Sorry to be a 'Killjoy'

11:25, 28 Jul 2020

Get ready for a brand new fan-favourite as VALORANT has just leaked Agent Killjoy. Someone at Riot Games is surely going to be in trouble after the mysterious Agent 12 was leaked early when the site was sent live.

Eagle-eyed fans found a temporary page that read, “Enter Killjoy". Although there was no image of what she'll look like, it listed an impressive array of abilities for the latest techmaster. There were placeholders for YouTube videos, and although the page was set to private, the info has started doing the rounds.

The page is written from the Killjoy's POV and reads: "OK Brimstone, I read your Beginner’s Guide. All you needed to say was ⁠- have me on your team". She goes on to say, "I know you like that thing you do when you yell at the sky, but with me, tactics beat firepower. So, let me remind you how I’ve already thought of everything".

One Redditor collected all the Agent Killjoy abilities, and we've got to say, we're pretty impressed. Read on to find out what she's packing:


“Equip and deploy a bot that hunts down enemies who dare to get in range. When my killer robot friend reaches its target, boom goes the idiot. Alarmbot not only deals damage, it temporarily leaves affected targets vulnerable to double damage from all sources. Hold equip if you want to recall your deployed bot.”


“Sometimes it’s good to plant some roots. Deploy a turret that fires at enemies within its 180 degree cone. Hold equip to recall the deployed turret. With my turret, I can hold an area pretty well myself while the others cover the angles I can’t."

“OK check this out. Throw the grenade. When it lands, it goes quiet. Then, activate the Nanoswarm to deploy a damaging swarm of nanobots and catch the enemy crying. I love this trick!”


“You’ll have to adjust your timing for the windup, but once you get this device going, it detains all enemies caught in its radius for about eight seconds. Yeah, enemies can destroy it - except I built plenty more.”

The Killjoy page is still up on the Riot Games site but has been stripped back ahead of an official reveal. Act II is currently being hyped by Riot Games, and if Killjoy's skill set is anything to go by, she'll be well worth the wait.
