In VALORANT, a Vipers orb can stick to the buy phase barrier on Pearl ...

In a few areas on Pearl, Vipers poison orb can adhere to the purchase phase barrier, permeating players to create one-way smokes that are difficult to counter.

The buy phase barrier prevents either team from entering key areas of the map before the round begins, resulting in a balanced and equal experience. Viper players are only able to prevent the players from entering the other parts of the map, but Viper has now removed the barriers.

SkySincro showed how the Vipers orb can stick to the buy phase barriers on Pearl in some locations. After the barriers disappear, the orb sticks to the surface and stays suspended in the air, allowing players to create one-way smokes. The defenders also provided extra solutions to the attack.

This is expected to be resolved soon, as it impacts the games'' competitive integrity, especially at higher levels. Viper players can easily create unnatural one-way smokes with the exploit, making it tough to enter the area as an attacker. It''s unclear if the glitch is anywhere else on Pearl, but players should be aware of the issue until it is addressed.

Pearl has only been available on the live servers for a couple of days, and issues like this will likely persist throughout the next couple of weeks. However, Riot Games often quickly addresses any major issues, such as this barrier problem.
