Valkyrie Jetpack Nerf Coming in May 27 Update. It is a passive ability of her’s. Many players use it to hover in the air for a long time in the final stage of play. For this unfair advantage, Apex Devs have decided to nerf it in the next update.
Apex Legends is one of the most popular online first-person shooter games of this time. It has around 70 million players worldwide. Players can compete in a three-man squad with their friends or random players like most other battle royale games. The main motive is to land and find guns, shields, and other survival stuff to survive till last and kill all other players.
Valkyrie Jetpack Nerf
Valkyrie is the newest Legend introduced in Apex Legends Season 9. It’s a quite powerful Legend though many players couldn’t use it properly and choose not to use it. On the other hand, few players still managed to bring interesting ideas to get the best of their abilities, like flying in the air for a long time.
This provides the player an unfair advantage. It can’t fire hovering in the air, but it makes it harder to hit it and eventually win the battle. It can be very irritating and this happens in competitive matches also.
Associate Live Balance Designer at Respawn Entertainment, John Larson knew the issue and said that this passive ability will be nerfed in the update of 27 May. The update will make the full amount of fuel consumption instead of a portion of the fuel.
Players have mixed reactions to the news as they said that this wasn’t overpowered since it can’t draw her gun. They also suggested that to use slightly more fuel rather than the full amount.
