New Valorant character ‘Agent 14’ ⁠— currently codenamed “Stealth” in the game’s code ⁠— has had its abilities leaked, including a particularly crazy ultimate that turns them “invisible” and “invulnerable” when activated.

The Valorant fandom has been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the title’s next agent, only known as “14” for now,  and now a huge new leak has revealed some major details, including all four abilities and a possible name.

The leak, first shared on Reddit on Jan. 2, shows just over two minutes of the soon-to-be-released Episode 2 agent using their abilities in the Valorant training lobby. The abilities are mainly based around deception, and one is a “flash” attack.

The leak also appears to reveal Agent 14’s official name: “Yoru.”

At the end of the clip, the new agent ⁠— “Yoru” ⁠— can be seen opening a tear in space. He then grabs a Hannya mask, and enters another dimension. According to the translated ability details, this ultimate turns Agent 14 “invisible” and may even make them “invulnerable” to attacks.

This may work similarly to Wraith’s “Into the Void” tactical in Apex Legends.

Here’s the in-game descriptions for each of Agent 14’s leaked abilities, including the “invisible” ultimate, as translated by /u/kuroi_kaze on Reddit:

All leaked ‘Agent 14’ abilities

  • Z ⁠— Creates steps sound. Press ‘Fire’ to send it ahead, or pre-place it with ‘Alt-Fire,’ then press ‘F’ to send inactive one ahead.
  • X ⁠— Flash. Press ‘Fire’ to throw it, it will pop after contacting with surface.
  • C ⁠— Press ability button to place Portal, press ‘Fire’ to send Portal ahead, anchor Portal with ‘Alt-Fire.’ Press active to teleport through the Portal.
  • Q (Ultimate) ⁠— Press ‘Fire’ to become invisible to enemies, and invulnerable.

Are the new Valorant leaks real?

While there’s been no official confirmation regarding the leaks ⁠— don’t expect there to be either ⁠— the new images do line up with older reveals we’ve seen before.

Late last year, Riot posted a short video on @VALORANTBrazil which appeared to reveal a sneak peek at Agent 14. The in-game footage showed an unfamiliar face in the select screen alongside Sage, Brimstone, Raze, and Reyna.

The small character image showed a mysterious male sporting spiked blue hair and a  jacket. While no one recognized the new Valorant character at the time, it lines up perfectly with this new “Yoru” agent from this week’s Russian leaks.

Riot’s latest tease also said Agent 14 would “tear open” Episode 2. Yoru seems to control portals and open rifts with his Ult, so the leak certainly fits the bill.
