Data miners revealed some more information as well as confirmed some previous information about the upcoming agent code-named “Grenadier.” This code name was earlier argued upon if it’s just another name for Raze as he is the only agent with grenades in-game. Though now it is confirmed by various data miners that “Grenadier” is the code name for the forthcoming agent to the game.
Sounds like the new Agent will be able to “suppress” (disable) abilities 🤔

The following teaser shows a different type of knife, one currently not existing in the game, which hits the crate while creating weird special effects.
The data miner “Floxayy” also pointed out that this knife might be able to travel through teleports.
Though during the last State of Agent, their Chracter Producer John Goscicki did mention that their upcoming agent is characterized in a way that it makes players rely on their gun play and not their abilities. Which kind of hints about the agent being a disabler, the one that can disable other abilities for a brief time and hence rely on their gun-power.
These are all just speculations as Riot Games has not confirmed any of it, but it won’t be too long before Riot Games officially announce it as the Episode 3 is on its way and will be out in the 3rd or 4th week of June.
