Riot Games in a recent developer note confirmed that the next agent would be a ‘Galaxy-brained’ controller. The new Agent codenamed “Codename” is speculated to have both a smoke and a flash.
According to a thread by Reddit user u/NotToDisturb, there have been more details that have been found regarding the latest agent. The information, obtained through datamines point to the mysterious orbs that are appearing in many maps in random locations being closely connected to the agent.
This act’s battle pass’s tier 38 reward, The ‘Bridge between Worlds’ card also has been confirmed to be related to Agent 15. The codename “PainAuxRaisins”, French for “Raisin Bread”, reinforces the idea of the next agent coming from Ghana, a country where one of the most spoken languages is French.
The Orbs and their locations
After patch 2.03, multiple orbs have appeared in different maps in unique locations. The orbs seem to have a different spawn rate for each map. So far, only the orb under Bind’s B site is known to have a 100% spawn rate. The locations for orbs for each map are shown below.
According to the reddit post, the following information has been obtained via the datamines.
New title string
This title is quite short, just “Pioneer”. It is found listed as “VNLaunch” (meaning unknown) in the files under Premium Content, more specifically among other sprays and buddies that could be obtained via Twitch Prime or other in-game events.
Agent related teasers
Datamining revealed the internal name for the orbs, “Floating Ember”, although the relevance of this name is unclear.
Furthermore and as with Yoru, the “Codenamed” folder is of great importance. It contains a folder named “PainAuxRaisins”, which is the codename given to the new agent.
So far, these are the information obtained from the datamines. A lot of details here are predictions so not all of them should be taken as facts. With the next battlepass trailer arriving soon, we expect to get more information about Agent 15.
