Valorant new agent Bounty Hunter abilities reportedly leaked
Another Initiator is almost certain to enter the Valorant realms.
We haven't seen an agent release in Valorant for quite some time. Last we saw was the speedy agent Neon, who made her debut in the Valorant universe in January. Data miners are already uncovering new information on the new agent, which is expected to be codenamed, Bounty Hunter. The agent will also be an initiator, and dataminer ValorLeaks has revealed the agent's abilities.

- (C) — Send out a creature that can follow trails OR be controlled by moving your mouse. Upon reaching an enemy, they will be Nearsighted for 3s. Only 1 Creature per Trail.
- (Q) — Equip and Fire an Orb which will stay in the air for a max of 1.5s, and then slam to the ground. When the orb hits the ground Enemies within the radius will be tethered, and will take damage and be deafened.
- (E) — Equip and Fire an Orb which will stay in the air and then hit the ground. Then it will go back into the air and turn into an eye. If Enemies get seen by the eye they will be revealed and a trail debuff is applied.
- (X) — Send out a wave of dark mist. If the mist hits an enemy, they will be Deafened, Trailed, and Decayed.
The leaks of the Turkish initiator confirm that it will centre on stalking, tracking, and assassinating foes using stealth methods.
There are currently no release date hints, however, it appears that the new agent will likely release with the arrival of Act III of Episode 4. So, not far to go, and as the release date approaches, we should have much more details in the following weeks.
