Valorant players who didn't like Raze will likely not be happy to see Killjoy's kit since her abilities can kill too. This German agent will excel at defending zones, making her invaluable every map.

Killjoy's abilities have both utility and damage mixed in and it's the latter part that will probably not sit well with Valorant players.

Her Alarmbot will seek out enemies that enter its detection radius. The bot explodes upon reaching them, dealing damage and marking them as vulnerable which means the enemy will take double damage from all sources for set period of time.

Turret is Killjoy's ability that is self-explanatory. Deploying one will give it detection cone of 180 degrees where it will shoot any enemies in line of sight. It currently looks like a great tool to set up crossfire zones and pretty much guarantee kills on anyone that approaches.

Nanoswarm will at similarly to Cypher's wall. You can deploy it on the ground and then reactivate it at your whim to kick off its AoE effect. This one damages enemies instead of snaring them though.

Lockdown is Killjoy's ulti that can detain enemies in a wide radius. It has a long windup time and the device is vulnerable to gunshots so it will take getting used to.

Agent Killjoy will join the fold on August 4, 2020, along with her contract. It includes three sprays, two titles, one gun buddy, one player card and Killjoy herself.
