There have been rumors about the addition of a new agent for quite some time. Riot Games has officially announced that the new agent 20 Bounty Hunter is an Initiator from Turkey in Valorant, the home of hot air balloons and Lokum.
Each new agent added to Valorant has a massive impact on the ever-changing meta. The last added agent Neon was a Duelist. The impending new agent in Valorant, codenamed “Bounty Hunter,” is rumored to be an Initiator.
The category and origin of Bounty Hunter were already known to players, but a fresh leak has revealed all of their powers. According to the kit disclosed by a trustworthy leaker ValorLeaks, the upcoming agent will be a cross between Omen and Reyna.
Valorant Agent 20 Teaser Image Leaked
The tweet has concluded with “Herkesin bir korkusu var,” a Turkish statement that approximately translates to “everyone has a fear” in English. This strongly suggests that agent 20 is from Turkey.
The picture of a cup of tea next to a platter of Lokum, a famous Turkish dessert. However, the picture file is titled “Lokum,” so it is not mistaken. Perhaps the impending agent 20 isn’t that bitter after all.
Moreover, the corkboard in their room, on the other hand, is somewhat disturbing, with photographs of Sova and Cypher plastered all over it. This most likely indicates he’s ready to compete with Valorant’s top intelligence gatherers.
