PatchBot will keep your Discord channel up-to-date on all the latest Valorant changes.
Skye enters VALORANT and will be available to play in all queues.
(Recently, one of you asked, “how can she be ‘Skye’ if she’s on the ground?” Well, just repeat to yourself, “it’s just a game, I should really just relax.”)
You already know about our latest map, Icebox. You’ve even stuck your head in the freezer to run scrims. Hopefully, you’ll be happy to learn we’ve weighed Unrated queue to favor getting Icebox (at least for the first part of this patch).
The Operator is experiencing it’s coming-of-age movie. But before you get all “look how they massacred my boy” on us, let one of our lead designers walk you through our analysis. There’s also some systemic weapon updates to change your accuracy after landing from a jump.
Five Agents get the squeeze, including ongoing updates to make Viper a more flexible threat, and some parity across the fire rate buffs from Brimstone and Reyna.
After a heavy duty patch last time, this one will be a little light. Raze mains should study the Blast Pack changes, guardians of the Guardian might appreciate the buff, and you'll soon have a lower chance of going back to back on the same map in any queue.
This intro is brought to you by Orcane, with the big picture:
Alright, a full patch this time.
Killjoy gets her first major update, which should empower more counterplay against her Nanoswarm, as well as reduce its damage. Viper, Breach, Sova, and Sage also get some worthy changes.
All shotguns get their aimpunch and tagging tuned, you can choose to remake a match (under certain conditions), lots of tweaks to the observer tool, and you get some new features that should help keep your identity private in-game.
We’re back and we hope you’ve clocked many hours into Act II, are showing off your Act Rank and clicking heads with Killjoy.
Consider this the “Air Shotgun” patch. Some bug fixes below, too.
