How much XP does it take to unlock an Agent in Valorant?
You need to farm 375,000 XP to unlock an Agent in Valorant. However, this amount of XP will only get you through the first five Tiers of the Agent Contract.
Tier 1 of any Agent Contract requires 25,000 XP to complete. After that, you will need an additional 25,000 XP to complete the next one. The cycle continues for the rest of the Tiers. By reaching Tier 5, you will have accumulated 375,000 XP, enough to unlock an Agent in Valorant.
Gekko is a unique Agent who employs the help of his cuddly friends in combat. He is currently the only Agent capable of planting and defusing the Spike remotely through his Wingman ability, making him a valuable asset on any team composition in Valorant.
Fortunately, you can easily unlock Gekko in-game by buying him out through Valorant Points. If you’re not willing to spend money to unlock him, you can just Activate his Agent Contract and play games to gain the XP required to unlock Tier 5 in his Contract.
