Some of the professional VALORANT players showed their concern over the fact that these skins were a little bit too distracting.

Right now a weird glitch in VALORANT is affecting the ElderFlame skin bundle. Some of the guns in the bundle are showcasing weird behavior. Apparently, the ElderFlame Vandal skin is emitting weird “screeching” noise.

Basically, it looks like some sort of weird bug or glitch is making the dragon roar sound effect to loop over and over again. Consequently, it is creating distractions while in the game. Some players in the community think that this is directly affecting the competitive integrity of the game.
