Viper passive nerfed after excessive buffs

Viper has shot up the tier list thanks to Riot’s constant buffs to the American Controller. However, she’s been a little bit too controlling. Her Toxin passive does a bit too much damage, shredding enemies to armorless just by walking through her walls or smokes.

Riot is changing that, starting the initial decay at 30 HP instead of 50 HP. This should give Viper and her teammates a smaller window to capitalize on her utility, and makes pushing through it a little bit less scary.

Replication mode added: How it works

Now with the balance changes behind us, it’s time for the fun stuff, and that comes in the form of a new game mode called Replication. The game mode is very similar to League of Legends’ One for All, where everyone picks the same Agent to deploy onto the battlefield.

It’ll be fun and chaotic seeing a million smokes drop from the sky, or five Raze paint shells thrown into a corner. Find the best strategies and relish in the chaos when it launches on Valorant patch 2.09.
