PatchBot will keep your Discord channel up-to-date on all the latest Valorant changes.
Your newest VALORANT Act has arrived! It’s true, it’s true. That means this patch comes with a new Agent [have you met?], a fresh Battlepass, and our new Deathmatch (beta) mode.
Act Ranks go live—and you can dive into our dedicated post for more—but competitive changes also include matchmaking adjustments that hope to better pair solo and solo/duo players against...
How about those Elderflame weapon skins? At least they weren’t cake. Hope you caught some of that VALORANT fan art, too.
On to this patch. Four Agents get some polish, with Viper coming away with a series of buffs, including a per second increase of her decay against enemies. You’re also gonna have to work a bit extra now if you wanna use those...

Also, Sage gets a nerf. Promise we’re not picking on healers.
If you’re reading this, it’s too late—VALORANT is launching.
What’s new? Reyna is the latest Agent to join VALORANT—straight from the heart of Mexico. Ascent, an open playground for small wars of position and attrition, enters the map pool. Spike Rush (beta) also arrives to deliver a fresh and more hectic flavor of VALORANT.
