Gekko Agent Class And Gameplay Overview
As an Initiator, Gekko is able to call out a wide variety of companion animals, each with its own special skills. Depending on the ability he employs, he can temporarily disable, blind, reveal, or stun his opponents.
With his skills, he plans to seize control of strategic regions and swing the tide of war in his favor. It will be fascinating to watch how he influences both the casual and competitive meta with his ability to disable skills.

Gekko’s full arsenal of skills is detailed below.
SHOOT Dizzy forward to launch him into the air. Dizzy powers up and fires beams at foes in his or her line of sight. When an enemy is struck, they go blind.
When Dizzy Expired, they convert into a glob that can be scooped up to be utilized again after a short cooldown.
Wingman (Q) – Ability
Press FIRE to have Wingman advance and search for danger. When an adversary is detected, Wingman directs a triangle blast in its direction.
To plant (you must have the spike) or defuse a planted spike, press ALT FIRE while observing the site or the spike. When planting or detonating the spike, other players can kill Wingman.
After Wingman’s use expires, he becomes a glob that can be picked up and reused after a short rest period.
