Harbor is the newest agent in Valorant but his arrival was marred by some bugs which have now been addressed in the newest Valorant 5.09 update. The new update does not have any balance changes but there are plenty of fixes to Harbor and other agents that should make their abilities work more consistently across the board. Here is everything you need to know about Valorant patch 5.09.

Harbor Cascade and Cove barrier bugs addressed in new update

Riot Games fixed Harbor’s Cascade which would sometimes disappear when looking away from it. Cove barrier was not blinding players at the intended distance and it has also been fixed in the new update.

In addition to these major fixes which were rolled out as part of a hotfix, the new update also addresses several other issues that Harbor players encountered. The new update has resolved a bug where Harbor’s High Tide would have large gaps when cast in specific map locations and the pesky Reckoning bug where geysers would not spawn on the area where the player was standing has also been addressed.

Skye is the other agent who received some noticeable changes. Throughout the year Riot Games has been periodically making improvements to Skye’s Seekers so that they more reliably and efficiently reach their target. Small changes were made to how Skye’s Seekers navigate around obstacles after they’ve visually acquired their target. If the target is intangible when the Seekers reach them, it will not debuff them. This includes Reyna while she is Dismissed and Yoru in Dimensional Drift.

Other minor bug fixes in the new update include: 

  • Fixed an issue where Yoru would still enter his stealth and intangible state if he was detained while casting Dimensional Drift. The detain now properly interrupts the cast.

  • Fixed an issue where Fade could activate her Haunt and Seize projectiles to make them drop while she was Suppressed.

  • Fixed an issue where Reyna would auto-heal after a kill while in Empress even though she was Suppressed.

  • Fixed an issue where Sage could instantly break her Barrier by walling herself into a corner.

The next Valorant patch is expected sometime around mid-November.
