Get ready for turrets

Valorant’s next season is set to start around Aug. 4 — the exact date is still unknown — and Riot’s already teasing the new Agent that’s likely to come with it. The new Agent’s first teaser came via cryptic tweet with a short message and a few images.

The tweet’s message is the phrase “who is she,” in German — probably a pretty good hint about what to expect from the new Agent. As for the images, it seems like hacking will be a core part of her identity, thanks to the two images of a computer and a keyboard.

As for the other two pictures it seems they could be ability hints. One is a small robot on wheels, which probably seeks out enemies. The other image looks a lot like a turret.

All these hints seem to line up pretty well with the recent leaks of about a German character called Killjoy who can place automated turrets around the map, but we’ll have to wait for Riot’s official reveal to know for sure. Whoever the new Agent is, she’ll likely be release alongside Valorant Act 2, which should start sometime next week.
