A game-breaking bug in Valorant causes dead bodies to disappear. Without any available target, Sage players cannot resurrect their teammates, a potentially game-changing event. But there is a temporary fix to the corpse bug.

Sage’s ultimate ability, Resurrection, allows her to revive teammates back to full health. The bug makes corpses invisible thereby removing an important part of the team’s composition. Sage has seen an increasing presence in professional matches due to her ability to bring back dead allies to life. The ability virtually adds an extra person to your team as the enemy has to eliminate your ally twice.

Sage players: Where’s my teammate?

TriggerHappy0071 posted a Reddit thread with a video of the corpse bug. In the video, Sage sees his teammate die in front of her on Icebox. Like any good Sage player, she sets up a barrier to prepare for a resurrection on Reyna. But after setting up the barrier, he just couldn’t find the dead body that had already vanished on her. Without an allied target to lock on to, there was no way possible for her to resurrect his teammate.

Velly: "People are going to be against what I say sometimes, or might even root for me. But at the end of the day, people will respect me for still speaking my mind."

Esports desk host and analyst Loviel “Velly” Cardwell opened up about his struggles to break through, his career defining moment and his future in the VALORANT and esports space.

    Sage’s ultimate is a crucial part of any team composition and is the biggest reason for teams to pick her up. But when this corpse bug makes it impossible for Sage players to use their ultimate, it drastically reduces the chance to win the round.
