scout to find the enemy team and flood them with plasma (then plant or defuse the spike). Be gentle with Pogo; once launched, it lands and multiplies over a large area before exploding. Finally, guide Mordicus so that he jumps on the enemy in a detonation of plasma. Assemble your team, wreak havoc, and band together to start over.


Oni is back, and will sow vengeance and corruption in his wake. With a Vandal, a Bulldog, an Ares, a Frenzy and the new Onimaru Kunitsuna (melee katana), you will have something to satisfy your inner demon.
