Tips and tricks

Killjoy becomes a strong sentinel agent of the game due to her aggressive and annoying utilities. Her turret can be very annoying to deal with as it both deals damage and slows you down if you’re hit by it. A well-used Killjoy on the defense side can be very hard to counter as she can hold sites all be herself. Following are some other helpful tips and tricks you definitely should try out next time you are playing Killjoy;

  • The turret can be used to cover flanks as it gives out that information to the entire team through the minimap.
  • Always use the utilities during the preround (especially in defense) to use them more efficiently. Use your Swarm grenades on common planting spots to avoid enemy plants or place them on the spike you planted to delay or prevent defuses.
  • She can set up well for a possible skirmish but can be weak in the actual gunfights as none of her abilities are fast enough to assist her. So the best thing to do is to set them up and play defensively in a corner.
