5.03 Patch Notes


Chamber has been an issue since he entered the game. His skills are so powerful that he completely controls practically every game. Chamber’s whole toolkit is nerfed due to several factors. Against the French armaments merchant, players will now have a reasonable chance.

~ Trademark Slow & Ultimate slow Duration Decreased from 9.5s to 6s

~ Ultimate Point Increase from 7 to 8

~ Bullet Cost increased 100 >>> 150

Riot Games has decided to tweak him so that playing against him feels more balanced and fair. Here are all the nerfs coming to Chamber’s kit in the next patch:

Rendezvous (E)

  • Base Cooldown increased 20s >>> 30s
  • Recall Cooldown increased 20s >>> 30s
  • Cooldown set to 45s whenever a Rendezvous anchor is destroyed
  • Radius Size decreased 21m >>> 15m

Trademark (C)

  • Slow Duration decreased 9.5 >>> 6s

Tour De Force (X)

  • Ultimate Points Required increased 7 >>> 8
  • Slow Duration decreased 9.5 >>> 6s
  • Tour De Force leg shot multiplier reduced 1.0 >>> 0.85

Headhunter (Q)

  • Bullet Cost increased 100 >>> 150


Players will need more effort if they want to experience the satisfying sense of using her powers to secure kills. The headshot multiplier in Neon’s Ultimate ability will receive a modest improvement, thereby making a headshot kill possible.

  • Damage per shot reduced 22 >>> 18
  • Leg shot multiplier reduced 1.0 >>> 0.85
  • Killzone increased 15m >>> 20m
  • Headshot multiplier increased 1 >>> 3


Although Jett’s nerf is minor, it is still worth mentioning as it will be rolled out with the patch itself. The knife’s overall damage is still intact, but if players choose to hit an opponent in the leg, the multiplier has decreased. Jett is receiving a regional damage multiplier nerf:

  • Bladestorm (X) leg shot multiplier reduced 1.0 >>> 0.85
