Riot Games has just released a new patch for Valorant, and it includes a number of nerfs to some of the most popular Duelist agents. These nerfs have been met with mixed reactions from the community, with some players expressing disappointment and others believing that they are necessary to balance the game.
One of the most heavily nerfed agents is Jett, who has been a top pick in competitive play for months. Her Tailwind ability now has a shorter window of activation, and her Cloudburst ability has been reduced in duration. Additionally, her Updraft ability now only has one charge, and her Blade Storm ultimate now requires more Ultimate points to use.
Jett’s Influence and the Call for Fairness
In Valorant’s characters, Jett stands out. People love her fast moves and cool abilities. She’s known as a strong duelist. But as the game changes, some players worry she’s become too strong compared to other duelists.
Riot Games listens to players and knows this. Their recent tweet from the official Valorant Twitter account talks about nerfs for Jett in the next Patch 7.04. These changes aim to make things more balanced and fair, showing Riot’s commitment to a healthy and competitive game.

Understanding the Changes
The nerfs for Jett in Patch 7.04 will change how she works in the game. Here’s what’s happening:
1. Tailwind (E): Jett’s quick dash will be slower, going from 12 seconds to 7.5 seconds. And it’ll take a bit longer to start, from 0.75 seconds to 1 second.
2. Cloudburst (C): The Cloudburst ability won’t last as long, going from 4.5 seconds to 2.5 seconds. And there’ll be a small wait after using it before you can use your weapon again.
3. Updraft (Q): Jett can jump less, going from 2 times to just 1 time.
4. Blade Storm (X): It’ll be harder to get Jett’s special attack. You’ll need more points, going from 7 to 8
Player Reactions and Guesses
Players have mixed feelings about these changes. Some are excited, some are worried, and some are curious. People think Jett might not be as popular for a while until players get used to the changes. The changes are big, so players will need new ideas to use Jett’s abilities well in the game.
Riot Games really wants Valorant to be better. Patch 7.04 has a lot of changes for many characters, not just Jett. Breach, Brimstone, Killjoy, and others are also getting changes. Riot says these changes might not be huge, but they’ll make the game better and need players to think more.
June Cuervo, who designs characters in Valorant, says they want players to show their skills more: “Even though some changes are small, we hope they make the game clearer and give you more chances to shine.”
As Valorant’s Patch 7.04 gets ready, people are talking a lot about Jett’s changes. The changes are big, but they show that Riot Games wants the game to be fair and fun. Even though things might be hard at first, players will find new ways to play and show their skills. The game is changing, and that’s what makes it exciting!
