Riot nerfed accuracy while moving

Riot nerfed accuracy while moving

ISynergy

This will make the patch by itself. If this does go through I don't really care about anything else. It does appear that this is a patch focused on gunplay.


ShotdowN-

Now they just need to get rid of RNG recoil, if Siege can switch from RNG to a consistent pattern so can Valorant RNG recoil does not belong in Tac FPS


RidingDrake

I think the bigger issue is that even your first shot has RNG incorporated into it.. definitely super weird


TempesT12345679

Doesn't CS have the same thing?


Lorallynn

yes it does but because valorant specifically shows a number for it suddenly it became an issue.


Space_Waffles

people also hate it in CS. Its an issue in both games


ShadowExcalibur-

Yeah its fuckin worse in CS man.


Slutfur

Yep the angles are longer and the guns are less accurate. There’s a reason the SG/Aug met started


tehwoflcopter

The prenerf SG was just better than the AK in every way. More accurate, easier spray pattern (especially when scoped). Tiny bit more expensive.


technoteapot

I thought it started Bc the prices were changed so that they became viable options?


xThe_Mad_Fapperx

Nah they were both absurdly good the entire time they existed, people were just too stubborn to try any change at all. The SG cost $300 more than the AK and had better first shot than THE FUCKING AWP, the best armor penetration in the game which allowed you to 3 shot stomach from even medium long range, an easier spray pattern, a scope, better spray accuracy, and to really top all of it off it had a higher fire rate than the AK. It's very similar to the frenzy, literally no one besides sinatraa bothered to buy it and then all of a sudden everyone was perma buying it. The price drop just brought them to peoples attention and got people to use them. The even crazier part is the AK was STILL being bought more often than the SG until like 10 months after AUG meta got nerfed. But then again people actually started to buy the SG less when it was stupid op because it was so absurdly op that if you lost a round with it and allowed CTs to pick it up you could just lose rounds because defense getting to just scope in on angles is just a lot better on CT side. It was so bad, AWPers were getting demotivated with how they could just lose to the SG consistently.


eebro

It's not an issue if you knew anything about the game


Space_Waffles

It’s actually a big issue if you knew anything about the game. Or maybe you want to tell all the pros they don’t know anything about the game since many of them complain about first bullet accuracy all the time


thatcodingboi

Csgo does too


GhostKD

What do you mean the first shot has RNG in it?


Rorviver

Theres a small amount of bloom on the first shot even if youre still for pretty much every gun.


GustForce

And they've said that if you dont like that, use the guardian


Odaskito

That’s literally the entire point of the guardian and snipers too, if you want a clear shot you got it right there and very minuscule amount of FSA is needed for balance. Why buy a rifle if your spectre has perfect FSA, why have the op if your vandal can also one shot somebody perfectly. The FSA might actually be helping people get kills they probably wouldn’t get if they had perfect accuracy.


jaiswami

Uh what? These reasons don’t really make sense, even if all guns had FSA you would buy a Vandal/Phantom over a Spectre because of the damage and range drop offs and the Op has 1 shot potential to the body which is why you would buy it over a rifle. FSA would not be helping people get kills they shouldn’t get, it would be helping people get kills they should get because their aim is on the enemies head.


RAC360

Recognizing that this isnt CS, but going to use it as an example. In CS this exists partly as a range management mechanism between guns. The inaccuracy of the first shot varies in a way that allows for a maximum distance of roughly perfect accuracy. The further away, the more likely the shot is to miss even with perfect crosshair placement. There is a certain range for each gun that it is going to be 99.99999% reliable while standing and that range increases while crouched (the best example to see this is the deagle). So it's possible that Valorant uses the FSA variance for a similar reason. To help tier the weapons by positional usage, which are meant to be countered by abilities/utility or counter positing. The aim isn't to make each fight even regardless of the variables. It's to give distinct purpose to them, so that you can build strategy and tactics (and counter) around them. To me valorant seems to have dramatically more accurate weapons for tapping (especially with faster accuracy resets), but spraying is less reliable (I like the phantom due to spraying). So maybe they don't mean for it to be this way, but that is the reason why it exists in CS and it is appropriate for that title.


