Crazy Valorant bug lets Sova ride his drone after Patch 1.11

As Valorant patch 1.11 takes over Future Earth, players are reporting countless numbers of bugs. One of these allows Sova to jump on his drone and zoom around the map. 

Sova is one of Valorant’s most infamous characters. The Swedish archer has the power to make or break the game in the right hands, as shown when former CS:GO pro shroud dominated every map he played on the sharpshooter.

One of his most complex abilities is his Owl Drone, which whilst allowing you to rain terror from the skies also lets you shoot Marking Darts that stick to enemies and make them visible at all times.

The power of this drone, however, has been accidentally increased by a new bug found in the newest update that is taking reddit by storm.

Sova is already terrifying enough without this new bug…

You better believe you can fly

Reddit user Gaurav-07 took to Valorant’s official subreddit to complain about the bug, as well as posting a YouTube video. His comment received a wave of other players noting that they were experiencing similar problems.

In his post, Gaurav-07 notes that the bug “glitches and interferes with Sova’s character model”, proceeding to wish Riot “good luck in squashing that bug”.

In Gaurav-07’s video, Sova can be seen jumping on top of his Owl Drone and flying around the map causing sheer chaos.

While several other players uploaded fun videos of them doing the same thing, many have acknowledged that this bug is actually game-breaking. It provides Sova players with easy lines of sight, mitigating any tactical advantages that other agents and different maps have.

In turn, it makes the game harder to play for the enemy team as well as a lot less fun. So yes, the bug is great for montages like Gaurav-07’s, but Riot will need to implement a fix pretty soon if they don’t want a wave of complaints and upset customers.

Additionally, as 1.11 has been announced as a playable patch for the upcoming First Strike tournament, something needs to be done about this – quickly.

The era of ‘red dots’ littered across Apex Legends’ menu tabs will finally come to an end after Respawn confirmed they’re implementing a ‘mark all as seen’ button to the game.

Apex’s bustling community is rejoicing after the developers indicated the long-awaited quality of life update that is scheduled for the next patch, if everything goes to plan.

While fans of the game have known for a while that the feature was pending, there hasn’t been much news of it since seeing it on Respawn’s Trello board a while ago. Since the conversation’s gone dark, it’s been a waiting game to see if the developers would follow-up on the organizational feature.

Well, an inquiring fan created a mock-up of what the ‘mark all as seen’ button could look like within the character-select screen. But fiction turned into reality once Respawn Senior Game Designer, Daniel Z. Klein, chimed into the discussion.

The red dots on tabs have cursed the Apex Legends menu screen for a while.

“Could we get a ‘Mark all as seen’ button? Would be useful instead of going through all the menus to clear the icons,” user ‘TigerTankSniper’ suggested, before Klein was happy to oblige.

“Good news! That’s probably coming in the next patch! John Hodgson put that one in not too long ago,” Klein was happy to report. Hodgson is another Senior Game Designer at Respawn, who’s about to make a lot of the Apex fans really happy.

Since the launch of Apex Legends back in February 2019, there’s been a ton of content regularly injected into the battle royale. This stretches from Legends, weapon cosmetics, sky trails, holo sprays, voice lines, banners, and a lot more.

As much as the fans have loved adding troves of content to their personal libraries, everytime something new gets added a small red dot appears to notify players of the change.

“I have an army of them because all the useless blue and white items I get, not really motivated enough to click on all them so now it just keeps growing bigger and bigger,” one person wrote.

The thing is, those little indicators can be persistent and a bit of a bother; hence, the quality of life update that’s coming into the game very soon.

But the community can let out a collective sigh of relief seeing as they shouldn’t be a problem in Apex Legends after the next update.
