Valorant Patch 2.06 Agent changes –
Riot wants to bring changes to Viper’s abilities while still keeping the original essence of Viper’s theme and gameplay. Riot said, “She should claim ground with force and dare opponents to challenge her.” The following updates for Viper’s abilities are present –
Toxin – Enemies that cross through Viper’s Poison Cloud, Toxic Screen, or Viper’s Pit are instantly inflicted with at least 50 decay. Their decay level increases the longer they remain in contact with toxin. While in cloud, Decay over time decreased from 15 to 10. When out of Viper’s cloud, delay before health regen decreased from 2.5 to 1.5
Poison Cloud [Q] – Can now immediately be redeployed when picked up, but grants a temporary charge instead of a permanent charge. If active when Viper dies, Poison Cloud now remains up for an additional 2 seconds, or until Viper runs out of fuel. Pickup distance increased 200 to 400
Toxic Screen [E] – If active when Viper dies, Toxic Screen now remains up for an additional 2 seconds before deactivating.
