All You Need To Know About Valorant 5.07 Patch Notes 

As for the agents, Reyna, Skye, Yoru, and KAY/O are the ones who have received nerfs and buffs. Mostly, these changes were made to bring these agents back into the game and improve their pick-up rates. Let’s talk about the agent changes one by one.

The introduction of Fade has caused Skye’s pick-up rate to decline since it was introduced. Skye used to be one of the most reliable initiators of the game. A solution to this has been implemented by increasing the agent’s flash time. Unlike in the past, you cannot shoot down the gliding light now, so you have no other option but to face the flash or to turn your back.

Here are the details of the changes:

  • The max flash duration of Skye’s Guiding Light now scales from 1s to 2.25s over a .75s charge up after being cast
  • Guiding Light can no longer be shot and destroyed
  • New VFX, UI, and sounds added to communicate new gameplay intent
  • Unequip Delay out of Guiding Light increased .75s >>> .85s

In the years since Yoru launched, he has struggled to become the game’s most noteworthy pickup agent. The Japanese agent is rarely seen in official matches. Even after a complete redesign and a 2.0 version, it was not able to gain traction.

Now, there are some changes, not major but minor for Yoru like the increase of its flash time. 

  • BLINDSIDE (Q) duration increased 1.5s >>> 1.75s
  • Reduced the size of the hologram on the body marker that shows up when dead bodies are turned off.


Kayo’s flash now has some interesting changes. As a result of its increased duration, the overhand flash might now be preferred by players instead of the underhand flash.

Also, the unequip delay of the flash has been increased, making him more of an initiator and not a duelist.

  • Underhand (right-click) flashbang max duration decreased 2s>>>1.25s
  • Overhand (left-click) flashbang max duration increased 2s>>>2.25s
  • Unequip Delay out of both flashes increased .6s >>> .85s

The much-awaited changes for Reyna are here. Her flashes have no improved but the duration has decreased.

  • Wind-up of nearsight effect decreased .6s >>> .4s
  • Range Restriction on Leer removed
  • Nearsight unequip delay decreased: .7 >>> .5
  • Duration decreased 2.6s >>> 2.0s
