Sentinel agent Cypher was removed from Valorant a few days back. However, Cypher was not the only one who was removed, but Astra and Yoru were also among them. Furthermore, the other two agents came back within hours but the fix for Cypher took time.
Cypher is a sentinel agent in the Valorant and is well known for his sneaky gameplay of holding the sites. His abilities of Trapwire (200 creds), cyber cage(100 creds), camera(free -and can be reused after waiting for a span of time), and his ultimate Neural Theft (gets charged in 7 orb points) allows cypher to completely lock a site. Cypher is often picked in large maps such as the breeze and the Ascent.
Why Cypher Was Removed From Valorant?
Recently, Cypher was removed from the competitive agent selection and also from the agent tab on the home page of the game. Valorant officials confirmed that they will be removing Cypher after an exploit was detected.
It was announced on the official Twitter page of valorant. At this stage, fan theories were made to remove Jett too for public reaction and stuff like that. The decision was made on the dawn of 3rd March 2022.
But…we're disabling Cypher everywhere until we can fix an exploit. Send us your energy. https://t.co/96hp30ahWg
