Here's what TenZ has to say about the new VALORANT agent!

What do we know about VALORANT Agent 25? - Agent Clove

The new agent's name is Clove as per some leaks. The new agent, a female, might have controlling abilities that allow her to dominate the battlefield.

The developers have designed the new agent keeping in mind players who play solo or as a duo. While most controllers require excellent team coordination to be useful, Agent 25 is some one that might excel in individual situations as well.

Many of you love that, and these types of playstyles work really well in coordinated play. But with that said, many of you get into the game as a solo or duo. Maybe some of you have amazing aim like TenZ, but understand the strategic needs of the broader comp, which leads you to picking a Controller. You’re the people we thought about when creating A25.

Playing risky VALORANT with a controller is undoubtedly also going to have some downsides. This holds true if the controller takes an early fight and loses the fight. But as a player, you will have to make an impromptu assessment on whether the fight is worth the risk or not.

Y’all are some mischievous risk takers. You know how to play the map while always pursuing favorable fights. But when you jump into a wee fray, it’s inevitable you’ll lose the fight sometimes, and having the team's Controller be the first or second one out in a round is normally a daft play and can greatly limit you and your team’s options.

New Agent is Non-Binary

The new agent is also non-binary. Riot has been a Champion in ensuring inclusivity in its games and Clove will be the latest example of the same.
