Riot dials down Lotus doors volume in Valorant patch 6.01 update

Valorant's Lotus map has been causing a bit of a ruckus, but now Riot Games has dialled down the doors in the Valorant patch 6.01 notes

Valorant patch 6.01 update Lotus doors: Killjoy

The Valorant patch 6.01 update notes have finally dropped. And while developer Riot Games isn’t changing much so soon after the start of the new Episode, there are a couple of notable tweaks coming to the competitive FPS game, including a much needed nerf to the volume of Lotus’ rotating doors.

The latest addition to the Valorant maps, Lotus has received a generally warm welcome from the community. However, there has been one glaring complaint leveraged against it – the rotating doors located between A Tree and A Rubble, and B Main and C Main are just a teensy bit too chuffing loud.

Fortunately, Riot has heard your pleas, and will be dialling down the foghorn-esque doors in the new patch. The timing couldn’t be more perfect for it, considering that Lotus will now be enabled in Unrated and Competitive queues.

Alongside the volume change, a number of pesky Lotus bugs have been fixed, including a boost exploit at the back of B Site, the Spike getting lost in the back of A Site, and players getting stuck in the rotating doors – though Riot does note that it’s only “pretty sure” on the latter, and are calling on players to let it know if they get trapped going forward.
