Gekko is the latest addition to the Valorant Agent pool. Episode 6 Act 2 brought-forth a brand new Initiator who can use his set of pets to assist his team in a variety of ways.

Each of his pets excels at certain tasks that make him shine as an Initiator. Some of his creatures like the Mosh Pit Molly and Dizzy can be utilized through lineups in Valorant. One can use the former to easily deny a plant or defuse a Spike in a post-plant situation. With the latter, one can quite easily detect and sabotage an enemy's vision for a short duration.

The A-Site post-plant lineup for attackers can be performed from outside rubbles near the wall in A-main. Players will have to stand at the right-most edge of the broken wall and aim for the tallest leaf popping out as shown in the image.

While most players are yet to discover a decent lineup for Gekko utilities, this Mosh Pit lineup for post-plant on C-Site is a decent one for attackers. You can perform this while standing at the edge of C-Main and aiming the Pit at the shown spot.

The aforementioned lineups are by far the most easy-to-use and effective on Valorant's Lotus. One can add in a few more tweaks and see if they can get better results in-game. However, it is recommended to practice these lineups in a custom game once before trying them out in a Competitive match.
