Brimstone to Receive Buffs in Valorant Episode 2, Leaks Suggest

Dataminers have revealed that the beret-wearing agent will receive several buffs in the next Valorant episode.

Brimstone has undoubtedly been one of the most underwhelming agents in Valorant as of late. Not only are his win-rates quite low compared to other Valorant controllers, but his pick rate in the professional scene has also taken a drastic hit over the last few months.

For instance, stats reveal that Brimstone had a zero percent pick rate in the Valorant First Strike North American Finals, while he made only four appearances in the European Finals. For comparison, fellow controller Omen had a whopping 100% pick rate in the North American Finals.

However, some recent leaks are suggesting that Brimstone is about to be buffed quite significantly in the upcoming Valorant Episode 2 update. 

According to a tweet by Valorant Leaks, three of Brimstone’s abilities will receive buffs in the next major update. 

  • Sky Smoke: Smoke cast range increased from 4200>5000 units. Smoke duration increased from 14.25 seconds to 19.25 seconds. 
  • Incendiary: Price reduced from $300 to $200.
  • Stim Beacon: Equip time removed, will quickcast from now. 

These much needed changes are certain to increase the agent’s winrate by a margin. The buffs may also be enough to boost Brimstone’s pick rates significantly in the competitive scene and make him a much more viable controller overall.