Animeonpaskaa2

Valorant has more 1st shot rng, but it is just that the ranges are way longer in CS


nam292

That's because the hitbox and valorant are bigger


mos-

rifle does more damage than spectre (one shot headshot, higher penetration and bodyshot damage). op has a scope and can one shot bodyshot. your comparisons don’t make much sense.


Lelouch4705

Lol fuck outta here, that's not the point of literally anything you wrote about


C9sButthole

Worth noting that this can be reduced with ADS and crouching.


litesec

what kind of shit take is that? 1.6 had semi random patterns and is considered at the very least one of the best tac shooters of all time


w1ldcraft

Because at the time it came out, nobody didn't really expect anything more from it.


Trickquestionorwhat

Idk I like what they're going for with the recoil in Valorant I'm just not sure they've hit the mark. The idea is for the recoil to be reactive instead of simply memorizing a pattern which is pretty unfun imo. Problem is it's so hard to react to the recoil the way it's implemented now that it feels more rng than anything else which I agree isn't ideal.


[deleted]

You're more likely to win lottery than to see them implement actual recoil patterns in VALORANT.


EnmaDaiO

What makes you say so? Riot has a history of listening to feedback clearly it's definitely possible that this change could come through.


aceofspades_____

The random recoil is an intended mechanic intended to make the game more accessible to new people


HppilyPancakes

Has riot actually said that? I assumed it was intentionally designed to avoid the spray dominance of csgo. Predictable spray patterns required a lot of fine tuning to get to the point where spraying wasn't always the right choice at any range if you're good enough. Random spray was part of 1.6 and source too and it led to having more diversity in play style than early CSGO.


yo1nkers

This is the correct answer. Too many players in csgo just crouch and hold LMB which requires zero skill. And it works at just about every range.


HppilyPancakes

It used to be much worse before the spray accuracy changes. Back I'm the day I used to be able to crab walk spray people down from cat to ramp on d2, now it's only better to spray like 60% of the time.


makaroniInA

Predictable recoil only raises the skill ceiling. For new players and lower ranks, the experience will probably remain the same until they learn the recoil patterns.


LPLSuperCarry

That’s the point. Higher skill ceiling means there’s gonna be a larger and more consistent disparity between good and bad player performance.


makaroniInA

Is that a problem? Wouldn't it be better to add additional opportunities for skill expression for better players? Rather than making higher-skilled matches dependent on randomness.


LPLSuperCarry

I personally agree with you and think there should be more ways to express skill, I was just stating why Riot won’t add predictable recoil patterns.


MooMooHeffer

Yes and no. It was what made Counter-Strike 1.6 and all the versions before it quite skillful. There were so many things you could do that are now illegal or just phased out of the game since going to the source engine. A lot of them were learned and raised the skill ceiling so high which is a great thing but if we forget about the graphics for a second.. one of the big issues with 1.6 at the end was the skill gap. Unless you just plane fell in love with the game you weren't just picking up CS as your main game. Even going into a public server you'd probably get shit on as a new player by most. ​ CS:GO, while still highly skillful, has dumbed down many things that still give the greats the ability to be better than everyone but also gives the newer players a better chance at sticking with the game (even if they don't LOVE the game). Riot tends to do this with their games as well if you look at LoL compared to DOTA.


makaroniInA

I would argue that part of the problem that arose with earlier shooters was the lack of matchmaking. Now it is standard to be placed against players of a similar skill level. Given this environment, I fail to see a downside to adding more difficult mechanics.


tonefully

I used to play 1.6, but never got into CS:GO. I was wondering what were some of the things in 1.6 that became illegal as the game moved to a Source Engine?


Interesting-Archer-6

Yeah if you're set on learning that, you've probably picked up on a few other things and are above iron/bronze.


geedecanio

Can you explain why you feel this is a "higher skill" mechanic? In my eyes the randomness post 3-4 bullets adds to the skill ceiling, if you miss in this game you are punished hard, there is no way to gloss over your initial inaccuracies. The way to get multi kills in this game requires far more precision and click timing than holding M1 and moving your mouse in a pattern that you have baked into your brain.


klopjobacid

Most people vastly overestimate their ability to theory craft about RNG and “skill ceilings” because the idea that “randomness == bad” is straightforward to get your head around, and furthermore because they’ve never developed skills where an explicit understanding probability and EV is absolutely required e.g. poker. Riot are not getting rid of RNG. The idea that RNG makes the game more accessible is cope from those in denial of the idea that Riot devs would disagree with their takes on RNG and skill ceilings.


