Raze is nerfed

Riot was thinking about the modification of Raze eventually, and in Valorant Patch 1.04 they finally want to do this. They said that in Raze there is a ‘little bit of unhealthy’ area, but Riot can easily make this in control. To fix the ‘legitimate’ she just needs some number adjustment with the satchel and the ultimate ability.
