Chamber nerfed in VALORANT Patch 4.09

The sentinel is being changed.

The newest sentinel in VALORANT is set to be nerfed in Patch 4.09, developer Riot Games revealed today. 

Chamber is the target of Riots latest patch. The defensive tool in his kit, Trademark, has been reduced from three charges to two and the cost has been increased from 150 credits to 200. The audio range of the ability has been increased too, making it easier to hear. 

Right now, Chamber’s Trademark outperforms other Sentinel tools in both reliability and power, which feels inappropriate given the amount of defensive combat tools Chamber has spread across the rest of his kit, Riot said regarding the nerf. 

Several professional players and coaches have criticized Riot for the change following his test period on the public beta environment. Head coach of OpTic Gaming Chet Singh said on Twitter that reducing the number of trips from two to one is too harsh.” 

As a counter, OpTic player Jaccob yay Whiteaker said all other sentinel agents, including Killjoy and Cypher, need a buff. Their setups are easy to break with utility on the offensive side, according to yay. 

Cloud9 player Nathan leaf Orf criticized Chambers Rendezvous, which allows him to teleport to a different part of the map almost instantly. There’s Chamber where he can tp every 20 seconds 1/3 of the map, he said. Chambers ultimate ability Tour De Force can also scope in easily, he said

These changes will be implemented in Patch 4.09, which is set to be released today.
