It's not a big Patch, but it's surely an exciting one. Even though Chamber is the only Agent who gets any significant changes in this update, it's important to remember that he was the most popular Sentinel Agent in the game. Will that change now? Well, time will tell, but for now, let's see what's in Patch 4.09 Notes.

Agent Updates



  • Cost increased to 150 (from 200)
  • Charges reduced to 1 (from 2)
  • Audio range increased



  • You should now see a decreased amount of flickering textures on diagonal walls when casting Fade’s ultimate.
  • Also added VFX for additional clarity and visual impact.


VFX change to the orb for a more dynamic presentation in 1p and Agent select.
