Valorant’s latest addition, Astra has been the victim of a new game-breaking bug. The bug causes Astra to be stuck in their Astral form indefinitely. While being stuck, the character cannot perform any actions for the whole round.
Astra is the latest addition to the playable pool of agents in Valorant. It was released into the game just 2 days ago and can be foreseen as a great support player for any team. Its abilities include launching smokes and creating Astral gravity fields which cause the player to be sucked into them. This allows Astra to be a great self as well as a team-support agent and a viable option in the competitive scene.
When does Astra use her Astral form, hence causing the bug?
Both the smokes and gravity fields can be used with the help of stars that can be placed anywhere Astra wants. The stars can then accommodate either the smoke or gravity field. While placing the stars Astra enters the Astral plane and can place stars anywhere on the map. While in the Astral plane, Astra cannot see other enemies and they can’t see her either.
Their ultimate involves putting down a bulletproof opaque wall in any place of her choice. However, utility and most of the other agent’s ultimates can be used through it. Jett’s knives don’t penetrate the wall and are treated as normal ammunition. They also cloak the players from turret radars and other drones.
What causes the bug?
So far, the source of the bug is still unknown. However, it is known that the bug occurs for the console playing part of the Valorant community. The bug was first seen on Twitch streamer lexeratv.
The problem can potentially cause an early-round handicap for the team and put them in an unforeseen 4 vs 5. Hopefully, the bug is taken care of before it can make any more of an outrage in the community.
