Riot Games has discovered the upcoming agent in Valorant. It appears that she’s some sort of mechanic as it can place turrets and use grenades. The turret is scanning a 180-degree area and shoots everyone spotted, which may be considered as stopping power. But wait, there’s a lot more she can do.
It will definitely be worth seeing the new female addition covering a bomb site with some sick turret spots, similar to what Cypher can do to stall a rush. Aside from the turrets, her nano swarm grenade is also a vital utility, which can be cruel in some situations. If paired well with her ultimate (Cage that can trap enemies inside), we may see a new defensive leader among the list of agents.
As a celebration of Killjoy’s arrival, Riot Games has launched a reveal trailer that can be seen at the top of this article.
