The new 2.06 patch for Valorant brings a variety of upgrades and changes for abilities, respawns, reloads and more. Two of the most exciting changes are for the agents Viper and Yoru, however.
Viper is now more deadly, so much so that you might question pushing into her smoke screen. In fact, Poison Cloud, Toxic Screen and Viper’s Pit instantly inflict 50+ decay and the level of decay increases the longer you remain within her smoke. However, your health regeneration kicks in faster than before, by 1 second, once you’re out of the cloud.
The pickup for Viper’s Poison Cloud has increased from 200 to 400 and can be redeployed immediately with a temporary charge after it’s been picked up. It also lasts two seconds longer if already active when Viper dies. Toxic Screen also lasts two seconds longer after death as well as having an increased full blind distance.
Yoru’s changes have been primed to make him more consistent and reliable as a duelist. His flash duration has increased by 0.4 seconds and activation time has decreased by 0.2 seconds, meaning you can activate a blindside flash quicker and it will last longer. One of the biggest changes is that, instead of being renewed with each kill, Gatecrash replenishes every 35 seconds. You can now also activate Gatecrash within Dimensional Drift.
For a full list of agent and competitive updates in addition to quality of life changes, you can view the patch notes here.
