Valorant`s bug: Viper’s Poison Cloud can block flashes2021-07-21 10:44:00
A Valorant player discovered a way to block flashes using Viper’s Poison Cloud. Before it fully activates on the ground, it can disable all flashes thrown. While it may be difficult to pull off, experienced Viper mains can exploit this strategy and avoid being blinded by enemies.
The player tested the interaction out using flashes from Phoenix and KAY/O and Reyna’s Leer. Poison Cloud blocked the blind even before the actual smoke was activated. This provides a small window that Vipers can capitalize on, especially since enemies will likely think their opponent is flashed.
Riot has yet to address this interaction. But if it adversely affects competitive gameplay, the devs will likely patch it out in a future update.
