Gekko is going to mess up the meta with a certain mechanic unique to him and here is a full rundown of his abilities.

Riot Games revealed the abilities of the newest agent on the Valorant roster and this one is sure to be a doozy with the new mechanics he brings along. Here are all of his ability descriptions and the potential effects they will have on the game.

Dizzy (E)

Equip Dizzy. Press Fire to send Dizzy soaring forward through the air. Dizzy charges and then unleashes plasma blasts at enemies in line of sight. Enemies hit by the plasma are blinded. When Dizzy expires she reverts into a dormant globule INTERACT to reclaim the globule and gain another Dizzy charge after a short cooldown.

Dizzy sounds like Raze's recently-nerfed bot but it will blind enemies instead of damaging them.

Wingman (Q)

Equip Wingman. Click Fire to send Wingman forward seeking enemies. Wingman unleashes a concussive blast toward the first enemy it sees. Alt fire when targeting a Spike site or planted Spike to have Wingman defuse or plant the Spike. To plant, Gekko must have the Spike in his inventory. When Wingman expires he reverts into a dormant globule. Interact to reclaim the globule and gain another Wingman charge after a short time.

This is the most controversial of his abilities as remote Spike planting and disarming is going to be a nightmare to balance for the devs and to play against for the players.

Mosh Pit (C)

Equip Mosh. Click Fire to throw Mosh like a grenade or Alt fire to throw underhand. Upon landing Mosh duplicates across a large area and then after a short delay explodes

Mosh is going to be a strong area control ability that will probably feel great for Gekko and not too oppressive for the enemies as playing around it sounds like a decent possibility.

Finally, there is the ultimate which will be great for pushing, giving Gekko a well-rounded kit that will make him a great addition for any team.

Thrash (X)

Equip Thrash. Click Fire to link with Thrash’s mind and steer her through enemy territory. Activate the globule to lunge forward and explode, detaining any enemies in a small radius. When Thrash expires she reverts into a dormant globule. Interact to reclaim the globule and gain another Thrash charge after a short cooldown. Thrash can be reclaimed once.
