Ridiculous Valorant bug lets Omen climb walls
Omen should now be easier to take out as he’s teleporting, but harder to track down.
Another Valorant bug has been discovered, and this one allows Omen to scale up and down walls on Split like he’s some kind of Spider-Man Reaper crossover.
Omen is the next Valorant agent in line for some reworks, and developers might want to think about adding this glitch to the list of things to fix.
While his kit already provides more mobility than most other agents in the game, a player named Arrkey showed how his “From the Shadows” ultimate can actually let him climb walls on the Split map.
Arrkey first attached to the ropes located on Split, then activated Omen’s ultimate, which lets him teleport anywhere on the map.
After teleporting to the B site directly next to a wall, he can move up and down the vertical surface as if he was still attached to the rope.
Omen is able to shoot while moving up and down as well, and Arrkey is able to reproduce the bug at several different locations around the map.
Obviously, since Split is the only map in Valorant so far with the ropes, it’s the only one that this glitch will work on, but that doesn’t make it any less annoying.

It’s important to note that the bug only seems to work when you’re up against a wall, so Omen can’t just go floating around in the middle of the map.
Players in the comments of the video also noted that the glitch also seems to work with Phoenix in the same way, if he activates his ultimate while attached to the rope.
This definitely seems like something developers will want to fix sooner rather than later, since it’s a pretty blatant exploit that puts agents in a spot players obviously won’t be expecting.
The good news is that you need to burn an ultimate for the glitch to work, so it probably won’t be showing up every single round on Split.
We should be getting another update from Riot developers sometime this week, since they’ve stuck to a weekly patch schedule throughout the beta, but whether or not a fix for this bug will be included remains to be seen.
