VALORANT Episode 6 Act 2: Release date, New skins, Battlepass and more

VALORANT Episode 6 Act 2 will also see the release of Agent 22.

VALORANT Episode 6 Act 2’s release is just around the corner and we can expect several bug fixes, a new battle pass, new cosmetics and maybe, just maybe a new agent. Here’s all we need to know about VALORANT Episode 6 Act 2. This article will be updated live as and when more information becomes available. 

When will VALORANT Episode 6 Act 2 release?

VALORANT Episode 6 Act 2 will release on March 7, 2023.

(function(d, s, id) { var js, pjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); = id; js.src = "//"; pjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, pjs); }(document, "script", "tickcounter-sdk"));Countdown

The current patch, VALORANT Episode 6 Act 1, comes to an end on March 6, 2023. As has been the norm over the past few years, Riot Games should release VALORANT Episode 6 Act 2 on the next day, i.e. March 7, 2023. 

Episode 6 Act 1 was released on January 9, 2023 and will come to an end shortly after the conclusion of VCT LOCK//IN Sao Paulo.

The VALORANT Battle pass

There will be a new battlepass that costs 1000 V bucks. This translates to around $10, although the actual variation might vary depending on your location.

With every new act, Riot Games also releases a new battle pass. The battle pass brings new cosmetics and will also include the Oni 2.0 skin bundle. The Oni 2.0 skin bundle includes a Frenzy, Ares, Bulldog, Vandal as well as a Katana. The original Oni skin was and is one of the most popular VALORANT skin till date. 

It’s not necessary for you to buy the VALORANT battle pass. But obviously, if you want amazing cosmetics, you will have to open up your wallet.


With no new agent releasing in Act 1, expectations are high for Agent 22 to make its appearance with VALORANT Episode 6 Act 2. There has been no reveal yet from Riot. But as they release more leaks and information, we will keep you updated with all that’s new about VALORANT Agent 22. 

There is an agent named Smokedancer in the works. It’s still not confirmed if this is Agent 22 or yet another agent in the works for a future release. 

There have been repeated hints that the new agent will be Spanish. With ‘Beard Papi’ being mentioned on multiple occasions, Riot is slowly but surely dropping hints about the backstory for VALORANT Agent 22.

The new agent is also friendly with agents such as Reyna and knows Spanish. Agent 22 will bring its own eclectic way to play the game - including new ways to check corners, plant the spike, and more. Initial impressions suggest Agent 22 will be more of a supportive role and less destructive.

When will VALORANT Agent 22 be revealed?

VALORANT Agent 22 will be unveiled on March 4 at 9 am PT.

Also can we just marvel at the fact that Brim has called the new Agent 9 times! Nine times!
