Valorant data leak reveals new agent Killjoy, game modes, skins

It was only a matter of time before someone data mined Valorant. And the results of this latest break have been massive.

Valorant Express decided to dig through the game’s files after the latest patch and emerged with a lot of potentially juicy leaks, including a new agent, new game mode, new weapon skin, and some potential quality of life updates. 

Valorant leaks hint that Killjoy may be next agent

“New audio for the upcoming agent Killjoy has been found,” it was revealed. “There is a chance this audio could change, but I think these sounds are real. You can even hear effects that could potentially be for his turret.” 

The audio files Valorant Express uncovered were futuristic and reminiscent of a robot or cyborg. 

This would coincide with earlier leaks that hinted at the existence of Killjoy. Some players discovered a number of agent voice lines that hinted at a new agent that’s short, possibly uses robotic legs, and is some sort of engineer. It’s also thought that Killjoy will be from Germany based on some language used in related artwork. 

Another leaked file revealed that Killjoy may have some lightning-based abilities. 

Valorant’s developers recently stated that their plan was to add six new agents each year, along with a few other big additions like new maps and fresh lore. 

Valorant leaks reveal possible deathmatch game mode

Valorant Express also uncovered a free-for-all mode in the game’s files. This is big news for a Valorant community that has been hounding Riot for a deathmatch mode since the game’s closed beta. 

While Spike Rush was a welcomed addition to the game upon its official launch, deathmatch was still on everyone’s Valorant wish list. 

According to the files, it appears that Riot is currently testing this free-for-all mode on Ascent, which will be updated to support that type of game mode. There are currently no leaked images of the map’s deathmatch concept. 

Valorant leak shows off Cyberpunk cosmetics

The Valorant community has been busy discussing the $95 Elderflame weapon skins bundle, but Valorant Express has already uncovered the next one. According to the game’s files, it will be cyberpunk-themed. 

Files for “cyberpunk” were found for the Frenzy, Judge, Bulldog, Ares, and a melee weapon. Based on the uncovered files, Valorant Express believes that players could see the cyberpunk-themed weapon skins bundle in two weeks. 

The Vandal, Operator, Scepter, and Classic Pistol were included in a set possibly called “Fallen,” which is still too vague to paint a clear picture. 

The major data mining haul also contained the possibility of support for left-handed players as well as a timeout option. These are two things that the Valorant community has been asking for over the past few months. There were also files related to competitive inactivity warnings, meaning a player would have to play a minimum number of games during a specified period of time in order to maintain their rank. 

So far, Valorant developers have seemed responsive to the community’s concerns, ideas, and general discussions. Many players are already excited about the new features pointed to by these latest leaks. But it’s always possible for the developers to change things up before any or all of these features are released to the public. 

Riot hasn’t confirmed any of the leaks.

Call of Duty: Warzone players report game-breaking glitch at the start of matches

Published

Call of Duty: Warzone is in the midst of its Haunting in Verdansk limited-time event that adds a spooky vibe to match the holiday season. But some players are experiencing a black screen when they drop into the map and cannot see their surroundings, preventing them from playing the game. 

One player uploaded a clip of them parachuting into the map at the start of a match like normal, but their screen was completely black when they didn’t have their map open. When the player closed their map to control their descent, the screen turned a solid black, making it impossible to play the game. 

Other players have reported the same issue and claimed that it does not disappear unless they leave the game. One player managed to find and drive an ATV, which fixed the problem but only while driving. 

It is unclear what causes this issue, but it does not appear to be isolated to a specific game mode. The black screen occurs at the beginning of the match, and players can back out to resolve the problem, although it is still an inconvenience. Some players joked about the glitch matching the spooky theme, but most fans are not amused. 

Players recently experienced a glitch that causes their gun to be misaligned and also were forced to deal with an exploit that allowed players to have unlimited tactical equipment. Infinity Ward is continuously resolving and identifying Warzone issues, so fans may see a fix for the problem soon.

Heading into MCC 11, you can expect a few spooky changes thanks to the Noxcrew team, including all of the team names, in what should be some fun pre-Halloween festivities.

Washington Justice re-signs Decay, acquires Mag

Published

One of the most clutch players of the 2020 Overwatch League season has decided to run it back next year.

The Washington Justice announced today it would be re-signing DPS Jang “Decay” Gui-un for the 2021 season. In addition, the team has acquired main tank Kim “Mag” Tae-sung from Overwatch Korea Contenders team RunAway. 

These roster additions should serve as some good news for weary Washington Justice fans. Earlier this week, the team parted ways with longtime main tank Gye “rOar” Chang-hoon. Additionally, the 2021 Overwatch League contract status report showed that most high-profile Justice players were entering free agency, including Decay. 

Despite having an abysmal regular season with a 4-17 record, the Washington Justice managed to make a monumental run in the postseason bracket. Much of this success was credited to Decay, who flexed to off-tank Zarya and beamed down all who opposed him. The Justice made it to the lower finals of the postseason bracket before being defeated by the Philadelphia Fusion. 

Decay was a clutch acquisition for Washington, which picked him up in August after he was released from the Dallas Fuel amid reports of noncompliance. The DPS player began his journey in the Overwatch League as a part of the Los Angeles Gladiators in 2018 before joining the Dallas Fuel during the 2019 offseason. 

In the 2021 Overwatch League season, Decay will be backed up by Mag, a longtime member of the wildly successful RunAway franchise. Mag has been a part of RunAway as the team racked up championship wins in Contenders Korea as well as various NetEase tournaments.  

The rest of the 2021 Washington Justice roster remains a mystery for now, though head coach Seung-Jun “Sup7eme” Han and general manager Aaron “PRE” Heckman will be returning to the organizational side of things next year.