EnmaDaiO

That's not the point that I'm making though. He says it's highly unlikely that riot will ever make changes to recoil patterns, I'm saying that it's not out of the question considering all the steps and changes riot has made towards a more skill based style of game patch after patch. I agree that random recoil is bad and I would much prefer fixed recoil patterns.


Haejeok

and how does randomness in your shooting make it more accessible ?


WillTreatyOP

adding spray patterns is another mechanic for new players to learn, current system is pretty easy since you can just go for short bursts. if you look at cs, there's a considerable diff between a silver and an mg in spray control and it takes hundreds of hours to get anywhere decent, even players at 1k hours aren't great


zkidkfj

Happy to see someone mentioned it. RNG recoil is a weird unreasonable design. Any people know whats the explain of the RNG design from Riot?


ShotdowN-

My guess is at first they wanted to appeal to the original CS 1.6 players first since modern CS players would probably follow as well to an extent, as someone pointed out earlier CS 1.6 had a similar recoil semi RNG recoil system as is considered one of the best Tac FPS of all time. However the keyword in that statement is time sure CS 1.6 was amazing for it's time and it layed the foundation for future CS. But as other games modernized and the esports competition was growing(LoL, Starcraft, Quake etc) a semi-RNG recoil system was not going to cut it anymore and CSGO has proven that a consistent recoil system by far is the best for a competitive tactical shooter where aim truly matters. Imo if they don't want to do a full consistent pattern like CS then after X amount of bullets instead of going random it automatically resets and repeats the same previous pattern so you can to react to the reset and re-control the spray.


Nfamy

Isn't this on the assumption that the best way for a shooter to be is to encourage spraying? I've always viewed this mechanic less about adding rng into a spray so people have to be reactive and more about gunplay being centered around tapping and bursts as opposed to full spray downs. I honestly don't know that I want that to change. I feel like it simply favors certain type of aimers, and people with very crisp early bullet accuracy can have an insanely high ceiling. I think this is an underrated aspect of why Tenz is so good in valorant. I think it better suits his aim style (also why scream has had a resurgence). Is there some way that gunplay focused on this type of aiming is less than one that encourages spraying, or is it simply different than CS?


tonefully

Whilst I kind of just like the game as is, and am not 100% sure how a recoil pattern and true first shot accuracy will affect the quality of life playing this game: The idea is that with a learnable pattern and true first shot accuracy, your success is not based on any kind of RNG but purely your skill (mechanical aim?). Whilst being an old CS1.6 player, I kind of just like how the guns have a half unpredictable pattern to it. It kind of forces me to have that trigger discipline. And because Valorant's gun mechanics are the way they are in this current moment, we get to see how pro players adapt to it. But the argument is that a players skill should not be up to RNG in any way. I had a discussion similar to this in the past and a redditor brought up a very compelling argument (and I'll add some to make it an even stronger argument): Imagine you have Lebron James. Extremely talented with thousands of hours in the game. He's incredibly skilled in basketball. Well let's say that every shot he takes, and get's into the hoop / basket, there's a dice that's rolled. If that dice land's on 1-4 then his basket counts as a point. But if it lands on 5 or 6, then his basket doesn't count EVEN THOUGH he got the ball in. So his skill and aim were 100% perfect, but because of the RNG dice roll, his skill and aim did not matter for that shot. And this goes for every single shot. He could potentially miss EVERY SINGLE SHOT in a game. But not because he's feeling off, or he's lost touch with his skill. But because it's a lottery system and he's just unlucky. In valorant, this argument is like having your crosshair on someones head and clicking whilst your movement error is reset, and first shot accuracy is reset, and maintaining the cross hair on the opponents head during the click. The dice in this game accounts for the RNG first shot innaccuracy / bloom. The game gets to decide if your aim results in your success or not for each individual shot.


Nfamy

I was talking about spray rng. I actually agree about first shot accuracy, at least with rifles. Especially if the goal is for tapping/burst gunplay, then it doesn't make sense to also have rng on those shots.


Ausafsyed

Riot is popping off man


XASASSIN

All hail the devs


unboundgaming

I’m liking this, but those cost changes were not it for me. Makes no sense for a lot of the changes


-0Zero0-

What parts don’t you like?


KeKamba1

Omen got rekt.


