Riot Games seem to have put up the patch notes for Valorant up to soon and the community snatched the juicy info before they disappeared into thin air.
Valorant is expected to be updated on March 30, 2021, and the patch notes for 2.6 have been leaked a little too soon. One of the highlights of the patch are the changes coming to Viper, who will probably become one of the strongest controllers.
Her Toxin will now immediately decay 50 HP and then gradually bring the agents' health down. Previously, a full-HP agent could easily pass through her obstacles without feeling too much pressure but suddenly dropping half the HP will make aggressive players think twice.
To compensate, agents will start regenerating decayed one second HP sooner than before as the delay is down to 1.5 seconds. On top of that, the decay over time has been reduced by 33 per cent.
Poison Cloud can now be deployed immediately after being picked up but the tradeoff is that this will be a temporary charge so you will need to spend a bit more money on it. Furthermore, pickup distance has been doubled which should let Viper reach it more easily to redeploy.
In case of both Poison Cloud and Toxin Screen, they will remain up for two seconds after Viper dies, in case they were active at the time.
Snakebite will also have a quicker equip time which should come in handy in sticky situations when time is of the essence.
