It now looks as though Killjoy, the game's next character, has been spotted by data miners scouring through Patch 1.03.
Valorant: Killjoy Revealed
Not only did data miners locate the usual nuggets such as audio files, but they also managed to catch the character's Ultimate ability animation.
Twitter account @ValorantExpress tweeted out the animation, using an in-game model of Phoenix as a stand-in for the hitherto unseen Killjoy.
KIlljoy Ultimate Animation!!!— Valorant Express - Valorant Leaks And News (@ValorantExpress) July 9, 2020
This anim is called DetainedLoopUB. I used the anim on a model of Phoenix because no model of Killjoy currently exists.
Pretty cool find, I can't tell if this anim is for Killjoy, or his "Detained" Subjects. Still involved with his ULT somehow. pic.twitter.com/gl0Ow2bTEH
We're excited to see how another post-launch agent could mix up the game's pretty perfectly balanced meta.
