Valorant 7.09 Patch Notes

Valorant 7.09 patch introduces several agent adjustments to bring balance between Sentinels. Cypher's Trapwire now concusses enemies in half the time and has an extended slow effect. Additionally, Trapwire can now reset itself after catching an enemy. Skye's Trailblazer and Fade's Prowler creatures are also being updated in the Valorant 7.09 patch to navigate under Cypher's Trapwires strategically placed. 

Raze receives a Nerf to her Paint Shell grenade, reducing its explosion and damage radius and Blast Packs (satchels) now require full arming before dealing damage, with an increased arming time. 

In terms of weapons, the Judge shotgun has its maximum magazine size reduced, and its effectiveness while moving is decreased in the Valorant 7.09 patch. The Premier mode also sees various additions, including timeouts, practice queues, and matchmaking adjustments. The points required to qualify for playoffs are lowered, and team creation is streamlined. 

Apart from the upgrades, there is a minor bug fix to the gameplay system in the Valorant 7.09 patch. A bug causing footstep sounds upon detaching from a rope is fixed.

Valorant 7.09 Patch - AGENT UPDATES

Dev Notes: In this patch, we’re looking to address some issues in the balance of power between Sentinels, especially Cypher, and some other Agents on the roster. Sentinels often craft very deliberate setups only to have Agents like Raze, Skye, and Fade destroy them with typical utility use. In this patch, we’re updating Cypher’s Trapwire (C) to try to sway these interactions more in his favor and to encourage enemy Agents to be more intentional and deliberate if they aim to use their utility to counter Sentinel setups.


  • Trapwire (C)
    • Decreased the time until the trap concussed a captured enemy 3 >>> 1.5 seconds.
    • After concussing an enemy or an enemy in the trap was killed, the Trapwire (C) no longer destroys itself but instead re-arms after 0.5 seconds, allowing it to ensnare another enemy.
    • The duration of tag slow when hit by the trap increased 0.75 >>> 2 seconds.

These changes to Skye and Fade are meant to add more strategic depth to the placement of Cypher’s Trapwire.


  • Trailblazer (Q)
    • Adjusted Trailblazer’s collision so that it goes under Trapwires placed at mid-height. This won’t affect the hitboxes for weapon damage.


  • Prowler (C)
    • Adjusted Prowler (C) collision so that they go over Trapwires placed at foot height and under Trapwires placed at head height. This won’t affect the hitboxes for weapon damage.


Raze will have to be more precise with her Paint Shells (E) in order to deal damage to enemies, including destroying enemy traps. Additionally, Raze will need to be more intentional in picking between using the Blast Pack (Q) for mobility or damage.

  • Paint Shells (E)
    • Primary grenade explosion radius 6m >>> 5.5m.
    • Secondary grenade explosion radius 6m >>> 5.25m.
    • Primary grenade explosion minimum damage 15 >>> 1.
    • Secondary grenade explosion minimum damage 15 >>> 1.
    • Damage multiplier to enemy utility 250% >>> 100%.
  • Blast Pack (Q)
    • Satchel doesn’t deal damage until fully armed.
    • Satchel arm time increased 0.5 seconds >>> 1.5.

Valorant 7.09 Patch - WEAPONS UPDATES


With the changes below, we’re sharpening the Judge’s identity as a hunker-down style shotgun by reducing some of its effectiveness while moving. With the reduced mag size, we’re hoping to create more opportunities for enemies to catch a person reloading their Judge as well as nudge the person with the Judge to be more efficient in order to get multi-kills.

  • Reduced max mag size from 7 >>> 5
  • Increased Jumping spread from 1.25 >>> 2.25
  • Increased Running spread from .10 >>> .75

  • Updated the icons that appear in the Friends List when friends are playing other Riot Games.
    • We now detect people in Riot Mobile and TFT and display unique icons for people playing these games.
      • People who are online in Riot Mobile have a "gray dot" Player Card Image.
    • The failsafe "Unknown Product" icon is now a red Riot fist instead of the gray dot.
    • Updated the icons shown for people in LoL, LoR, and WildRift.

  • Playoff Qualification Threshold
    • We’re lowering the qualification threshold in this stage to 600 points. We recognize that during this busy time of the year, it can be harder to schedule your team’s matches so we wanted to make it more forgiving if you have to miss a week.
  • Matchmaking
    • We've made some slight adjustments to find you fairer matches during the weekly matches.
  • Zones
    • Some regions can't support the same number of divisions, so we've made adjustments to certain zones to support generally healthier queue times and improved match fairness.
