Riot has just nerfed almost all the agents in Valorant, taking the skill ceiling to the next level in patch 7.04. 

Valorant patch 7.04 is packed with nerfs and adjustments to 11 agents, which is over half the roster. While Riot claims these adjustments are subtle, Breach and Jett mains would disagree. Starting patch 7.04, ultimates would cost a fortune, and abilities must be used with elaborate planning. 

“Though many of these changes are subtle, We hope all together they improve game state clarity and the sense that you have even more opportunities for your skill to shine through,” Valorant agent designer June Cuervo said.
