VALORANT: Riot disables Killjoy following “turrets under the map” exploit

Riot Games just removed Killjoy from the agent pool in VALORANT after an exploit was discovered that let her place turrets under the map.

Killjoy was added to the game back in ACT 2. And since her release, she became a vital part of the competitive meta in Valorant. As she is a sentinel type agent, all of her kits are focused on defending a site from attackers.

Her kits like the turrets, nano swarm, and alarm bots are really effective in defending a site. Although after patch 1.11 sentinels agents like Killjoy received some heavy nerfs. Right now, she has to stay within range for her abilities to work. Even after all that, in competitive lobbies, her usage rate was rather high.
