Whether you're a seasoned veteran or a newcomer to the character, this guide will provide you with valuable insights and strategies to dominate your opponents on this map. From defending the bomb sites to setting up sneaky traps, we'll cover everything you need to know to become a master of Haven as Killjoy. So, put on your thinking cap, grab your toolbox, and let's get started!

Killjoy Setups - Attacking Side


While Killjoy is often associated with defensive playstyles, she can also be a valuable asset for the attacking team on this map. With her unique abilities, Killjoy can help control areas of the map and create opportunities for her team to push towards the enemy's territory. Especially when it comes to lurking which is commonly known as “rat gameplay” but yet one of the most effective ways to manipulate your attacking side. We will show you the best ways you can use Killjoy on Haven Attack:


A Site:

When we are talking about Killjoy in the attacking side, we’re most likely referring to a way you can “lurk” and manipulate the outcome of the round as a sentinel. Now there are two ways to lurk, you can either fast lurk which is to instantly push after your teammates make a presence in the planned site, or late lurk which is when you wait to ensure no enemies are holding you. 



Both have their times and conditions and we will let you judge that as it’s dependent on the enemy team, so for the particular setup to hit A site:

Start by placing your turret on A lobby on top of the box to cover for any flank coming into late round after you’ve already started lurking. 


Then follow the path shown in the picture, don’t forget to place your alarmbot in front of Garage to prevent any instant flanks on you. 


As you walk your way and get kills on CT, you can finally use your swamp grenades to cover spike. 


B Site:

Coming into B site, there isn’t much that you can do when it comes to lurking except going through Garage. However, we don’t recommend that as defenders will often come out of it to retake against post plant scenarios. 


For a secure setup, place an alarmbot on the left side covering anyone pushing from C link, and a molly right next to it. Then, place a molly on default where you planted the spike. 


Finally, leave a turret in front of window to ensure you don’t get flanked. 


C Site:

When you’re attacking C, taking Garage control is a significant game changer. Start by placing your turret next to window to cover any A flanks, hide on grass until you think it’s time and then walk up into Garage and get your kills. 


If you push into site, make sure you place an alarm bot on Garage Window to get information on the enemy if they cross back to Garage. 


Finally, place your mollies on spike just in case. 


Alternatively, you can go for more control and push to the defenders spawn instead of just taking Garage. 


Placing your turret on the same spot and walking up to Garage, but now you will place your alarm bot on double doors to make sure nobody insta flanks you and then walk up into Garage window and hold spawn. 



Killjoy Setups - Defending Side


With Killjoy’s unique kit of abilities, she is a valuable asset for any team looking to defend key areas of the map. Her skills allow her to set up traps and control areas of the map, making it difficult for the enemy team to push forward. But you can only do so much when you’re lacking knowledge as to how place your utility right, so here are the best killjoy setups to defend your site on haven:


A Site:

In order to effectively defend A site, you need to do this setup. Start by placing your alarm bot on short with 2 mollies on it covering the entire cubby. Then place your turret on top of the wooden box under heaven and play backsite. 


This will almost always guarantee you easy kills on short and make it harder for enemies to push from long without any short support. 


B Site:

For B site, simply place an alarm bot with 2 mollies right on it including the default spike planting area. 


That combined with a turret on top right (top left for attackers) you will definitely knock anybody out of B site. 


C Site:

This is the perfect setup to block any executes coming directly into C site. Place an alarm bot next to C long and two mollies next to each other. This will make it impossible to escape the molly once you’ve stepped into site. 


Don’t forget to place a turret on Garage to ensure that nobody takes that space without you being aware. 

This is an alternative way to hold down C site, by primarily focusing Garage. Mostly better used on Eco Rounds for enemies as they always tend to stack mid. Place an alarmbot with a molly on double doors and play off that. 


Then place a turret on top of the green box on C and a molly on default to delay plant. 



Killjoy Setups - Attack Ultimate Spots

One of Killjoy’s key abilities is her ultimate which allows her to force enemies out to obtain control and space. Her ultimate is superior when taking a site, It is a free card to plant the spike in most cases. However, you do need to consider where you are going to place your ultimate as it has a certain range which if placed improperly will not benefit you as much. Here are the most common ultimate spots for killjoy on the attacking side:


C Site:

Starting with C, which is the least preferred site to hit with your ultimate. It isn’t impossible, but it is quite hard as the safest way to do it is from Cubby and that doesn’t cover backsite entirely. It also leaves platform completely open, so only hit C with your ultimate if you have some nasty molly lineups for platform. 


A Site:

On A, you nearly cover the entire site. All you need to do is clear short and place it in the spot shown above, and then throw your molly towards the right side of heaven and you either get a free kill or have every single enemy running out of site. 


B Site:

For B site, it is dangerous but best bet is to place it on the cubby next to site. You will need teammates to help you cover and fight that, but it is in your advantage to hold that spot and it covers the entirety of B site and Garage.
