The official name of brave Agent 22: Gekko
Gekko, an initiate in the game, was reared and born in Los Angeles. He follows Sova, Breach, Skye, KAY/O, and Fade as the sixth initiator. According to a well-known leaker, “ValorLeaks,” Gekko was given the pseudonym “SmokeDancer” prior to his official announcement.
Gekko’s narrative writer, Joe Killeen, stated that it was difficult to categorize Gekko’s skills in comparison to those of other Agents. Each talent was also one of Gekko’s friends who were unique people. See more below on that.
Gekko’s abilities in Valorant
Gekko can affect a round in a number of ways because he has a variety of creatures at his disposal. He can accomplish many things, such as allowing Wingman to defuse, plant the Spike, or fling Mosh like a grenade. This is a peek at Gekko’s complete abilities.
Dizzy (E): Equip Dizzy FIRE to launch Dizzy into the air and propel her forward. Dizzy charges before launching plasma blasts against nearby adversaries. Her plasma blinds foes who are struck by it. When Dizzy wears off, she transforms back into a dormant globule. After a brief cooldown, INTERACT to reclaim the globule and obtain another Dizzy charge.
Wingman (Q): While aiming at a spike location or a spike that has been planted, the Wingman will launch a concussive blast at the first adversary he encounters using ALT FIRE. Gekko needs to have the Spike in his possession in order to plant. After a brief cooldown, when Wingman expires, he transforms back into a dormant globule INTERACT to recapture the globule and obtain another Wingman charge.
Mosh Pit (C): Equip Mosh FIRE for underhand throwing or ALT FIRE for grenade-style throwing. Immediately after landing, Mosh repeats itself over a sizable region before exploding.
Thrash (X): Equip Thrash FIRE so that it can communicate with Thrash’s mind and guide her through hostile territory. ACTIVATE to advance and detonate, trapping any adversaries nearby. As Thrash wears off, she transforms back into a dormant globule. After a brief cooldown, INTERACT to regain the globule and receive another Thrash charge. You can recover trash once.
