Affleck revealed he’s a “promiscuous” flex player during an impromptu interview at Valorant Champions 2023’s fan fest. 

“I’m a KAY/O main right now, and I think Raze is my other main,” he said. “I’m a little promiscuous with who I main. I move around a little bit.”

The initiator and duelist flex is also well-versed with the meta, with Affleck knowing about the major changes coming to Valorant patch 7.04.

The actor was seen taking photos with Valorant’s voice actors, including Carolina Ravassa (Raze), Gabe Kunda (KAY/O), Miranda O’Hare (Skye), and Shannon Williams (Jett). 

When talking to Williams, Affleck pointed out that Jett is getting nerfed, making her less effective as a duelist agent.

At the time of writing, we don’t know what rank Affleck is or who else he plays with.
