What’s New in VALORANT Episode 5 Act III
Episode 5 Act III brings a new Agent into the fold: Harbor. Round out your team with this Controller and watch your enemies try to wade through onto site. But with all the excitement that comes with a new Agent, don’t forget to check out the latest Battlepass, the return of the Ion skinline, and more.
NEW AGENT: HARBOR (Oct.18)
Who’s that on the horizon? Hailing from the coast of India, Harbor is a new Controller Agent who commands a mix of tide and torrent to shield his teammates and pummel the opposing team. Concuss your enemies with a literal geyser, and block vision and paths with his abilities Cove and Cascade. They won’t—and can’t—see it coming.
See all his abilities on his Agent page.
NEW SKINLINE: ION RETURNS (Oct.18)
The era of Ion begins again—but don’t think this is just a carbon copy. Elevate the sights and sounds in your collection with a Vandal, Ares, Spectre, Frenzy, and a Karambit Melee created in the signature Ion style. Or, if one look’s not enough, upgrade to one of 3 variants, each with their own color-specific finisher.
EPISODE 5 ACT III BATTLEPASS (Oct.18)
New Act means new Battlepass and this one isn’t one to miss. Curate your collection with the Simple Instructions Spray, Can’t Break Me Buddy and Starlit Odyssey Ghost.
Also included in this Battlepass as a free item is the Corbin’s Light Gun Buddy—created to honor Corbin, a member of the VALORANT community. The Corbin’s Light Gun Buddy takes design notes from Corbin and his older brother, and includes the coordinates to a star that was named after Corbin by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Riot Games will make a donation via the Riot Games Social Impact Fund to the C-Squad Foundation—started by his family in his honor right before he passed. Shine on, Corbin.
Play and earn extra cool stuff when you purchase the Act III Battlepass—this includes the Rune Stone Odin, Breach’s Approval Spray, and Iridian Thorn Blade.
If you’re new to the Battlepass, learn how it works.
