Riot Disables Yoru After VALORANT Players Find Exploit On Breeze Map
Playing as Yoru is a little bit of a breeze at the moment, as some players have found slimy methods of making him invincible.
The electric blue agent has now been disabled, and although the developers have not shed any light as to why, the VALORANT community believe it to be because of a game-breaking glitch on the new ma, Breeze.
In their recent games, players may have noticed that Yoru is now not available for selection, throwing some team compositions out of the window. Similarly, the new map that has been branded as "the best map ever made" has also been disabled.
Why has Yoru Been disabled?
No details have been shared by the developers, but recent clips of a game-breaking glitch have recently surfaced, which appears to be their motive. Whilst operating on Breeze, Yoru can use his Gatecrash ability to teleport inside the pyramids, leaving him invisible to enemies.
Similar glitches usually result in the players getting stuck or instantly dying, however, this exploit actually allows Yoru to shoot out of the pyramids, and even plant the spike, all whilst being invincible.
As for Breeze, the map looks to have been removed for safekeeping, with other agents also sharing a teleportation ability that could end up in a similar position.
When will VALORANT fix Yoru?
Riot's speedy action to remove Yoru and Breeze indicates their need to fix this issue as soon as possible. Their rapid response time may be increased by the looming VALORANT Champions Tour: Stage 2 Masters in Reykjavik, which kicks off in less than a week.
As their first-ever international live event in VALORANT, Riot will surely be looking to fix this instantly, allowing teams who may use Yoru to get ample practice before their biggest event yet.
Yoru will be expected to be added back into the rotation before the event kicks off on May 24.
