Valorant Patch 6.06: Gekko and Lotus Updates, Bug Fixes, and More

Valorant players, get ready for the latest update as Valorant Patch 6.06 is set to go live soon. With this update, players can expect significant changes to Gekko’s kit, as well as adjustments to the new map, Lotus. Additionally, bug fixes will also be on the cards. Here’s a closer look at what to expect from this upcoming update.

Valorant Agent Updates: Gekko Changes

Gekko’s Moss Pit damage to objectives will be made more consistent in the upcoming patch, although its damage will be reduced quite a bit. In comparison to other similar abilities like KAY/O’s FRAG/ment (C) and Breach’s Aftershock (C), Mosh Pit’s damage to objects has been performing inconsistently. As a result, the damage has been reduced from 2.5x to 1x.

Wingman (Q) will also receive a change. In the upcoming update, Wingman will always die if he is the last agent alive.

Map Updates: Lotus Adjustments

Lotus, the new map in Valorant, will also receive a number of adjustments in the upcoming patch. VFX updates will be added to some areas of the map, particularly the destructible door located between A Link to A Main. This update aims to make it easier to see through the door as it falls away.

Gameplay System Updates

In addition to agent and map updates, there will also be a gameplay system update. The upcoming patch will add the ability to hide agent outlines and fresnel (the color outline on agents) in the game. Players can access this feature by going to Settings >> General >> Under “Other,” where there is an option to toggle “Hide Outlines and Fresnel.”

Bug Fixes

As with any update, Valorant Patch 6.06 will include a number of bug fixes to improve gameplay quality. Here are some of the bugs that will be fixed in the upcoming patch:

  • Wingman can no longer concuss intangible players.
  • Fixed a bug preventing players from sending a whisper starting with a Circumflex Accent ^.
  • Muting someone will now properly suppress ping icons.
  • Fixed a bug where the join party button would still be active even though the party invite was no longer valid.
  • Fixed a bug where the voice chat UI was obscured when the player’s agent was blinded.

For a more detailed description of the patch, players can visit Riot’s official website. But, the major highlights of Valorant Patch 6.06 include changes to Gekko, adjustments to the new map Lotus, and bug fixes to improve gameplay experience.
