Valorant has many characters that utilize different abilities to fulfill their roles in the game. These characters are Agents and have unique talents for specific tasks. Players have utilized throwable abilities to win games from a safe distance.

Kay/O is an Initiator Agent by role in the game. His abilities revolve around detecting, disabling, and disorienting enemy players. He also has a high damage output grenade ability that can be thrown remotely to flush out enemies from their positions.

Haven is a massive map with three bomb sites with multiple low-rise roofs. It makes the map very suitable for Agents like Kay/O to utilize lineups to either attack or delay attackers as a defender. The map has several nooks and crannies that players like to play. These can be cleared from a safe distance using lineups and other utilities.

It is important to note that the following lineups are performed in LOW graphics settings.
