KAY/O was the first Valorantagent Riot began working on shortly after the game’s launch. Riot wanted this character a “back-to-basic” agent that would appeal more to FPS fans.
Ryuan Cousart, Game Designer, explains that FPS players should be able to take the same mastery from other games like throwing grenades and use it in an intuitive way for accessing the outputs of KAY/O. KAY/O players should be able to think about the map, see geo, and make decisions based on it.
