New LoL champion Zeri leaked

The first new League of Legends champion of 2022 has been revealed – the ‘hyper’ ADC with electrifying powers known as Zeri, the Spark of Zaun.

Riot had previously spoken about this new 2022 electric marksman champion, but today revealed her splash art and a brief biography.

Zeri appeared in a champion post on the League of Legends website today, which has now been removed.

Her abilities have not yet been removed, but the blurb on the League of Legends website read: “A headstrong, spirited young woman from Zaun’s working-class, Zeri channels her electric magic to charge herself and her custom-crafted gun.

“Her volatile power mirrors her emotions, its sparks reflecting her lightning-fast approach to life. Deeply compassionate toward others, Zeri carries the love of her family and her home into every fight.

“Though her eagerness to help can sometimes backfire, Zeri believes one truth to be certain: stand up for your community, and it will stand up with you.”

The ‘lightning-fast’ wording makes it clear – this is the electric-themed ADC Riot previously mentioned would be arriving in early 2022. The page also said that Zeri is from Zaun and Ekko is a champion related to her.

A separate, new, money-focused support champion is set to arrive a few patches later.

This account reported other info around Zeri and future champion reveals this year:

On the upcoming ADC, Riot’s lead champion producer Ryan ‘Reav3’ Mireles previously said: “We’ll have an electrifying start to 2022 with a brand new bot lane marksman who has been charging up and is rearing to finally get on the Rift.

“We wanted to create a kinetic marksman who’s always on the move, pulsing with sparky determination. A champ who plays the game at a machine gun pace and brings the feeling of a shooter game to the roster. We also really wanted to explore more unique basic attack concepts in League.”

Upcomer also put out a tweet saying Zeri looks very familiar to a new Valorant champion, Neon:

The most recent new champion to hit the rift was Vex.
