Riot Games nerfed Valorant's most prominent couple in a single swoop, on Valentine's.

True love persists through the good times and bad, in sickness and in health, through buffs and nerfs.

It appears that is exactly what the theme is in Valorant on February 14, 2023, as Riot Games decided to nerf both Raze and Killjoy, who have previously been confirmed as a couple, if the image above wasn't obvious enough.

Essentially, Raze will have less scouting potential while Killjoy will be less oppressive overall.

Raze's Boom Bot could provide intel for a long period of time previously as it lasted for 10 seconds. Riot cut the duration in half so placing the mobile exploder on the ground will require more premeditation instead of just dropping it and getting an extended period of intel.

As for Killjoy, Turret will no longer be as potent since its health got reduced from 125 to 100 which means people will have an easier time killing the thing, even with weaker weaponry.

Additionally, her ultimate will require one point more to become active so don't be surprised if you see fewer Lockdowns all around.
