Valorant patch notes 8.09

With the previous patchRiot Games focused on Cypher and Viper. Update 8.09 focuses on Brimstone. With the Shanghai Masters approaching, it's not surprising that there are only very few changes.

Key points to remember about this 8.09 patch:

  • Buff de Brimstone
  • Bug fixes

Adjustments to Brimstone

Portrait of Brimstone

The developers have chosen slightly increase the radius of the smoke bombs of Brimstone, so that the area of effect perfectly matches the area indicated by the interface when you use it.

Concerning Sky Smoke

  • The radius has been increased: 410 >>> 415
  • The targeting cursor in the interface has been enlarged so that the outer edge accurately reflects the smoky surface.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue where you would lose your reticle profiles.
  • Fixed an issue where the "ELIMINATED BY" field was giving incorrect information in combat reports.
  • Fixed an issue where bullet tracks were always visible when the player shot outside the map, even if the option was deactivated in the settings.
  • Fixed an issue where the client would crash after the end of a game and need to be restarted.

All the 8.09 patch notes are available at the official website of Riot Games. It will be deployed on the night of Tuesday 14 to Wednesday 15 May.
