A new Valorant BlastX skin glitch is letting players see through walls. However, developers are already looking into the matter.
- Valorant has released a new skin pack – the BlastX weapon skin.
- A new glitch with this new Valorant BlastX skin glitch is giving players wallhack.
Valorant is a vibrant game full of skins, cosmetics and multiple agents, All of these
agents have their very own set of abilities and the weapons also have their own
different animations and devastating finisher effects to end a round. However,
the new skin line is messing up the game.
The BlastX skin weapons can change the wind of game at any moment, the
Nerf Gun-inspired designs have been hit with a critical issue. Players using
the weapon skins can have their position revealed through walls.
When swapping weapons with this skin equipped, your Agent unwraps the guns each time. It’s this wrapping effect that has caught the attention of players online and now, developers at Riot Games are on the case.
The issue first caught fire when Brazil’s top player was accused of cheating. In the midst of a regular stream on March 8, ‘Aspas’ spotted an enemy gun through a wall on Ascent. It didn’t help them secure the kill, though viewers instantly noticed something was off.
While many looked to accuse the top-ranked Radian player of using wall-hacks, it turns out, that wasn’t the case at all. The enemy was actually revealed due to a game-breaking bug with the BlastX skin line in Valorant.
“This is a bug with the Christmas skins when you upgrade them,” 100 Thieves star Peter ‘Asuna’ Mazuryk explained on Reddit.
“When you pull out the gun, they show the packaging of the gun through walls. Don’t recommend using that skin until it gets patched.”
At first, developers even shot down this theory, arguing that the BlastX skins couldn’t have caused the issue. Though ‘oniram177‘ soon turned around after being provided with more evidence. “I’m collecting all of these examples for the team so the more we have the better it will be for us to understand,” they said.
In another example from Noah ‘rara’ Giesbrecht of Dignitas, we see a similar instance of the BlastX weapon wrap phasing through a wall. “What was that?” the North American pro questioned in the midst of a game on Haven.
“That there shows up as a clear example of the issue we see with BlastX where the wrapping paper stretches,” oniram177 followed up.
So while the skin line hasn’t been disabled, it’s clear the devs are looking into a fix. For the time being, it’d be wise to avoid BlastX until the issue is resolved.
