Valorant Patch 8.09 Increases Brimstone Smoke Radius, Fixes Several Bugs

The patch notes for the upcoming Valorant 8.09 update are here, and it brings with it a slight buff to Brimstone smokes alongside a few other improvements.

The 8.09 Valorant patch may not be packed with new features, but it diligently addresses several pesky bugs that have been plaguing the community for some time. For instance, the annoying bug which automatically deleted players’ crosshair profiles has now been fixed.

Other than the bug fixes, the only notable change is the increase in the Brimstone smoke radius. The radius has been increased by five units to ensure that it fully covers the area indicated by the UI when a player is placing it.

Valorant 8.09 Update: Patch Notes

Here are the detailed patch notes of Valorant 8.09, as confirmed by Riot Games:


Valorant Patch 8.09 Increases Brimstone Smoke Radius


  • We’ve done some small updates to Brimstone’s Sky Smoke (E) to ensure that it fully covers the area indicated by the UI when you are placing it. This should ensure that when the outer edge of the targeting UI covers a choke point that the spawned smoke will fully cover that area as well. This change includes a slight increase to the radius of Brimstone’s smoke that should make it match the smoke size of his peers like Omen.
    • Sky Smoke (E)
      • Radius increased 410 >>> 415
      • UI targeting size updated so that outer edge properly reflects the size of the smoke
