Killjoy is the newest agent in Valorant, arriving in Act 2

If you missed her reveal, you can check out her trailer below:

As for her abilities, Riot released a blog outlining her abilities. Killjoy’s abilities include Alarmbot, Turret, Nanoswarm, and Lockdown. Alarmbot allows you to deploy a bot which “hunts down enemies who dare to get in range.” That sounds violent. Enemies who are hit by the bot will become vulnerable for a short period of time. Therefore, it seems more like a mobile stun rather than Raze’s Bot Buddy.

The Turret is pretty straightforward. Throw it down and it’ll shoot enemies within its 180 degree line of sight. You can also recall the turret by activating the ability again. Use this ability for CC and Denial. Nanoswarm is next. Throw the grenade which hits the ground and settles. You can activate the ability again to release a swarm of nanobots to damage the enemy.

Lockdown is last and looks like Killjoy’s ult. It’ll take skill to time it and position it as you plant. Once it’s planted, it’ll actually lock in anyone it its radius for 8 seconds. Keep in mind, this just prevents your enemies from moving, but they can still shoot the device and destroy it.
