Valorant data miners have found new game files including voice lines, believed to be for the unreleased Agent, Killjoy, following the game’s 1.04 update.

Valorant currently has eleven playable characters or ‘Agents’ that players can choose between, each with unique abilities and their own playstyle.

Much like League of Legends, Riot has revealed that they will be adding more characters over the course of the coming Acts, and leaked voice lines have found more clues as to who could be next.

Data miners have found clues around an unreleased Valorant character.

Prominent data miner Mang0eLeaks shared a summary of all Valorant game files that were apparently “added in 1.04” during a Reddit post on July 22.

Mang0e claimed that new voice lines have been added for Reyna, Cypher, and more for the arrival of an unreleased Agent called “Killjoy.”

“Voice-lines were added to characters such as Reyna, Cypher, and Breach for the upcoming and unreleased agent, ‘Killjoy’,” the data miner explained.

The leaked audio, which was compiled by ValorantExpress, included brief snippets of the current Agents seemingly addressing Killjoy in-game and are expected to go live once the character is eventually released.

There were also some sound effects added in the latest patch and many claimed that they could be used for Killjoy’s abilities, with noises of a cannon, similar to those in past leaks about the unreleased character, included in the files.

However, despite these leaks and rumors, Riot Games has not revealed any of their plans to make Killjoy available in the near future.

The other game files included start dates for the upcoming Acts, more cosmetics, and they revealed that a ‘Free for All’ mode, which was also leaked before, was still being tested.

As with all leaks, many of the details shared are still subject to change until it’s officially confirmed. Only recently, Valorant’s lead character designer debunked a handful of leaks about two “old, canceled” characters.


Summit1G explains the biggest issue with Valorant’s Stinger

Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘Summit1G’ Lazar is a fairly accomplished gamer in many realms and genres — but he has vowed to never use the Stinger SMG in Valorant ever again after a rough go of it.

Riot Games’ first foray into the first-person shooter genre has been a success, with many top streamers and pro players from other games immediately falling in love with the gameplay and making the switch to it.

Obviously, while the game is fun, that doesn’t mean it’s perfect, as any player will attest to, whether it be the Agents’ abilities, bugs, or weapons in the game.

Now, Summit has had it with one particular gun: the Stinger SMG. And he’s promised to never use it again.

The Stinger is commonly regarded as one of the worst weapons in the game.

While playing as Omen on Haven, Summit’s team was taking a beating, down 11-3, and he decided to buy the Stinger to see if it can help turn the team’s fortunes around.

As luck would have it, his team did actually win the round — no thanks to Summit’s Stinger, though.

“That’s not my aim, that gun sucks d**k,” he said, as his chat started laughing at some of his missed shots. “You shoot that gun for three bullets before it just does what it wants. I will never buy that gun again, dude. I don’t know how people play like this.”

As specified in our guide to the very best weapons in Valorant, the Stinger is arguably one of the worst guns in the game.

The Spectre SMG is far more favorable in its class, so we’ll likely see Summit opt to use that more in the future if he wants a submachine gun and to rush into the thick of the action. At the very least, we know full well that he won’t be touching the Stinger again unless it gets a considerable buff.
