On the evening of January 4, Riot released the splash art of a new champion that will be released to the League of Legends community in the near future. Specifically, this champion will be a gunner from Zaun named Zeri. According to what Riot revealed from the biography of her nicknamed “Spark of Zaun”, her skill set will be related to electricity and in particular, she is an ADC who is considered extremely mobile, as described as “always on the move”.

In addition, the new champion is also described as making the whole team feel like in a shooting game. In addition, Riot also said that the new champion was designed with the intention of re-learning the role of basic attacks in the mechanics of ADC champions, similar to Graves, Jhin and Xayah. “For this new champion, we wanted to re-evaluate the role that basic attacks play for ADC champions, and we also wanted to see if we could change their purpose (basic attacks). ) or not.” – Riot said.
However, all over the forums, the gaming community has begun to talk about this new champion named Zeri. Accordingly, her electric skill set makes longtime League of Legends gamers immediately think of an item that has been wiped out by Riot: Statikk Electric Knife.

In addition, someone pointed out that Zeri looks quite similar to Valorant’s new general – agent number 18 called Neon (codename is Sprinter). Neon is also a mobile champion of Valorant and her kit involves lightning, while Zeri is electrical sparks.

Currently, Riot has not officially announced Zeri’s kit as well as her exact release date. However, it is very likely that this champion will appear in Summoner’s Rift after update 12.2 because currently, update 12.1 is about to be available and Zeri is not included in the changes in this version.
