The newest patch note of Valorant patch note 2.11 unable to bring anything exciting to the table. Players were hoping for some interesting upgrades from Riot this time around. As Jeff Landa the communication associate for Riot Games has said ““I know, after skipping Patch 2.10 you expected fireworks. Just look at this patch as the quiet before the Episode 3 storm”. And it looks like Valorant players will not be disappointed this time around as Riot is releasing their 17th agent. With Episode 3 Act 1 a new agent will be coming to Valorant named KAY/O. This new agent will be coming to Valorant in its newest patch.
The image shows that the new agent will be a more robotic agent than most. This new agent seems like it will be an exciting new addition to the already diverse group of agents present. The Valorant Wiki states that “KAY/O is a machine of war built for a single purpose: neutralizing radiants. His power to suppress enemy abilities cripples his opponents’ capacity to fight back, securing him and his allies the ultimate edge.” This shows that KAY/O is indeed a machine agent and one that was built for battle. And it looks like this new agent will bring with it some unique abilities as well. With a more robotic appearance it seems that KAY/O will have a sort of computerized personality. Most likely without throwing out any catchphrases and rather letting his guns and abilities do the talking.
What Are The Abilities Of Valorants Newest Agent?
KAY/O seems to have two basic abilities. One is Fragment and the other is flash drive. Fragment which lets you equip an explosive fragment which you can throw. The fragment sticks to the floor and explodes multiple times, dealing near lethal damage at the center with each explosion. This explosion seemingly lasts for around 4 seconds. So if you see this fragment coming towards your player, it’s best to avoid it at all cost.
The second ability flash drive lets you equip a flash grenade which you can throw. The flash grenade explodes after a short fuse, blinding anyone in line of sight. The blinding effect will last for around 2 seconds. This is enough time for your player to blow the enemy away with your guns.
The signature ability of KAY/O is zero point. This signature ability will let players use a suppression blade which you can throw. The bade will stick to the first surface it touches and cause a small explosion area. And any player within the explosion area will be suppressed.
The ultimate ability of KAY/O is null/cmd. This ability will instantly empower KAY/O and most likely give him a boost. As well as emit pulses from his location which will suppress enemies hit by the pulses for a short period of time. If KAY/O is killed while overloaded, he is downed and enters a destabilized state, allowing allies to stabilize his core and revive him. Meaning that if KAY/O dies while in his ultimate a teammate can revive him into the match.
Episode 3 act 1 has started on June 23rd and with this KAY/O will also be introduced into Valorant as the newest agent. This should be an interesting first act. With episode 3 starting off high, players will have high hopes that Riot will keep bringing them new and interesting updates as act 2 and 3 come along.
