Update History

v1.0 Patch
  • Cloudburst smoke duration increased 4>>>7 seconds
    • We feel like Jett has a strong, irreplaceable value in terms of her ability to deny trades. But we think her team-oriented output is a little too low. This should give her and her team a little more time to work off of her smokes.
