You might have heard about Killjoy's newest ability - placing turrets under the map. Believe it or not, this update was not intended. We'll be disabling Killjoy until we can patch this exploit.— VALORANT (@PlayVALORANT) December 1, 2020

The Killjoy turret glitch was most prevalent in Haven, with players from all ranks getting increasingly annoyed at people using this exploit to confer an unfair advantage.
Naturally, as the turret is beyond the map's regular playable boundaries, not only is it invisible, it also can't be destroyed. On top of the damage done, it provides intel on the opposing team's positions - an absolutely game-breaking exploit.

This isn't the first time the tech-savvy Agent has been removed from the tactical shooter, as the character was disabled from the game during the Ignition Series immediately after her release to protect the competitive integrity of the tournament.
Killjoy wasn't playable to avoid the sort of exploits and glitches that have seemingly sneaked under the radar in the months following her release.
With the First Strike finals right around the corner, we hope the devs find a quick solution fast to avoid any further complications.
At the time of writing, there's no estimated time for the return of Killjoy to Valorant. We'll update you with any new information as soon as it's available.
