Riot Games has officially revealed the latest addition to the Valorant roster, Deadlock, after weeks of speculation and several leaks. The new agent will make her first appearance in the next Episode 7 update, bringing an interesting and dynamic playstyle to the game. This will help her stand out from other Sentinels due to her ability to adapt and react quickly.

While other Sentinels may rely on static defences and established setups, Deadlock’s playstyle is centred on mobility and versatility. She enjoys the chaos of battle and uses the information at her disposal to help her squad win. Here are Valorant Agent 23 Abilities:

  • Sonic Sensor (Q): Deadlock activates a sensor that listens for sounds in a certain area. When there are footsteps or heavy gunfire near the trap, it detonates, concussing everyone within its radius.
  • Barrier Mesh (E): Deadlock equips a Barrier Mesh disc that may be launched by pressing the Fire button. When it makes contact with the ground, it produces an energy barrier that prevents players from entering the area.
  • GravNet (C): Deadlock can use this skill to launch a grenade that changes into a net. When the grenade makes contact with the ground, it explodes. Any enemy caught in its range is compelled to crouch while moving and is slowed.
  • Annihilation (X): The ultimate of Agent Deadlock can only affect a single target. When activated, the Agent unleashes a wave of nanowires that seizes the first opponent it encounters and wraps them in a cocoon. If the wires reach their place of origin, the captured enemy will be killed. The only way to remove it is to destroy the cocoon.

When Will Valorant Agent 23 – Deadlock be Released?

The new Agent Deadlock from VALORANT is set to be released on 27 June 2023, coinciding with the commencement of Episode 7 Act I.
