It seems like VALORANT’s newest agent is already causing a buzz.
100 Thieves captain Hiko whipped out Killjoy in a ranked match today, showcasing how devastating her Lockdown ability can be. The ability detains all enemies caught in its radius, rendering them useless for a few seconds.
In a grim three-vs-four scenario, Hiko found himself cornered in the back of Ascent’s B site. In what seemed like a desperation move, the former CS:GO pro dropped Lockdown and started its lengthy windup time.
The VALORANT pro then peeked and quickly headshot a Cypher encroaching onto the site. But the enemy Sage and Brimstone were making their way to Hiko, slowing him and preparing to take him out.
In what looked like a scene from an action movie, the device deployed just as the Sage turned the corner, leaving her defenseless. Hiko quickly headshot her and then peeked to see a Brimstone cowering in a corner.
“No abilities for you,” he said. “Dude, that is so insanely broken. I don’t care what anybody says.”
Despite managing to snag four kills, Hiko was unable to get the ace after his teammate took out the last enemy.
