Days after the release of Episode 5 Act 2, Valorant data miner ValorLeaks has uncovered all the alleged abilities of the upcoming agent codenamed Mage.
An image from what appears to be an early access test version of Valorant shows that the new agent will be formidable. Valorant Agent 21’s character icon and their hands were blurred out, but the complete set of abilities and their icons can be seen.
Based on the leaked abilities, the agent seems to be a jack of all trades – someone who can flash, slow, smoke, and heal. If true, this could be the most broken agent Riot Games has introduced to Valorant.
New Valorant agent codename Mage abilities leaked
Vision Taker (C) — 200 credits
Equip a distortion wall launcher. Fire to create a small line of distortion. Enemies will get briefly blind if they walk through.
Tartarus Pit (Q) — 200 credits
Equip a Tartarus charger. Fire to launch a crippling shot that deals some damage and slows players within its zone.
Bubble (E) — signature ability
Equip bubble and enter into a phased state to place down a bubble by pressing the ability key. Activate to create an impenetrable bubble. Bullets cannot pass through.
Golem (X) — ultimate
Equip the golem doll. Fire to throw down the doll. All teammates in the radius will get a regeneration buff and enemies will get a decay debuff. It lasts for a duration or until destroyed by enemies.
While the leaked agent abilities are not confirmed, ValorLeaks has been one of the primary sources for breaking news in Valorant with a good track record.
As it stands, Agent 21 could be an all-around agent who can fill in the gaps of any agent composition. Bubble also seems to be an ability that’s too good to be true.
Bubble isn’t the first ability that can block bullets and vision. Astra’s Cosmic Divide ultimate can do the same but it costs players seven ultimate points to activate. In comparison, Agent 21’s Bubble is a signature ability that can be used every round for free when it’s off cooldown.
ValorLeaks suspects that the image was leaked by a quality assurance tester (QA) and that the abilities will most likely be changed before being released.
Riot Games has yet to announce a release date for Mage, but they are expected to arrive in Episode 5 Act 3.
