Riots Reverted Sova Animations In Valorant

After the community expressed concern about the effects of the Sova lineup, Riot Games have taken the smart decision of retracting all the announced changes. The Riot has to give affirmation to the fans on Twitter to retract the animation changes. However, a few changes that are not animation will take place in the upcoming game. With Patch 4.08, Roits will remove all the animation changes.


However, Sova is now only receiving nerfs to his Shock Dart and Drone, but not the new animations that will change Sofa’s lineup. If you have played the game you must know that Sova was one of the first players to get VALORANT. Players have used his ability to bounce his usefulness off services to take the game to new heights, since then.

Players have devised methods to shoot his Recon Bolt to land in unexpectedly clear areas of the battlefield, and they have altered it such that his Shock Dart may be shot or rebounded to damage opponents or enemy utilities in unexpected locations. Riot recognized the enormous hours that had been invested in Sova lineups and felt that deleting it for a few extra animations was not worth it.
