All You Need to Know About Killjoy, the Upcoming Agent in VALORANT

By Arjun Nair 32 Views

The highly anticipated VALORANT agent, Killjoy, is set to make her debut in the game soon. Riot Games has been teasing players with hints and clues about her arrival.

In a recent trailer released by Riot on July 29, players got a sneak peek at Killjoy’s abilities and gameplay. She appears to be a skilled engineer with a range of high-tech gadgets at her disposal.

Who is Killjoy?

Although no official information has been released about Killjoy’s background, some players speculate that she may have German origins. The leaked voice lines and images suggest that she is an engineer, with her abilities revolving around mechs and technology.

Killjoy’s Abilities

Thanks to leaks and teasers released by Riot, players have a good idea of Killjoy’s abilities. Here’s a breakdown of each one:


Equip and deploy a bot that hunts down enemies and deals damage. It also leaves affected targets vulnerable to double damage from all sources. The bot can be recalled at any time.


Deploy a turret that fires at enemies within its range. It can cover an area and provide additional defense.


Equip a grenade that can be thrown to deploy a swarm of damaging nanobots.

Ultimate Ability: Lockdown

Deploy a device that detains all enemies caught in its radius after a long windup. The device can be destroyed by enemies.

Based on the limited information available, Killjoy seems to excel at both defending chokepoints and pushing bombsites. Her abilities make her a strong defensive player, but her effectiveness may vary depending on the current meta.

As of now, Riot has not officially announced Killjoy’s release date. However, based on the roadmap poster, she is expected to be revealed during the second act of VALORANT, which is set to launch on August 4.

Players eagerly await Killjoy’s arrival, and we can’t wait to see how she impacts the game and the strategies players will develop to counter her.
