Valorant Omen Buff – Patch Notes 4.04

The official synopsis for the Valorant Omen Buff reads: 

As strategic diversity in VALORANT evolved, Omen has struggled to find his place within the meta. Many of you enjoy his gameplay loop, but have found it increasingly difficult to justify his selection in higher tiers of play. We want to increase his reliability as a Controller by rolling back a selection of early nerfs to Dark Cover, and sharpen his combat-focused abilities.”

As such, his abilities have changed to make him more pliable during firefights.

Dark Cover

  • Cooldown decreased from 40s to 30s
  • Cost increased from 100 to 150
  • Projectile Speed increased from 2800 to 6400

Shrouded Step

  • Cost decreased 150 to 100
  • Pre teleport delay decreased 1s to 0.7s


  • Added forward spawn offset, so players adjacent to Omen are not hit
