Riot Games have revealed the newest Agent coming in Act 3, Skye, a versatile Australian who will start scouting, attacking, and healing for her teams on October 27.

A couple months after Killjoy debuted as Valorant’s 12th Agent, Riot Games have revealed the trailer for the game’s 13th, Skye, who employs a variety of “beasts” to do her bidding and help her team gain a competitive edge.

From being able to heal teammates to nearsighting and damaging enemies from afar, Skye appears to have a multifaceted suite of abilities that make her an intriguing Agent to employ.

Skye is Valorant’s newest Agent, hailing from Australia.

What are Skye’s abilities?

  • Ability 1 — Trailblazer: Equip a Tasmanian tiger trinket. Fire to send out and take control of the predator. While in control, fire to leap forward, exploding in a concussive blast and damaging enemies.
  • Ability 2 — Guiding Light: Equip a hawk trinket. Fire to send it forward, hold fire to guide it from afar. Re-use while the hawk is in flight to transform it into a flash that gives a “hit confirm” if an enemy is within range and line of sight.
  • Ability 3 — Regrowth: Equip a healing trinket. Hold fire to channel, healing allies in range and line of sight. Can be reused until her healing pool is depleted. (Does not heal herself.)
  • Ultimate Ability — Seekers: Equip a “seeker” trinket. Fire to send out three seekers to track down the three closest enemies. If a seeker reaches an enemy, it nearsights them.

Skye’s Agent contract

Like Killjoy, Riot has only listed Skye’s Agent contract as having eight rewards (including the Agent herself). However, upon release, Killjoy ended up having 10 rewards in her contract. 

While the specific details and looks of her awards remain uncertain, players can expect to unlock three sprays, two titles, one gun buddy, one player card, and, as aforementioned, Skye.

Skye Release date in Valorant

Skye is set for release in Valorant on October 27, 2020.

Unlike Killjoy, who was revealed on August 2 and added to the game on August 4, Valorant players will have to wait a couple weeks to unlock the beastmaster Agent. While the next patch will unleash an icy Act III on fans fit with a brand-new Icebox map on October 13, eager players can circle October 27 on their calendars for Skye.

On that date, the game will feature a “Competitive Refresh” fit with a new Competitive Act, more server control, and, in a chance for players to start grinding out the title’s versatile 13th Agent.


How to complete FIFA 21 FGS token swaps SBCs

EA SPORTS are bringing out FGS Token swaps SBCs so that you can cash in your tokens for rewards. Here’s what you need to know about the new Squad Building Challenges. 

With the FIFA esports scene growing year on year, EA SPORTS have started using rewards for fans who tune into the different events every time they roll around – with everything from packs to player drops being possible.

This involves having your EA SPORTS account linked to your Twitch account, and then it’s all about kicking back, watching the action, and hoping you strike it lucky with a drop.

With FIFA 21, things are changing ever so slightly. EA are offering up special FGS Player tokens to anyone who watches an hour of the action, and these tokens can then be used in squad building challenges. 

However, unlike trying to complete a Player of the Month or Flashback SBC, you won’t have to build an entire squad around one of your tokens.

Oh no, instead, you’ll be able to take the tokens and swap them directly for rewards. It’s pretty simple, the more tokens you have, the more rewards you’ll be able to complete. 

Just take the tokens to the SBC that you’d like to complete, pop them in, press complete, and wait for your reward to pop out. For now, these rewards are all about packs, and you can find the different levels below.

FIFA 21 FGS Swaps SBC requirements

  • Jumbo Rare Players Pack: FGS Swap Players – exactly 5
  • Mega Pack: FGS Swap Players – exactly 4
  • Prime Electrum Players Pack: FGS Swap Players – exactly 3
  • Premium Gold Pack: FGS Swap Players – exactly 2

The SBCs are currently in-game, but tokens aren’t available just yet.

As of writing, these challenges can’t be completed because the FGS Tokens are not currently live. However, once they are, just follow the steps above to claim a reward. 

These rewards are set to be available for the next 30 weeks. That’s right, 30 weeks, so you don’t have to worry about getting tokens fast. Simply bide your time, and you’ll get a reward at some point. 

The current crop of rewards, the four packs, could very well change over the course of the year, so we’ll keep a keen eye on things over the next few weeks.
