With Episode 3 Act 3 a month away from ending, Riot Games has been dropping subtle hints about Valorant agent 19.

Valorant agent 19’s biggest clue was shared at the start of Valorant Champions 2021’s finals broadcast. The event’s opening was interrupted by a glitch of coded numbers and letters which formed the silhouette of a female character.

In the clip, the female character says, “I’ll show you.” This is followed by the Tagalog phrase, “Lintik kayo,” the shorthand of “Malintikan sana kayo,” which means “I hope you get struck by lightning,” in English.

Riot Games has added a lot of information about the new Valorant agent in the game.

In a voicemail message that was added to The Range, Chamber gives Brimstone an update regarding ‘19’.

“As you see, her abilities are uniquely suited to help with the special project. She is a perfect fit I think. Unfortunately, I cannot reach out to her directly,” explained Chamber to Brimstone. “There is a past misunderstanding that may make her less receptive. But, as a fellow K-SEC veteran, I’m sure she’ll meet with you. Appeal to her sense of service, she gets that from her family. This is exciting, no? Good progress.”

Cynprel has complied all the new Chamber voice lines from Valorant patch 3.12 where he gives out clues on the new Valorant agent’s background.
