Skye Mains asked Riot to fix an audio cue bug with its Guiding Light flash that misled players. The developers have confirmed that the annoying bug has been fixed in Valorant patch 5.06 despite the lack of the patch notes.
Skye’s flash, Guiding Light, is a key part of the Valorant Initiator’s Kit. The Aussie can toss a hawk, bend it around corners, and flash enemies.
It is also great for intel gathering as it emits a beep when it blinds an enemy. However, this beeper had been bugged for a few weeks, making it unreliable and distracting at times. What would happen is that the pop noise would happen twice without the hawk screaming.
While there are other ways to determine if enemies are flashed without a large angle of rotation, it could still trip up even the most seasoned Skye player.
Mains patiently waited for a fix, but Valorant patch 5.06 circulated without a word about it. Players were getting restless watching another two weeks without a fix for their favorite Agent, but Riot confirmed that Skye’s audio bug was in fact fixed and not in the patch notes.
Skye’s Guiding Light has been fixed as of Valorant patch 5.06 despite not being mentioned in the notes.
“This bug should actually be fixed in [Valorant patch] 5.06, but just didn’t make it to the patch notes,” developer ‘TheAeroplane13’ told gamers on Reddit. “Sorry for the confusion, and let us know if you notice the issue is not resolved.”
For now, Skye’s flash should warn players as intended when an enemy is blinded, and you can once again have full confidence in your usefulness.
