Killjoy Is Valorant's New Agent, Officially Announced After Leak

Following a leak, Riot Games has now officially announced the next Agent for its free-to-play shooter, Valorant. As suspected, the character is called Killjoy, and she looks deadly.

One of Killjoy’s abilities is called Alarmbot, and using it deploys a bot that hunts down enemies who get within range and detonates when it reaches its target. Killjoy also has a Turret ability that deploys a sentry capable of shooting enemies across a 180-degree cone. There is also a Nanoswarm grenade that “goes covert” when it hits the ground.

Killjoy’s ultimate ability is called Lockdown. This ability deploys a device on the battlefield that “detains all enemies caught in the radius.” It won’t last forever, however, as enemies can destroy it. You can see an overview of Killjoy’s abilities in the video below.

Killjoy will be available in Valorant with the Act II update on August 4.

Valorant has been in the news a lot lately, most recently thanks to a magpie that swooped into a streamer’s room and ruined his day.
