Riot Games have responded after Valorant players noticed some bizarre bugs with Agent Sova’s Arrow abilities following the recent v0.50 update.

Sova has one of the most unique ability kits out of all the characters in Valorant, equipped with a bow and arrow, the Russian agent requires players to be extremely precise to pull off strong performances.

One key element of Sova’s ability kit is the potential to add ‘bounces’ to the skills such as the Shock Bolt and Recon Bolt, which can be used to target enemies around a corner without being exposed to danger.

Valorant players have noticed some unusual bugs with Sova’s abilities.

Valorant players can add up to two bounces on each ability using Sova’s ‘Alternate Fire’ mode after selecting their arrow of choice, however, following one of the recent patches, fans have started to notice some bugs with the feature.

Following the release of Valorant’s 0.50 patch on May 12, Sova mains have been uncovering bugs that have seemingly broken the agent’s Arrow physics, causing the bolts to go in unusual directions after bouncing off a wall.

While Sova’s arrow is typically meant to go straight, user u/de_tropical highlighted in a clip that abilities such as the Shock bolt could accidentally reflect back on players while trying to shoot around corners.

Valorant fans also noted a glitch with Sova’s ultimate ability following the latest patch, where it would it seemingly only contain one bolt compared to the usual three, before its charges would be completely reset and forcing players to earn it.

Fortunately for fans of the popular Agent, Riot developer ‘rycoux’ revealed that they are already working on a fix for some of the unusual bugs found with Sova.

“Looks like we made a little booboo with some of the physical pieces of the dart. We are working on a fix right now,” Rycoux explained, sharing hope

It still remains unclear just when these issues with Sova’s kit will be fixed, although it is unlikely to take too long with Valorant devs already on the case.

One of the coolest things about Valorant is the range of beautiful and expertly-crafted skins that you can equip to make your weapons stand out. Here’s a rundown of every skin in Riot Games’ FPS, as well as everything you need to know about them.

Valorant has become one of the most popular FPS games in the world. Drawing influence from games like CS:GO and Overwatch, the game and its esports scene have been an instant success.

Alongside the colorful abilities that make Valorant stand out among competitors, another aspect of the game is its skins. Riot Games have always had a knack for developing beautiful skin designs and executing them flawlessly, and Valorant is no exception.

Below you’ll find a detailed list of what skins are available in Valorant, how they are priced and how to get them. However, we need to start off slow, so let’s begin with the skin tier lists.

Skin Price tier in Valorant

Valorant-skin-tier

Just as in other Riot Games series, skins in Valorant are ranked by tier. Select tier is the lowest and therefore cheapest skin line, with Exclusive sitting at the other end of the scale. Let’s dive right into the base prices for each tier and their associated icons in the store:

  • Select Edition (SE), blue circle: 875 VP (~ $7) per individual skin, 3,500 VP (~$32) per bundle.
  • Deluxe Edition (DE), green rhombus: 1275 VP (~$12) per individual skin, 5,100 (~$47) per bundle.
  • Premium Edition (PE), upside down pink triangle: 1775 VP (~$17) per individual skin, 7,100 VP (~$75) per bundle.
  • Ultra Edition (UE), yellow diamond: 2475 VP (~$25) per individual skin, 9,900 VP (~$100) per bundle.
  • Exclusive Edition (XE), upside down orange pentagon: Varies.

Each skin has its own custom animations, reload, sound effects and death animations. Some can even evolve as you level up your weapon, changing the way that the look and react.

Wait, Valorant has evolving weapon skins?

Oni-Skin-Transformation

The short answer is yes, Valorant has evolving skins, but these are only available for some weapons and skin lines. In order to start levelling up your skins you need to partake in the Battle Pass Challenges and start earning Radianite Points.

We’ve got an extensive guide on Radianite skins right here for you, so make sure you’re up to speed before you start deciding which skins to save up for.

As you level up skins they’ll start to do different things, such as include new animations, sounds and more. The higher your weapon’s level, the cooler the skin, so it’s absolutely worth the grind to be able to flex how hard you’ve worked.

OK great, so where can I buy Valorant skins?

Valorant-Store-Screenshot

Skins are available through Battle Pass missions as well as in the store, and often come as all-inclusive bundles upon release.

Individual skins rotate every 24 hours, so if you see something you like it may be worth adding it to your collection.

However, most skins never leave the store so there’s no rush. After all, Riot drop new skins semi-frequently so you never know what’s around the corner!
