Kinessa is one of the Champions in Paladins.

Lore[edit | edit source]

As a young recruit in the elite Sentinels, Kinessa took to her sniper lessons with an eagerness and enthusiasm that surprised her mentor. Frustrated by the rigors of military life, she left before she could complete her training and struck out on her own.

As the Realm descended into chaos and war, vigilante bounty contracts have been plentiful, earning her all the fame and fortune she'd lacked while in the service of the Magistrate. She still refuses to pick a side in the conflict, however, because there's much more money to be made by playing both sides than by contracting with either.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Kinessa is a damage champion with a sniper rifle that deals huge damage at high range, but she has a lack of movement speed which is compensated by her handy teleport tool, the Transporter. Furthermore she can deal damage over time with her Oppressor Mines. Her ultimate Headhunter will deal 50% increased damage by successful shots made to the upper half of an enemy character.

  • If you look closely, Kinessa's Buster Rifle has the phrase "Read owner's manual before operating" written on it.
  • Kinessa's kill taunt to Barik, "You are a sad, strange little man.", might be a reference to Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story.
