    Valorant Episode 3 Act 1 is finally here, and as expected, this new season brings lots of new content to the game, including a brand-new agent as well as a new battlepass! The new season of Valorant is now live, and the highlight is no doubt KAY/O, a new agent that’s a machine of war that’s built for one purpose: neutralizing radiants.

    KAY/O’s abilities include:

      • EQUIP a flash grenade. FIRE to throw. The flash grenade explodes after a short fuse, blinding anyone in line of sight.
    • Notable Mechanics
      • Right Clicking the flashbang, throws a charged flash, causing it to only have to cook for 1 second, as opposed to left click throwing a flash that cooks in 1.6 seconds.

    (C) FRAG/ment

    • Official Tool Tip
      • EQUIP an explosive fragment. FIRE to throw. The fragment sticks to the floor and explodes multiple times, dealing near lethal damage at the center with each explosion.

    (X) NULL/cmd

    • Official Tool Tip
      • INSTANTLY overload with polarized radianite energy that empowers KAY/O and causes large energy pulses to emit from his location. Enemies hit with these pulses are suppressed for a short duration.
    • Notable Mechanics
      • While Overloaded, KAY/O gains Combat Stim
      • If KAY/O is killed while overloaded, he is downed and enters a destabilized state, allowing allies to stabilize his core and revive him.
