Leaked Valorant agent Killjoy is real - check out her abilities

Riot Games also added a recent post on the game's official site to inform players of some new changes coming in Act II. Whether it's her explosive Alarmbot or her high damage Nanoswarm grenade, Killjoy will be the bane of many attackers' existence next month.

Killjoy becomes agent No. 12 in VALORANT's ever-growing cast of characters and will become playable on August 4 with the release of the game's Act II of Episode 1: Ignition. When my killer robot friend reaches its target, boom goes the idiot.

Shown off in a new trailer today, Killyjoy is an inventor who's entire game plan revolves around securing an area for her team.

Nanoswarm: Want to be trickier with your robotic espionage? After a long windup, the device Detains any enemy caught in its radius.

Major League Baseball has postponed all of the Miami Marlins' games through Sunday after the team's recent coronavirus outbreak. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because test results were not announced.

Turret - A deployable turret that (rather unsurprisingly) shoots at any enemies that come into range of its cone of fire. Yeah, enemies can destroy it-except I built plenty more. Her Turret and Alarmbot both look like they have personalities too, which may indicate that Killjoy prefers the company of her machines over that of people. Once activated, it opens up a swarm of nanobots that damage enemies caught inside its circle.

Killjoy's final ability, Lockdown, feels like one you'd see in a MOBA, instead of in a first-person shooter.

Killjoy is the twelfth agent to join the Valorant team and follows Reyna, who was introduced back in June when the game officially launched. "Characters have abilities that augment their gunplay, instead of fighting directly with their abilities". They already hold Raze and her kit in shallow light, and the reveal of Killjoy's kit seems to be the tipping point where some of them finally came out and said, "Riot is making a big mistake". While the turret can be destroyed, key time in targeting the turret in engagement could be all the Killjoy.
