Now that we know more about Valorant Agent Gekko after the trailers and gameplay reveal at the VCT//LOCK IN show match, he is no longer a mystery.
The agent hails from Los Angeles and he will be the game’s sixth initiator and 22nd agent. Act 2 of Episode 6 started on March 7, 2023, and patch 6.04 will add Gekko as a playable character to Valorant.
Gekko is the first agent added to the game for this episode and the first since Harbor’s debut back in October. Later in 2023, after Gekko, another agent, a Sentinel, will be added.
The year will end with a third agent, whose role was not yet revealed, near the end of the year.
Lore About Valorant Agent Gekko
Gekko is the third American character in the game and is from the East Los Angeles area of Mexican-Americans.
His affinity for skateboards and hoops as well as his use of social media to create reels of himself are all strong indications. It shows how much American culture influenced his sense of style.
According to the teasers and teaser videos, the Mexican agent Reyna, with whom the character may converse in both Spanish and English, has enlisted Gekko in the Valorant Protocol.
Also, it appears that Gekko is familiar with Neon. Moreover, he is sometimes related to Jett and Brimstone, whom he nicknames “Beard Papi,” in several pictures.
Valorant Agent Gekko Abilities
Valorant Agent Gekko Abilities are more creative and unique than the other agents. Gekko has buddies that can help him out on his duels. He calls his buddies Dizzy, Wingman, Mosh, and Thrash.
All of his abilities rely on his four buddies, and each of them has a different function. Even more, his buddies are the cutest and the most adorable gooey little creatures. It is undoubtedly a shame that you have to shoot one of them.
