Patch 4.09 Update in Valorant

The latest patch update in the game has brought some significant changes, including a few tweaks made to the game’s agents.

In this patch, we have received quite a few of that, along with some other competitive, quality of life changes and bug fixes.

Agent Changes

Fix for Fade 

Fade was only released recently with the new act and the fan review of the player are mixed. Some like the new sentinel while some think of her as a mid-tier agent. Anyhow, with the new patch, her ultimate ability, i.e. Nightfall, will show lower flickering textures on diagonal walls. VFX has also been added for better visuals and clarity during impact, which is very necessary.

Also, for her Seize (Q) ability, there has been a VFX change to its orb to add a more dynamic presentation in 1p and Agent select screen.

The Chamber nerf

It has been coming for a while now, we all know how overpowered Chamber has been when used properly. Especially Chamber’s trademark, which is a better version of KillJoy’s alarmbot with infinite range. It has been a bit overkill since there are two charges of the Trademark ability. The Chamber nerf is not a massive one but takes care of this issue. Chamber’s Trademark charges have been reduced to 1 from the previous amount of 2. Also, the price for this ability has been increased from 150 credits to 200 credits. The Audio cue for it has also been increased, which is a plus.


Changes to Valorant’s Competitive Mode

  • Party leaders can now transfer the leadership of the party to a different player by using the ‘Make Leader’ option from the drop-down menu.
  • Few adjustments to the UI have been made

Quality of Life Changes

  • The observer can now toggle the scoreboard on/off with the Esports feature enabled

Bug Fixes

  • Tailwind not being activated after curving Cloudburst has been fixed
  • Jett’s ult indicator activation after all Kunais are fired has been fixed
  • Unintended input of ‘use’ has been fixed after Sova’s Owl Drone and Skye’s Trailblazer are used.
