The new agent has a massive range of abilities that is aimed at disabling enemies. It seems like Riot Games studio was trying to create an agent that can counterplay various gadgets. The community desperately needed an agent, which can offer some countermeasure against several powerful gadgets like alarm bot, turrets, Rocket launcher, and more.

He can cover a massive area of effect with his basic (C) ability “FRAG/MENT”. The grenade explodes three times in the same location that can kill anyone that gets exposed to it. This is basically an exploding grenade that works exactly like Killjoy’s swarm grandees.

His second ability (Q) Flash Drive allows him to toss a flashbang that blinds anyone in its line of sight. Players can also use alternate fire to toss an underarm throw, which will allow you to use it as a pop flash. He can help his teammates to take over an area, while the ability’s alternate fire will allow him to peek and secure frag easily.

He can also toss a knife with his (E) ability ‘Zero-Point, which will allow him to suppress anyone in a massive area. This can go through walls and it can disable an agent completely while it can also cancel certain ultimate abilities as well. On impact with an agent, this ability can suppress agents from using their abilities.

Finally, his ultimate ability “Null/CMD” will allow him to disable enemies in a massive area of effect, which will force agents to rely on gun duels. Both Zero-Point and “Null/CMD” are tailormade for disabling enemies, as he can foil post-plant scenarios.

Lastly, KAY/O can be revived after he gets gunned, and in this state, his HP pool will become 900. His teammates will have 15 seconds to revive him, as the agent lays knockout on the battlefield with only its camera turned on.
