Chamber is currently facing a tough time in Valorant, prompting Riot to provide a much-needed boost in Patch 8.03.

Agent Balancing Efforts

Despite Riot’s efforts to assist Chamber, the French Sentinel continues to struggle within the game. This Wednesday, the developer released the patch notes for Valorant’s 8.03 update, highlighting some anticipated buffs for Chamber. Here at CodigoEsports, we bring you all the details of these changes and other upcoming novelties.

However, some agents prove to be a headache for the developer, as the slightest change can either render them ineffective or make them overwhelmingly dominant.
