Killjoy has been announced as Valorant‘s next agent by developer and publisher Riot Games.
Available from 4 August — the same date as Valorant Act II — Killjoy “effortlessly secures key battlefield positions with her arsenal of inventions,” Riot said of the character. “If their damage doesn’t take her enemies out, the debuff her robots provide will make short work of them.”
The German agent comes with the following abilities, better seen in action in the video below.
- Alarmbot: EQUIP a covert Alarmbot. FIRE to deploy a bot that hunts down enemies that get in range. After reaching its target, the bot explodes, applying Vulnerable. HOLD EQUIP to recall a deployed bot.
- Turret: EQUIP a Turret. FIRE to deploy a turret that fires at enemies in a 180 degree cone. HOLD EQUIP to recall the deployed turret.
- Nanoswarm: EQUIP a Nanoswarm grenade. FIRE to throw the grenade. Upon landing, the Nanoswarm goes covert. ACTIVATE the Nanoswarm to deploy a damaging swarm of nanobots.
- Lockdown (Ultimate Ability): EQUIP the Lockdown device. FIRE to deploy the device. After a long windup, the device Detains all enemies caught in the radius. The device can be destroyed by enemies.