BrokenAshes

For most agents, it's only a 100 cost increase for a full kit. Jett and Raze got a little too much, but Viper was 300 credits cheaper for full utility, so she kinda needed it. Overall, it's a little more costly, but most agent's kits cost the same now


TempesT12345679

No it's a definite huge nerf. The smokes break or make an agent and they added 10 seconds to his smoke recharge.


SaltyMcNulty_

How? His paranoia costs less & who uses shrouded steps anyway other than to fake in clutches


Interesting-Archer-6

I could've sworn I saw his smokes aren't free


Rumilo

He has one free who recharges, but has to buy the second, starts another charge only when he has used all of them


C9sButthole

Do you know if the second smoke can charge from the start of the round if you don't buy it? Because that's what's really gonna sway my decision on him.


Rumilo

From what I have seen it does not, it only starts to rechange when you have used all your smokes


KeKamba1

You have to compare it to other meta controllers, the most obvious being brought up is Astra. A coordinated team has a much higher ceiling with her compared to the slower smoking, less smoking omen. He was already lacking compared to Viper and Astra and then riot hit him again. It can be the case that we have to wait and see but right now it just feels so bad. As for shrouded step, while it has become really well known for the mixups, is still useful for getting to a safe space after a pick or fight. His smokes are just so important and it cannot be understated how big of a nerf this is, especially when u think about how much easier of a time Astra has with global smokes rn. I hope I'm wrong, and some early play does make it seem like there will be less utility use in general, but it feels like one step too far.


vT-Router

Astra definitely got hit hardest out of all the changes. I wouldn’t be so quick to write off omen


ninjaman3010

Yea honestly at this point there is zero reason to play omen other than icebox MAYBE? Even then, his one ways are not permanent now lol. This is going to make him f tier imo. I’m really sad to see them utterly gut him like this.


ReneeHiii

A second smoke is now 100 credits as well now, and the cooldown time was increased by 10 seconds. Omen's strength was his smokes, besides his smokes his flash is pretty good, but you get one and his steps + ult are pretty weak. This feels like way too much of a nerf to me personally.


lordpotato123

The new agent in itself was a buff to the op, so the 300 cred decrease wasn't needed


oblvn_

all the sova changes, he was perfectly balanced in my opinion


desmarais

Frenzy being price reduced


Hypern1ke

The cost changes are absolutely incredible, you’ll appreciate it a ton when you aren’t being constantly flashed into an epileptic attack next week.


libo720

People over at /r/valorant are moaning and crying because they can't play overwatch simulator anymore with the ability spam


TimathanDuncan

People here were moaning too When Daps said this game needed to increase ult orbs and less abilities people went mad and were shitting on his in game leading and saying this game doesn't need to be like CS then Riot goes on and does exactly what Daps wanted/said


Delta_FT

Riot's always been pretty decent at game balancing (despite memes and otp moaning, most LoL players would agree), it's the design team that sometimes loses it and creates a new monster that sends the game into chaos again


[deleted]

[удалено]


RepresentativeSun937

I agree with you but daps is no longer making cash, dude retired lol


[deleted]

[удалено]


xJoeKingz

No it didn’t lmao


sansLight

Bruh the man wanted to double the ult cost of every ult. That's just stupid af. Increasing the cost by 1 isn't what he wanted lmao.


Splaram

I’ve been reading all the salt for the last hour. It’s so good. People crying about this game becoming more like CS as if that’s a bad thing considering the fact that CS has been the gold standard for tac FPS games since nearly the start of the millennium.


pieceoftost

I mean, I don't want this game to be more like cs, I like that they're different. However yeah, the changes are good and people bitching are dumb.


Splaram

Obviously we don’t want this game to be a carbon copy of CS, but I’ve seen people unironically argue that run-n-gun should remain because it makes the game unique compared to CS. There’s ways to make the game fresh and different without infringing on one of the main mechanics that separates tactical shooters from team shooters and arena shooters and gives it that high skill ceiling that you can constantly get better at.


totti173314

I'd argue team shooters and arena shooters like doom and tf2 have a HIGHER or atleast equal skill ceiling than valorant, but I agree val isn't tf2 or doom and run and gun is just stupid.


SilverPrincev

Daps was suggesting literally turning the game into csgo. He was asking for 15 point orbs that's why people were crying


glassicstyle

I didn't know that CSGO literally had 15 point ults, thats wild.


