Valorant Update 5.09 fixes Agent bugs, Patch Notes

Riot Games has posted the changes coming to Valorant with the upcoming update. The newest Agent added to the game, Harbor, will face a couple of tweaks due to bug issues. Update 5.09 is supposed to arrive tomorrow, and it’s mainly focused on agent bug fixes.

Other Agents will be tweaked accordingly, as further bugs surrounding these agents have been present in the game. Harbor’s abilities are not the only ones being fixed with the 5.09 update. Instead, Skye, Yoru, Fade, Reyna, and Sage are all getting tuned for a better gameplay experience.

The release of this update will also launch the Soulstrife skin line, becoming accessible in the Store tomorrow, November 2nd.

Valorant 5.09 Patch Notes

  • Fixed a bug where Harbor’s Cascade would sometimes disappear when looking away from it (hotfixed during 5.08 patch cycle).
  • Fixed a bug where walking through Harbor’s Cove barrier was not blinding players at the intended distance (hotfixed during 5.08 patch cycle).
  • Fixed a bug where Harbor’s High Tide would have large gaps when cast in specific map locations.
  • Fixed a bug where Harbor’s Reckoning’s geysers would not spawn on the area where the player was standing.
  • Throughout this year, we’ve been periodically making improvements to Skye’s Seekers so that they more reliably and efficiently reach their target.
    • Small changes were made to how Skye’s Seekers navigate around obstacles after they’ve visually acquired their target.
    • If the target is intangible when the Seekers reach them, it will not debuff them. This includes Reyna while she is Dismissed and Yoru in Dimensional Drift.
  • Fixed an issue where Yoru would still enter his stealth and intangible state if he was detained while casting Dimensional Drift. The detain now properly interrupts the cast.
  • Fixed an issue where Fade could activate her Haunt and Seize projectiles to make them drop while she was Suppressed.
  • Fixed an issue where Reyna would auto-heal after a kill while in Empress even though she was Suppressed.
  • Fixed an issue where Sage could instantly break her Barrier by walling self into a corner.

Evidently enough, the developer is preparing for a more significant update release by the end of the year. There are plenty of surprises coming to Valorant, most of them in favor of the community.
