Scream wants Valorant to nerf Odin in the upcoming patch

The professional player was happy to see the incoming changes to the armory of weapons. The new prices will tweak the pivotal weapons like Judges, Guardian, Operator, Bucky, Bulldog, Marshall, Ares, Frenzy, and so on. ScreaM hopes that the studio addresses similar nerf to Odin, as the weapon seems a bit overpowered.

The game is seeing a massive change, as it continues to develop with each update. The pro player believes the changes to Operator and Guardian are positive but suggests they are still expensive.

Odin is an extremely powerful light machine gun, which can be purchased at a steep price of 3200 credits. This weapon boasts insane firepower, which can pierce through any material in the game. This overpowered nature of the gun at the low price of 3200 credits makes it a viable choice.

It helps certain agents like Sova to hit surreal shots through walls in several locations known as spam spots. This has made the weapon overly powerful, as it continues to reign supreme in both professional play and public lobbies. The studio should look into the matter and roll out adequate nerfs to balance it out.

Odin’s current strength has turned it into an unfavorable gun, which can become a great weapon to anchor site. The studio could either turn down its rate of fire or enhance its prices, exactly like the sniper rifle, Operator.