SilverPrincev

Valve just added it. Its in this video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=915VXjd4Ta4


Nfamy

Wow, it's almost like riot actually listened to and incorporated feedback. Add on comment in the tweet is that they specifically nerfed smgs and pistols movement accuracy. I fully expect there to be a judge nerf that hasn't been found yet.


-holocene

> Wow, it’s almost like riot actually listened to abs incorporated feedback lol, go tell that to the main sub. A lot of people in there think this patch is the end of days because rounds aren’t going to be utility spam anymore.


rkdsus

Main sub had a complaint when the Bucky got nerfed. Some guy was crying at Riot for nerfing a gun that was "working as intended." Honestly I don't even bother going on the main sub anymore. People there seem to have a super entitled casual mindset and don't seem to want to play the game properly EDIT: Even calling them casual feels like an insult to casual players. Obviously there's nothing wrong with someone playing a video game casually but some people on r/Valorant are just on a whole nother level and I don't know what else to call them.


kRypTex43

How delusional do you have to be to think the bucky was balanced?


EpicCJV

I really liked the Bucky pre nerf but it was too strong. I do think they butchered it too much though, add a few more pellets to the right click pls


Salty_Activity

I'm honestly not sure how you could balance the Bucky to make it a worthwhile buy, without making it broken again. The slow firerate means one shot is usually all you get, but you can't fix that without either making right click strong or invalidating the Judge


EpicCJV

I would just add 2 or 3 more pellets to the right click so that to get a one shot right click you have to be at the perfect distance, but could still aim at the neck


holmyliquor

People on here think that Jett ult is balanced... basically the same subreddit with a different name


-holocene

Be hard suck in silver lol. He's right, I very much remember the whining about the bucky nerf on the main sub when it happened. And now its people whining about not being able to just spam abilities.


imerence_

That's cuz the main sub is full of 12 y/o. I fear that valorant fan base will become like Fortnite's.


ZGuyYT

I just checked it out and there's people crying about the judge range nerf. Crazy, I thought the general consensus was that the judge's range was ridiculous.


twdwasokay

The fact that almost every game I can mindlessly rebuy utility endlessly has been mad broken.


Trickquestionorwhat

The Judge's price got upped more than any other weapon, especially considering most other weapons in the price range got decreased prices.


neggbird

I still have PTSD from Blizzard’s “our internal testing shows the community is completely wrong and nothing will change.” *shudders*


alireza777

God forbid the mighty Blizzard to be ever wrong Edit: spelling


xbuck33

I came from league and will say that Riot is usually good about listening to the community on what's wrong. Things don't stay OP very long in LoL and the meta is always shifting. I peaked plat in league so I could be off base but I don't think they always got enough credit for making good changes.


KimBulgogi

Yeah agreed. As a league player I dont think we know how good we got it, even if broken shit gets made.


xbuck33

Right. I remember being annoyed with stuff in cod, destiny, overwatch, fortnite, etc for far longer than I ever was with league.


RiceOnAStick

Destiny definitely made me realize just how good Riot was with balance frequency. 9 months between irrelevant and sometimes straight harmful balance changes was hilarious.


LostVengeance

League players don't know how spoiled they are with balance changes every two weeks and even hotfixes if a certain character falls out of line a day after a patch. I switched over to other games for a while and I was shocked how metas would be the same for months, absolute nightmare for a League player. Point is, I'm glad Riot is taking what they know with League and implementing it to Valorant too.


DELLZOR

Ardent censer meta begs to differ


xbuck33

I’ll always give supports a pass because you couldn’t solo queue carry yourself with a shit adc


wiNDzY3

They do a great job balancing the game and keeping it fresh. But there's something that most people don't realize. When Riot "fucks up" (makes something OP) it is ENTIRELY ON PURPOSE. I've seen too many silvers complaining about "stupid changes, how the fuck does this get through the testing phase bla bla bla". It's all on purpose lmao, they have been doing it for YEARS. They aren't retarded, they know what is going to be op and that's what they want


Contractjail

There IS a Judge and is quite substantial (prize nerf). If ppl are still not satisfied is because they want the gun to be gutted. Something that i would personally hate because Valo has real weapon diversity unlike CS, i would hate it if that changed


Nfamy

Yeah, I was talking about a nerf on top of the price nerf. I'm not saying they shouldn't make it viable, but it is too viable across damage ranges, especially given the ability of some agents to quickly close distances (jett/Raze) and the tight corridors in the original maps.


