Developers have observed that Skye players have been banking on the prospect of utilizing guiding light, which previously allowed them to immediately re-equip weapons, offering better chances to take on dazed opponents. Moreover, the cost of Seekers ability is increased to balance the agent further.

  • Guiding Light
    • Unequip time after projecting or bending the Guiding Light projectile is increased from 0.5s to 0.75s.

    • Ultimate ability cost increased from 6 to 7 units.

The notoriously overpowered agent now faces a significant nerf to her ability usage, which previously allowed her to throw more smoke projectiles and deal unequal damage within her Bladestorm ultimate ability.

  • Cloudburst
    • The number of total charges reduced from 3 to 2 units.
  • Bladestorm
    • ALT. FIRE kills no longer recharge the Kunai.
    • ALT. FIRE damage points and multipliers will mirror the effect with the FIRE button.

Valorant Game System Updates

The Game System Updates feature a fix for players using the Public Beta Environment (PBE) and the live version of Valorant. Another feature clears a bug with calling timeouts for Professional Valorant Team Coaches.

  • User’s settings for both game versions are now split, with the ability to retain individual settings for each version despite switching between them.
  • Coaches now default to All Chat instead of previously limited Team Chat to clear bugs related to /timeout or /to command.

Valorant Bug Updates

The two known bugs present within the game pertain to a particular Map and Social features.

  • Icebox Minimap and vision cones will now correctly present the callout of Near B Yellow.
  • Deathmatch penalties should no longer prevent players from getting banned for AFK-ing.
