KAYO 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.

Valorant on Twitter, revealed their new agent’s gameplay trailer, Kay/O.

Ahead of Valorant’s next Act, game developers, today revealed the upcoming agent which will feature in their upcoming update. With Kay/O on the agent roster, traditional FPS players will finally be able to play in a much more familiar environment, along with some really intuitive and almost “back to basics” type of inputs.

Joining as an Initiator, Kay/O is known to suppress his opponents’ abilities, making them absolutely void, eventually putting his team into a driver’s seat to pull off a successful capture or retake. Speaking of hitting a specific site, all it would take Kay/O is his special knife ability which would prevent the enemies from using their own abilities.