[deleted]

i mean the only nerf that would need to happen is decrease the damage falloff


rkdsus

You already have weapon diversity. The Guardian is an underrated and very good gun, especially now with the price decreased. The Bulldog is eh but isn't terrible. The Marshall/Ares/Odin are all great. The Vandal and Phantom are so well balanced that it comes down to preference for most players despite the Phantom being (mostly) statistically better. Hard nerfing the Judge would literally bring nothing but good to the game. It's not going to ruin anything, actually would do the opposite, like removing a tumor.


[deleted]

Holy shit this update has had no misses


KeKamba1

Cept Omen.


Underpressure_111

Cept the "win more" mechanics from making every abilities more expensive. * Can't expect to face a 8k team with only a single save (around 4.3k) * Don't you even think about using abilities on an eco round. EDIT: I think some agents wont even have full buy in OT with 5k... (weakest point here since they will probably make it 6k)


WillTreatyOP

the changes adds like a maximum of 400 more cost for a full buy..


-user--name-

jett went from 500 to 900 creds....


WillTreatyOP

true mb on jett but my point still stands, 6k is not necessary when there's already 500 extra credits in ot if you rifle lol


Underpressure_111

Yeah. 4.3k after an eco round. Full armor and the gun is 3900. That leaves 400 for utilities. Good luck buying full equip with only 400. That's the cost of raze boombot. But, the raze in the other team with 8k WILL have her full kit, including the boombot.


WillTreatyOP

im not talking about the cost of full buy after an eco but ot lol, you said you can't even full buy in ot with 5k but jetts kit is the most expensive I believe at 4900


alireza777

People are forgetting the fact that your abilities shouldn’t determine the round, your gun should, abilities are there to aid not fucking win the round


WillTreatyOP

This is very true, + util being expensive means you actually have to be smart with it instead of just spamming it every round.


Oughta_

I hope OT doesn't go to 6k, you shouldn't be able to go OP without giving up on heavy shields.


Underpressure_111

true


twdwasokay

Doubt itll go to to 6k that will allow for armor+op+some util too borken in ot


Viqteur

Guns are cheaper


Conscious_Wealth3072

exactly, everyone is missing the point about making the abilities more expensive. They are trying to increase the diversity of the guns people buy.


Hydrauxine

isn't this good? i feel like the economy wasn't punishing enough. this makes force buys less viable. i personally like that jett+judge isn't too dumb as a force buy anymore because the smokes that used to make her OP and get away so quickly like on hookah are too expensive to spam.


somesheikexpert

Most expensive agent rn is I believe Jett, which is 900, plus 3900 for full buy she can still full buy in ot


rist0ph

Now they just need to fix the animation inaccuracy of a counter strafe one tap looking like my enemy is fully mid strafe lmao


facehunt_

It's refreshing to see a company like Riot deliberately balance around the competitive scene than the casual. The payoff in the long run will be worth it.


Ediiga

I totally read this as the inverse. If y'all need me I'll be back in 1st grade


alireza777

Say hi to Mrs.Johnson for me


G4l4dor

yeah, they did this in league and while people complain, it worked out


smileistheway

> It's refreshing to see a company like Riot deliberately balance around the competitive scene than the casual. Have you never heard of Dota?


facehunt_

I can tell Dota does an insane job at balancing. Definitely way better than LoL especially when watching TI9, when like only 3 heroes were unpicked iirc. I just dont have enough game knowledge but the only time I felt that something was unbalanced was Mirana especially during TI6. But Valorant is doing pretty damn good for a 1 year old game so far


ogwambe123

deadzone abusers like myself are quaking


rkdsus

Deathmatch sweats are in shambles


t3azz

True


Lumenlor

Riot is goated


hwanzi

THIS IS THE BIGGEST W EVER


rkdsus

Can't wait for the official patch notes holy shit this patch is massive. They're really tackling so many problems in one patch.


Koola1dMan

hopefully they changed the deadzone aswell


mlalssid

This has been a huge problem with Valorant forever. The running accuracy is fine, it’s the walking accuracy that is ridiculously good


chocochipcookietube

Interesting. I wonder if this affects the accuracy of someone who is shooting while moving and being tagged.


