Along with the hype surrounding the Battlepass, a sneak peek at patch 7.04 has been released, giving players a preview of the future changes. Riot Games is keeping quiet about the detailed patch notes but has hinted at changes to Agents, their skills, and core gameplay elements. The main objective is to improve the game’s strategic elements and overall balance in order to make it more engaging for all players.
Agent Changes After Update In Valorant
Jett, who is undergoing a huge revamp, is in the spotlight once more. Her Updraft charges are reduced to one, while her ultimate points are increased from seven to eight. Her Cloudburst’s length will noticeably decrease from 4.5 seconds to just 2.5 seconds, encouraging players to use their movements wisely.
There will also be some gameplay changes for Astra and Skye. While the startup time for Astra’s Gravity Well has increased from 0.6 to 1.25 seconds, the startup time for her Nova Pulse has decreased from 1.25 to 1 second. In addition, Astra’s Cosmic Divide power now has the ability to muffle sound coming from the other side.
Skye’s skills are also changing as this is happening. The casting period of Her Guiding Light will be decreased from 2.5 seconds to a more effective 2 seconds. Her dependable Trailblazer will lose health, going from 100 to 80, and her Seekers will drop from 150 to 120. Skye’s Seekers ability will now cost 8 ultimate points to activate.
Riot Games is making strong efforts to improve the clarity despite the confusion on the Valorant battlefield. In the midst of all the frantic action, they are attempting to make the game more understandable for players by reducing the impact of massive area-of-effect Ultimates and modifying the health of shootable utilities. Players may anxiously anticipate a more balanced and interesting gameplay experience in Episode 7 Act 2 as the terrain of Valorant changes.
