Valorant’s newest agent was recently officially revealed following an accidental leak on the official website. The agent is called Killjoy which is ironic, considering how elated and excited we were upon hearing the news. Taking a look at her abilities which include turrets, grenades, and traps which she can spring upon enemies, we can safely say that she packs a lot of punch.
The news didn’t really catch players by surprise as earlier this week, Riot’s website had displayed info and some videos about Killjoy’s abilities. Though the information was quickly removed some data miners did manage to catch the info.
New agents are always exciting because they result in a meta change and make the game more challenging and fun to play. With the turret ability, Killjoy can deploy a turret which scans a 180-degree radius and shoots any enemy it sees. This may prove especially useful in scenarios where one needs to guard multiple angles and doorways.
Killjoy’s abilities include:-
ALARMBOT: A bot that hunts down enemies that get in range. Once the bot reaches the enemy, it explodes, applying Vulnerable.
TURRET: Deploys a turret that fires at enemies in a 180-degree radius.
NANOSWARM: A grenade that deploys a swarm of nanobots that deal damage.
ULTIMATE ABILITY – LOCKDOWN: Deploys a lockdown device that detains all enemies in a certain radius.
Riot Games has said that Killjoy will release along with Act 2 on August 4.
