As we all know, Jett’s dash has been nerfed and there will be now a timer to use her dash. It is said that it’s still as good as it was, but on the attacking side.

  • Upon pressing E, Jett consumes her Tailwind charge and after a .75 second delay, activates a 12-second window where she’s able to dash on next key press
  • Jett’s Tailwind charge can still be regained with 2 kills
  • To keep parity with the changes to Jett dash, the functionality for Dash during Knife rounds in Escalation will be adjusted


Earlier, Sova’s Shock dart and recon animation were also changed. It would have impacted the lineups of players which takes a lot of time to make. But Riot later decided to not implement the change.

However, changes in damage of Shock dart and owl drone is still there.

  • Duration reduced 10s >>> 7s
  • Health reduced 125 >>> 100

    Delay between the first and second ping remains 1.2s


Neon also received some changes in her abilities. As per the patch notes 4.08, damage has been removed from her wall.

  • Slide cannot be cast during equip delay
  • Velocity restriction removed
