We know Riot Games plans to release a new Valorant Agent in Act II of Episode One. With Act I coming to an end on 2nd August, we expect the new Valorant Agent, reportedly called Killjoy, to enter the game. Now, thanks to dataminers, we can get our first glimpse at a Killjoy animation, and listen to some audio files.
New Valorant Agent Killjoy leaks
Dataminers have found what appears to be an animation in the game's files after the Valorant 1.03 update. This animation reportedly shows Killjoy's ultimate, or an effect on an enemy player.
Since no actual model of Killjoy is available, the animation was applied to Pheonix instead. The results of which you can view below.

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
It remains to be seen if this is an animation on Killjoy, or one of his victims when they get trapped by his ultimate.
While nothing about the new Valorant Agent is confirmed just yet, thanks to leaks it is expected that Killjoy will have a placeable turret. Exactly how the turret will work is unknown, as it could be either automatic or player-controlled.
What we do know for sure is Riot Games will release a new Valorant Agent shortly after 2nd August.
