Valorant adds twelfth agent Killjoy. Riot is adding another heroic ‘agent’ to Valorant, its currently PC-exclusive first-person shooter. The developer has unveiled Killjoy, a fictional genius from Germany who loves building robots. She’ll be added to the game as part of Act II, Riot’s term for in-game seasons, on August 4th, bringing the agent lineup to 12.
Killjoy’s basic abilities include Alarmbot, a sneaky assassin type that waits for an enemy to move within range and then tracks them down, detonating upon impact to leave them in a ‘vulnerable’ state.
She also comes with a special Nanoswarm grenade, too, that you can throw and subsequently activate to unleash a deadly group of robots.
Killjoy’s Ultimate is a tactical Lockdown that, after a certain period, ‘detains’ enemies caught in its area of effect. Riot confirmed that the Lockdown device can be destroyed by the opposing team, though.
