This agent is going to be totally AI enemies that exist within the game as dummies and bots. Like every single agent within the game, the studio has granted him a unique array of abilities.

Valorant has finally added a counter to annoying killjoy mains

Nobody likes to go up against an agent like Killjoy, who is famous for anchoring sites all by herself. This agent can produce devastating results, as this agent alone can take out an entire team with rather ease. Thus far, the game did not have any character that can accurately counter her positions and the annoying bots that she relies on.

Judging by the visuals of the trailer, it is fair to assume that KAY/O has an EMP grenade that can deal damage. This can be used to decimate the mechanical abilities that a number of agents have to offer. Not just that, but the studio has also granted him a special ability that allows him to switch mode. At the tail end of the trailer, KAY/O changes his mode.

In this mode, he can gain flash grenades and it is possible for it to gain other abilities as well. This would definitely make him one of the unique agents who can easily take on the role of initiator and duelist if the opportunity arises.

Riot Games needs to release a balanced agent in the upcoming patch

The studio has so far added various agents in the past 1 year, but neither of them was balanced. They either were extremely weak or extremely overpowered that caused major inconvenience. The addition of Raze was nightmarish for the community and the original version of the duelist was straight-up broken. Meanwhile, the latest character Yoru and the oldest controller agent Viper failed to make a positive impact as the community discarded him completely.

The studio had to make serious adjustments to each agent to strike a perfect balance, which created a rather difficult situation in the public lobbies.
