Welcome VALORANT‘s newest agent, Deadlock.

The Norwegian sentinel has become the latest character to join the game’s ever-growing roster, and she brings plenty of confidence behind her powerful abilities. Whether she’s taking down multiple enemies, throwing down a plethora of traps, or reeling in an unsuspecting victim with her Annihilation ultimate, she has plenty to say.

Deadlock currently has 352 quotes she can say while on the battlefield, and has a collection of unique interactions with fellow agents that help paint more of a picture around her place within the game’s blossoming story.

Agent-specific interactions


(Ally) Knock them senseless, Breach. (Ally) Not bad, Breach. A little messy, but not bad. (Ally) Hi, Breach. Nothing too crazy this time, yeah? I prefer writing a simple mission report. (Ally) Breach, between us. We have three very strong arms, don’t we? (Enemy) Leave Breach to me. (Enemy) Maybe next time, ponytail. (Enemy) They brought Breach… Oh… I feel the headache already. (Enemy) Make no mistake. Their Breach hides behind the chaos.


(Enemy) Leave Deadlock to me. I know how she thinks. I know her weaknesses. (Enemy) One of us had to fall.


(Ally) Fade, now you’re just showing off. (Ally) Fade, if you run short on nightmare, seek me out. I will gladly share mine. (Enemy) Take a nap.


(Ally) Gekko, keep a tight leash on those creatures… for their sake. (Enemy) Their Gekko is mine. (Enemy) Gekko down. (Enemy) I warned you. (Enemy) That Gekko gambles his life for those creatures. He couldn’t make the hard choice… I will. (Enemy) Neutralize the enemy Gekko, and you neutralize his creatures.


(Ally) Harbor, where the hell did you train? (Enemy) Harbor can splash about all he wants. It won’t shield them forever.


(Ally) Technology at its finest. Well done, KAY/O. (Ally) KAY/O, join me on the line. We do not flinch in the face of death. (Enemy) Scrap metal. (Enemy) I will disassemble their war machine.


(Ally) Skye, let’s hunt. (Ally) Skye? You would have made a fine Ståljeger. (Ally) Skye, no matter where you start the fight, we finish it together. (Ally) Skye, don’t get shot. I need my hiking buddy in tiptop shape. (Enemy) Got Skye.


(Ally) Sova, with me.


(Enemy) Their Viper will try to separate us. Stay focused, stay together.
