Introducing Killjoy.
Valorant - Killjoy

Riot Games revealed that there is a new agent joining the fight in their 5v5 character based FPS, Valorant. When Act II of Valorant begins on August 4, Killjoy will be added in as as selectable agent for you to play as. Killjoy is a German inventor that can "secure key battlefield positions with her arsenal of inventions."

Apparently this includes a bot that can put a debuff on nearby enemies, along with a turret. Yep, she flat out gets a turret that can be deployed at a location and fire in a 180 degree cone. That isn't even her ultimate ability either.

Check out Killjoy's full list of abilities below along with a reveal trailer and some concept art.
