There is a circulating Valorant wallhack bug today. Riot Games is already investigating the circumstances following patch 1.04.
Riot is dedicating its time to creating a fair environment for Valorant players. Whenever a bug is reported, the developers are quick to ratify the problem. The current Valorant wallhack bug appeared recently and it seems like a fix is on the way.
The latest bug reveals opponents whenever using the A-Site door controls on the map Ascent.
Bugs are inevitable every game. However, the worst type of bugs is those that put players at a huge disadvantage. Such is the case of this current bug.
July 21 patch brings the problem
The latest patch of the game allowed players to use the Valorant wallhack bug.
It was first posted on the Valorant official subreddit. There is no cheat needed. It is easily achieved by activating the door controls.
It does not show a huge outline as the game shows for teammates. However, peaking through the door controls instantly reveals the enemies.
It is a crucial bug considering that positioning in Valorant is important.
According to the poster u/russmankiwi, the bug allowed his team to read the opponent’s play.
“Pretty map breaking bug, have not tested whether this is the same over at B (site),” the poster said.
Riot off to find a fix
The post on the Valorant subreddit easily caught the attention of Riot Games developers. The problem was acknowledged and a fix is coming out soon.
According to the user u/agersant, “wow, that’s a nasty bug! Thanks for reporting it, and thanks for providing a video example too!”
“I just messaged the relevant team about this,” added the developer.
