Valorant Agent Viper received a buff added in Patch 2.07 that was released on Monday. The buff comes in the form of a bug fix that was limiting the effects of her poison. Viper has spent most of her time as an Agent in Valorant at the bottom of tier lists, so she has been the subject of a lot of buffs in recent updates.
Valorant Viper Buff Added in Patch 2.07
The fix that was applied to Viper in Patch 2.07 resolves an issue where enemies would not take the correct amount of bullet damage after being inflicted by her poison. For some reason, the game would have trouble calculating the damage taken while decayed if enemies had armor. This would often leave decayed enemies at one health rather than killing them in a strange and frustrating bug.
Viper's poison received several buffs in Patch 2.06 and now her venomous arsenal looks even more potent after the bug fix. Thanks to the recent buffs, Viper's ability to seal off the enemy team's vision and dare them to advance at the risk of getting poisoned has made her a viable option in high-level play. With Viper being stronger than ever, many pro teams have begun using her in their lineups as she finally seems to have found a spot in the meta.
Valorant Patch 2.07 is now live with balance changes to Raze and Astra, along with quality of life improvements.
