Valorant’s Polygon referring to a new unknown character named “Varun Batra” whose name suggests he may have come from India. Valorant is popular in India and the addition of an Indian agent will be exciting for fans in the region. However, it is unknown whether Varun will be a playable agent and just a non-playable character (NPC) related to teaching.

Varun Batra: Valorant’s New Agent Will Be Indian?
New Agent Email in Valorant
The most crucial hints about each new agent show up in the in-game emails that Valorant has on its maps and the shooting range. One such email showed up in Brimstone’s room within the shooting range. The email talks about a new power source named “Varun Batra.” A similar email showed up before the agent Neon was announced and referred to her as a power source.
Varun Batra is the potential Indian agent, who might make it into Valorant towards the end of this year. As per the in-game information (as per Brimstone’s email), he’s a black market raider who recovers historical artifacts for REALM. The REALM is an in-game corporation that hires agents for their unknown motives. Valorant still hasn’t confirmed if Varun is the next Valorant agent, but everything is surely pointing towards the same.
As for the powers, the fans speculate Varun will have water-based powers in the game.
