At present, there are around 11 agents in Valorant that players are still exploring. However, recently, someone leaked information about the upcoming Valorant agent, 'Killjoy.'
To be honest, getting a new agent at Valorant is quite interesting. However, many players worry about the ability of leaky agents that are too strong. Also, Hiko, a professional Valorant streamer, thinks that the leaked agent 'Killjoy' could be Riot's biggest mistake.
'Killjoy' Valorant Leakage Agent Abilities
The Valorant developer plans to introduce six new agents in the game each year, starting with 'Killjoy.' According to Leaks, like other Valorant agents, Killjoy also has four capabilities namely, Alarmbot, Turret, Nanosworm, and Lockdown.
The ability of Alarmbot Killjoy deploys bots that "hunt for enemies within reach." Enemies who are caught within reach are vulnerable for a short time and take double damage. Additionally, Killjoy can use towers in the game that can shoot down enemies in its 180-degree cone.
After that, we have the Nanosworm ability that allows players to throw strong grenades. Then, a swarm of nanobots came out of the grenade to kill the enemy in an instant. Finally, Killoy's Ultra is called Lockdown, which slows down all captured enemies within a radius of eight seconds.
So, the two abilities of Killjoy, Nanosworm, and Turret, can kill enemies without firing at them. And according to Hiko, these two upcoming agents' abilities could be Riot's biggest mistake.
Players Don’t Need ‘Another Raze’ In Valorant
When the game is on Alpha, Valorant promises that the ability of each agent will only be there to provide tactical advantages. The developer clearly said that at Valorant "You do not kill with ability."
Unfortunately, according to Hiko, Valorant has broken that promise by introducing Raze. If you've been killed by a Raze grenade, boom bot, or birthday, then you probably know what Hiko is talking about in the video. It doesn't matter how good you are at shooting, if you are in front of Ultimate Raze, then you are dead.

What's worse, however, is that the developer plans to bring in another agent with the same destructive capabilities, which can frustrate many players.
Hiko clearly said that if Valorant planned to bring in more agents like Raze, then they had better introduce more healers to the game as well. Also, according to him, Valorant must have an agent who can use a shield against destructive abilities such as Ultimate Raze.
By the way, all the information regarding the new agent 'Killjoy' came from a leak. So it's still too early to be sure about anything. It is possible that the developer is still working on an upcoming agent and his ability will not be as deadly as is seen today.
