Rhino is a new duellist agent concept that has been making waves on Reddit. Created by u/lemonstone92, Rhino is an Irish mercenary who uses brute force and aggression to break enemy lines. The concept includes detailed descriptions of the agent's abilities and backstory, and has generated a lot of buzz amongst Valorant fans.

The Abilities

The Rhino concept includes four unique abilities that could potentially change the way duellist agents are played in the game.


The first ability is Tomahawk, a throwing axe that sticks to the first surface it hits before detonating and concussing anyone in the radius of the explosion. Similar in some ways to KAY/O's knife, players would have to be strategic in the placement of the Tomahawk, as it has a smaller radius than some of the other area-of-effect (AOE) abilities in the game. Tomahawk would cost 300 credits and could be used once per charge.


Next up is Waylay, a flash grenade that floats in the air for a short time before detonating three short flashes. This ability would allow players to disorient their opponents and move in for an attack. Each flash lasts about half a second, with a gap in between flashes of the same duration, giving players plenty of time to react. Waylay would cost 200 credits and could be used twice per charge.


Rhino's signature ability is Stampede, which includes a booster pack that players can use to propel themselves forward at high speeds. During the charge, Rhino would leave a wall of dust behind him, instantly breaking any barriers in his way and leaving enemies concussed. All damage received during the charge would be reduced by 50%. Players would have to use this ability strategically, as it only runs forward in a straight line, and can be blocked by tripwires. Stampede would be free and players could regain a charge by getting two kills.

Old Reliable

Finally, Rhino's ultimate ability is Old Reliable, which is a semi-automatic grenade launcher with six rounds. Players could fire to launch an explosive projectile in an arc that detonates on impact, dealing splash damage to those caught in the blast area. The ability would last for the duration of the round and would be over once all six rounds are expended. While some users on Reddit felt the ability might be overpowered, others suggested reducing the number of charges available to balance it out. Old Reliable would be the most expensive ability, costing eight ultimate points.

The Community Response

So, what has the community response to Rhino been like? Most comments on the Reddit post have been positive, with many players liking the concept and seeing potential in the abilities. Some have suggested that Tomahawk might need a larger radius to be effective, while others have proposed varying degrees of changes to Old Reliable to make it less overpowered.

One user, Zigamafrid, even suggested that Rhino might have been inspired by an agent from another game, Warframe, called Rhino. Whether that is true or not, it's clear that Rhino has captured the imaginations of Valorant fans looking for new and exciting ways to play the game.


So, is Rhino the new duellist agent that Valorant fans have been waiting for? While only time will tell if the character appears in the game, the concept has certainly generated a lot of buzz and excitement amongst the community. With its unique abilities and backstory, Rhino could bring a new level of strategy and excitement to the game's duellist agents. What do you think? Do you like the Rhino concept?
