Valorant: Riot Games’ multiplayer shooter is updated with new features, which are primarily focused on “keeping Valorant healthy.” Valorant, the successful title from the creators of League of Legends for PC, continues to be updated with new features. Patch 2.09 is born at the gates of phase 2 of the VCT Masters, so they rule out making drastic changes for the moment. Anyway, they have made adjustments to the instant decomposition e Viper, not to mention the changes to the Breeze map and game system improvements, as well as bug fixes. Limited Time Copy mode is also incorporated.

Regarding Viper, they comment the following: “With the change in Toxin numbers, we believe that we can maximize the playability around the smoke without giving up the overall advantage it provides to Viper,” they explain. Before, the enemies went through the smoke and went through it like Pedro through his house, but “with the instantaneous decomposition, this has changed” in a remarkable way. It should be noted that they have eliminated “some of the most unbalanced effects that it had with 50 decomposition”, such as the combination with Marshal to achieve kills with a single shot or the impact it has in gun rounds.
Toxic / Passive: The instantaneous decay received when entering Viper’s smoke or passing through Viper’s wall has been reduced from 50 to 30.
