PatchBot will keep your Discord channel up-to-date on all the latest Valorant changes.
I know, after skipping Patch 2.10 you expected fireworks. Just look at this patch as the quiet before the Episode 3 storm.
Not for nothing, Patch 2.11 should improve your framerate by 1% on average if you’re on a medium–high spec machine.
With VCT Masters Stage 2 on the horizon, it’s important we don’t get too crazy with balance changes and focus on getting VALORANT in a healthy state just in time for Reykjavík.
Still, the Viper instant decay adjustment, Breeze tweaks, and Game System improvements should be welcome updates.
Oh and go play Replication, it’s live, for a limited time!
I will be out of the office starting (Breeze) until (Breeze). For urgent matters, you can contact (Someone Else).
Introducing the newest map, Breeze, to the VALORANT map pool. Breeze is set on a remote island distinguished by its bright, playful, and colorful environment, with wide open spaces and opportunities for long range encounters.
After the last two heavy patches [guess which one was fake], we’re coming at you lighter this time. That being said the Astra and Raze changes should carry some serious weight for the Spike plant/defuse window and predicting incoming attacks, respectively.
Today is the start of our annual hotfix schedule. We decided it’s only fair that we listen to you at least once a year, every April 1.
Today is also the last time we’ll deliver patch notes in this format. Soon, you’ll have to follow each developer’s individual Clubhouse account in order to learn about the latest changes. Good luck.

With Masters behind us, it’s time to get to work on those promised Viper and Yoru changes. Details are below, but remember that we’ll keep a close eye on how these play out once they’re live.
Slide on those headphones and enjoy HRTF, which helps pinpoint enemy footsteps, reloads, and Deathmatch respawns using a simulated surround sound space. Also, your love of Escalation means we’re returning the favor with some ability updates and loadout variations for the mode.
