It seems that Valorant's latest Agent has a sound glitch that currently prevents him to be even trickier, particularly on Bind, the map with teleporters.
Yoru's Fakeout will be even better on Bind, Valorant dev reveals

Valorant Episode 2 Act 1 is finally here, and players are enjoying all the new content that has come with it.

Of course, one of the most exciting new things is a brand new duelist Agent - Yoru.

Yoru is a master of deception and surprises, and his toolkit will allow skilful players to make some insane plays, with so many possibilities for trickery and disguise.

One of his basic abilities, Fakeout, allows him to release fake phantom footsteps and send them in the direction of your choice, and by doing that, to deceive enemies into thinking that someone is walking there.

As we all know, the sound component of competitive FPS games is absolutely crucial and having this kind of tool at your disposal is really useful when you want to play mind games with your opponents.

But, as it turns out, this already useful ability will become even better with one of the upcoming patches.

This has been revealed by Valorant's game designer, Rycou, whose job is to work on designing Agents.

Apparently, the ability is currently glitched in a way that it doesn't work properly when it goes through the teleporter.

One of the Valorant's maps,  Bind, has teleporters which produce specific sound when somebody goes through them, as a way to alarm the enemies that someone is moving through them.

As explained by Rycou, the ability should use the same audio as when a player goes through the teleporter, but that doesn't seem to be the case right now.

He assures players that the fix is already in the process of testing and it should be deployed with a new patch "as long as it doesn't break the build."

It goes without saying that the ability will be even more deceiving when this gets fixed and it will create even more confusion amongst Yoru's enemies.
