Valorant Agent Neon Teaser
Players were eager to know what is next in store for them in the new year. Turns out it is the new Valorant Agent Neon. This news came to light after an Amazon Prime leak. Leaks and rumors are nothing new in the gaming community. Valorant Agent Chamber‘s name and some abilities were also leaked before his release. Originally codenamed Spinter as per data miners, Neon’s kit is expected to be all about speed.
During Valorant Champions Tour (VCT), the teaser trailer for Valorant Agent 19 was released. It did not reveal much except for brief hints about the Agent. The teaser heavily focused on lightening which could be a reference to speed as well as powers related to lightening. Moreover, the title of the video dropped a major clue for fans. As the title of the video was Tagalog (Philippines’ National Language), it is expected that neon originates from the Philippines. Further strengthening the lightning connection, the video title meant “I hope lightning knocks you out”.
Neon is expected to be a duelist or an initiator. Further, data miners reveal that she is from Mania, Philippines, and is 19 years old. The data miners also revealed that Valorant Agent Neon would be a Radiant and will play a role in the Alpha-Omega Bridge.
