Riot Games just released Valorant version 6.04, which features the addition of a brand-new Agent, Gekko. Along with the release of this update comes the start of Episode 6 Act II, which implies a rank reset, as well as the launch of the Oni 2.0 skinline and a new Battlepass.

The 6.04 update highlights the addition of Gekko to the Valorant Agent roster. Gekko is an Initiator from Los Angeles who leads a tight-knit crew of calamitous creatures. Gekko provides the Initiator class a fresh spin while maintaining some parallels to Skye in terms of having a supporting crew of creatures in their abilities.

Gekko’s Q enables him to equip and deploy his Wingman to hunt out enemies. Wingman can also unleash a concussive blast toward the first enemy he sees. Wingman sets Gekko apart from every other Agent since it has the capability to either defuse or plant the Spike. Meanwhile, Gekko’s E sends another member of his crew, Dizzy, which charges up and releases plasma blasts that can blind enemies in its line of sight.

The Signature (C) ability of Gekko allows him to throw Mosh like a grenade which can duplicate across a large area upon landing and explodes after a short delay. Finally, Gekko’s Ultimate (X) gives him the ability to link his mind with Thrash‘s and guide her across enemy territory so that she may charge ahead and explode, detaining all enemies within a small radius.

Several updates and fixes were also made as part of Valorant patch 6.04, which are as follows:

Performance Update

  • Updated thread synchronization to reduce input latency.
    • Input latency has been improved by ~1 frame for players who meet all of the following criteria:
      • They do not have NVIDIA Reflex/AMD Anti-Lag available/enabled.
      • They have multithreaded rendering enabled.
      • They use VSYNC.

Bugs

Agents

  • Fixed bug where if Sage’s Barrier Orb was damaged while fortifying, it would fortify to full health instead of going to max health minus the damage that was dealt with during fortification.

Gameplay System

  • Fixed a bug where abilities, like Sova Drone that are pushed by the Lotus doors into other players, could continue to push players even after the door stops or the players exited the doors area.

Performance

  • Fixed hitch where game mode-related UI is loaded in a blocking manner on game startup.
