VALORANT 5.09 Patch Notes: Bug Fixes

VALORANT Patch Notes 5.09 is finally out, and it turns out that this one is a light one with mostly bug fixes.

The main attraction of the VALORANT patch 5.09 is the bug fixes and improvements to some of the quality-of-life aspects of the game. It was expected since it is extremely rare for Riot Games to drop two massive updates back to back.

Since the last 5.08 patch introduced Episode 5 ACT 3 alongside a new controller agent, for the latest patch, 5.09, instead of making more meta-shifting changes, Riot opted for refinement and bug fixes. Most of these bug fixes were catered to Harbor, the new agent from India.

VALORANT 5.09 Patch Notes



  • Fixed a bug where Harbor’s Cascade would sometimes disappear when looking away from it (hotfixed during 5.08 patch cycle).
  • Fixed a bug where walking through Harbor’s Cove barrier was not blinding players at the intended distance (hotfixed during 5.08 patch cycle).
  • Fixed a bug where Harbor’s High Tide would have large gaps when cast in specific map locations.
  • Fixed a bug where Harbor’s Reckoning’s geysers would not spawn on the area where the player was standing.
  • Throughout this year, we’ve 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.
  • 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 self into a corner.