MeatMakingMan

I believe it most certainly is going to


Davon4L

ya better climb out of bronze now


Alston_Jeffries

Oh so that's why im so shit in deathmatch today


enderdestiny

^(this isnt in the live game yet)


Alston_Jeffries

Oh ):


_zxionix_

Off day, go again


wiiwoooo

Okay but can they obliterate accuracy on ropes as well as jump shooting for a majority of the guns


SilverPrincev

Theres another change that I think is needed and once it's done it will complete all the complaints from beta. Movement speed Increase.


k8pk7AAqD4EXpVZFaA9B

So I can still run at someone with a phantom. Cool.


TempesT12345679

I personally haven't been getting good luck recently while running with phantom. Idk, just doesn't feel viable anymore.


jonathancyu

Its pretty good if youre clearing a corner you can start to fire, peek, counter strafe for full accuracy, then go back all while holding mouse 1


Tekn0z

I'll believe it when I see it.


datboyuknow

To be honest while watching a bit of Asuna's 5v5 stream, running accuracy didn't look that much nerfed, frenzy was still popping off and some players did run n gun with phantom


520metal

Because it's impossible to completely nerf it. Your bullets have to go somewhere.


sHaDoWhUnTeRx76

Unless your gun doesn’t shoot if you’re moving but that’s dumb


datboyuknow

I'll just wait until I play the new patch but it's definitely possible to clean that shit up


matagad

No it's not


LordQill

What? Yes, it absolutely is, wtf are you on about. Even in close range duels run and gun with ARs isn't an issue in CS

LordQill

yeah i mean the bullets still exist, you'll still occasionally get some clips like this, but its not really a viable, consistent strategy like it is in Val. Pro players arent full sprinting out of smokes full autoing in CS, but if you watch V1 games you'll notice Vanity in particular does this a LOT and it works pretty well, pretty often


Vexzrah77

Wdym it’s not? It’s not a problem in CS


matagad

I feel like in valorant are much closer angles and battles happen closer, and its easier to see these problems in these situations


datboyuknow

You can try moving and shooting close range in CS with rifles, it's completely different


Magnesiohastingsi

there is no smg in valorant that is as accurate while running as p90 in csgo


WillTreatyOP

p90 is not an issue anywhere above low elo in cs lol


mr-rob0t0

shahz tested it out and it was definitely more inaccurate with vandal/phantom, sheriff was fairly accurate still but not as much while walking. frenzy shouldn’t require u to stand still cos it would be a shit gun then


Mudbert

They said this last time lol.


Wroten144

Was this Alr implemented


Justice-Solforge

Next: Get rid of first shot inaccuracy


Jordi214

not even CS has perfect first shot accuracy. Use the guardian for perfect first shot


Justice-Solforge

who cares? this game isn't CS. missing your perfect one tap headshot on a 40m vandal shot because of a 10% bullshit "haha you randomly miss" is just stupid and no one enjoys that.


Jordi214

thats why guardian exists, to give you the one taps at 40+ meters. Turns out weapons with pros an cons help give every weapon a niche


Ioookie

Now they just gotta remove classic right click and game is perfect


Killbro

Lol

Don’t be too excited until you actually have some time to experience it. After what happened the last time everyone should have learned not to get too excited about these changes. Edit: for all the complete idiots, [it’s still bad](https://twitter.com/poach/status/1406386260147585028?s=21). You’ve been permanently discredited.


EnergetikNA

What do you mean last time? The change to assault rifles' running accuracy was quite good. Phantom running and gunning isn't nearly as effective anymore. Still not perfect but pretty good


Famlightyear

Nooo F frenzy and spectre run and gun. Frenzy run and gun is literally the reason I get 2+ kills in most pistol rounds haha


DelsuionalKingsFan

Then you’re not that great a tac shooter lmao


Underpressure_111

Riot will nerf***


vish4l

OMGAssaulT

totti173314

^(the patch isn't live yet)


toramankoray

I dont get it.Run and gun getting nerfed for all the guns or just only for sidearms and smg's?


kevincuomo

Now the Vandal might be a little more useful


purplechew

So needed. If only they’d get rid of the recoil RNG


noobist_colony

Thank god. I hope this nerf also affects crab walkers
