Written by: Weeii

Kayo is a versatile initiator agent in Valorant, equipped with a powerful set of abilities that can gather information and control the battlefield. One of his key strengths lies in his ability to set up precise lineups, which are pre-determined locations where his abilities will land. These lineups can be used to clear out areas, gather information, and even secure kills.


There are many different KAY/O lineups that can be used on various maps in Valorant, each with its own specific purpose and application. Today we will demonstrate the best lineups for each key location on the map Pearl that will enable you to utilize his kit to the maximum of its ability and ensure the highest chances of winning. 


These lineups will cover all the important aspects such as attacking, defending, and even retaking. Whether you’re a veteran player or just starting out on the agent, this guide will be a step up and great help for your gameplay on Kayo while playing Pearl



Kayo Knife Lineups - Attacking Side 


While initiators are often associated with duelists, they play in a completely different way and adapt various possibilities than what a duelist player would. He is classified as a flasher initiator, meaning that you as a KAY/O need to assist the duelist’s entry, that can be by using precise flash lineups or even suppressing enemies with good knife spots that will help gather information and assist the execute. Here’s how you can utilize Kayo's lineups on attack:


A site on fracture is not easy to execute as defenders usually always contest the space especially on A main making it more challenging for you to move forward. Sometimes, one operator player can be the end of your execute, that’s why this early reveal on A main will suppress and inform you of any sort of aggression. 


To do that lineup it’s very simple, you only need to get line of sight to this corner and throw your knife which will inevitably reveal sand and A main peekers. 


This second lineup is also for A site but in this execute you’ll knife A site instead. Which will give you information about the players on site itself, especially useful if there’s a sentinel playing like cypher or killjoy. 


This second lineup is also relatively simple, as all you need to do is throw your knife towards that spot which will be hard to destroy by players on site. 


For B site, this knife will land high and would not be easy to destroy revealing everyone on Tower, Site, default, green boxes and even more. This makes it so easy to push the site and ultimately suppress any sentinels or utility that might come against your way. 


To do it, come against the boxes on B main and line yourself up with it then look up and find this spot on the leaves of the tree and throw your knife. Give it a few seconds and it’ll land right on top of site. 

Kayo Knife Lineups - Defending Side

It might not seem inevitably clear how important an initiator like Kayo is on defense, but the reality is you play a key part in winning even defensive sides. Utilizing his ability kit to gather as much information as you can on the attacking team’s positioning and moves can be the game changer and lead to victory. Here are the best lineups to defend and gather early information and suppress enemies with Kayo:



Defending A is simple with Kayo. Just one knife that comes through the wall will tag everyone on A main and make them ability-less giving you the chance to aggress on them using utility or just peeking together. 


To do it, look at that spot and throw the knife, best thing is you know attackers will never be able to destroy it. 


This is the best early information knife you can use for B, it reveals everyone on B lobby and it’s very hard to see coming or to even destroy for that matter. 


To do it, come by the corner of Tower and aim just right at that point between the airy gap just as shown in the picture. Then, throw your knife. 

Kayo Knife Lineups - Retakes 


Retaking is a part of playing defense, but it reverses the roles as after you’ve lost site it’s almost like you’re attacking to open site again. With that, you need proper lineups and knowledge to corner attackers and ensure your team gets the lead when it comes to positions and info. Here are the best retaking lineups for Kayo:


Especially while Retaking A you’ll need to suppress the enemy’s utility as attackers often have post plant abilities that will make your time so much harder. Here’s a quick and useful reveal for retaking A site 


To do it, just come to ropes and find this spot on A site and then throw it. It’ll suppress everyone on site. 


This is the perfect retake knife for B, landing exactly where it does when you attack site making it almost like you’re gaining the territory for yourself once again. 


To do it, just peek out, here you’ll need to have teammates around you to make sure you’re safe standing out like so and then aim at the spot. It’ll be quick and it’ll land fast, so you really wouldn’t be as vulnerable.
