Valorant: Killjoy, the 12th agent announced for Act 2

Killjoy who had been teased by Riot Games recently officially joined the ranks of Valorant. Watch out for the turrets, because the ingenious German girl is as brilliant as she is teasing and she won't hesitate to use small robots to attack her enemies and protect her allies.

Preferring strategy to big guns, Killjoy developed highly technological skills:


Equip and deploy a bot that hunts down enemies who dare to get in range. When my killer robot friend reaches its target, boom goes the idiot.”

“Alarmbot not only deals damage, it temporarily leaves affected targets vulnerable to double damage from all sources. Hold equip if you want to recall your deployed bot.


Sometimes it’s good to plant some roots. Deploy a turret that fires at enemies within its 180 degree cone. Hold equip to recall the deployed turret.”

With my turret, I can hold an area pretty well myself while the others cover the angles I can’t.


OK check this out. Throw the grenade. When it lands, it goes quiet. Then, activate the Nanoswarm to deploy a damaging swarm of nanobots and catch the enemy crying. I love this trick!


You’ll have to adjust your timing for the windup, but once you get this device going, it detains all enemies caught in its radius for about eight seconds. Yeah, enemies can destroy it—except I built plenty more.

She will be available on August 4, at the launch of Act 2. While we wait to see what she' s really worth in-game, her kit might shake up the meta. Maybe too much? Answer in a few days!
