Trivia

Development

  • Killjoy originally had an ability called "Seeker".
  • Killjoy's Ultimate, Lockdown, used to belong to the scrapped agent Joules.
  • Killjoy was originally a male during her first development phase.
  • She also was a robot in some part of development

Lore

  • Killjoy is implied to have created the Spike and the Defuser
    • It appears as if a mirrored version of Killjoy created the spike, with the Killjoy from Earth Prime appearing to be unfamiliar with what was in front of her. She was able to stop the spike from detonating by using a defuser powered by a super-heated Radi-Core that she made
      • Killjoy took the defused spike back to the Valorant Protocol for analysis
      • She also made modifications to the original defuser design
  • Other Killjoy inventions/creations include a sentry bot, an alarmbot, swarm grenades, a 'Lockdown' device, and Brimstone's bracer[2].
    • Sentry bot/Turret
      • It has a face that's looks like the Brazil soccer mascot, however this might just be because Raze tends to mess with her sentry bot, evidenced her voice lines
      • Whilst unable to do so in game for gameplay/balancing reasons, the turret is able to move and run on its two legs
      • It is powered by a Radi-Core
  • Raze stole one of her alarm bots and modified it to create her Boom Bot[2].
  • Killjoy plays League of Legends[3]

Relations

  • She is Brimstone's protégé, and has a close bond with him[2]
  • Whilst not confirmed to be canon, Valorant Twitter released content on April Fools Day 2021 that suggested Killjoy and Raze were romantically involved[4]
