Valorant Officially Reveals New Agent Killjoy (VIDEO)
Earlier this week, the folks over at Riot Games teased a brand new Agent coming to Valorant, the developer’s free-to-play FPS. Naturally, said Agent’s full kit also happened to leak out onto the internet, revealing them to be a female engineer-type character codenamed Killjoy. Now, Riot has revealed the upcoming Agent with a new trailer, finally making it official.
Confirmed to be named Killjoy, the German engineer-type character coming to Valorant is packing some serious heat in her kit. Said kit includes an Alarmbot that will explode after a few seconds and make the victim more vulnerable to any other damage source, a deployable Turret that will fire at enemies within a 180-degree cone, a Nanoswarm grenade that deals AOE damage for a few seconds, and a Lockdown device that, after a warm-up period, will disarm nearby enemies for 8 seconds. Check out the reveal trailer below:
Ignoring the fact that design-wise she’s basically the German equivalent of Persona 5’s Futaba, Killjoy seems like an excellent character addition and a more offensive option for folks that enjoy playing Cypher. As for when Killjoy will be available to test out, she’ll be arriving during Valorant Act II. Since Ignition: Act I is ending in about a week, fans won’t need to wait too much longer for her.
Valorant is now free to play on PC.
