Valorant Update 7.06 Patch Notes

Valorant’s latest update has just hit the surface and suffice it to say it does bring any major changes to the game. Most of the updates are aimed at gameplay optimization and quality-of-life changes.

One of the more notable changes comes with Sage. Her voice has established a whole fanbase within Valorant and now she will be getting new voice and interaction lines that fans can get excited about. It further addresses changes when loading accessories aimed towards reducing load times.

One majorly overlooked update was Riot claiming to actively monitor competitive matches and keep looking for players boosting with bots and other players. To avoid boosting, Riot will only allow certain ranks to play with each other in the competitive modes thus reducing the chances of coming across smurfs or boosters.

GENERAL UPDATES

  • We’re implementing some updates to how we load your accessories, like gun buddies and weapons skins so that it will reduce your load times. This will land mid-patch.
SAGE
  • We’ve updated Sage’s voice lines and added interaction lines with more Agents.
COMPETITIVE UPDATES
  • There has been a wave of competitive rank boosting with bots and real players. In an effort to protect against this abuse, we have introduced restrictions where Ascendant players and higher can only invite players with Platinum rank and higher to their competitive party.
  • We will continue to actively monitor botting abuse and ban any accounts suspicious of this behaviour.
  • For more information on our Gameplay Systems and our approach to combating disruptive behaviour.
GAMEPLAY SYSTEMS UPDATES
  • Made some back-end updates for Combat Reports in order to fix instances where all the correct information wasn’t showing. Please let us know if there are any weird behaviours—especially after death and pre-round start.
BUG FIXES
GAMEPLAY SYSTEMS
  • Fixed a rare bug where you would be revealed unintentionally in places where you shouldn’t be seen after purchasing a weapon.
  • Fixed an issue where the Spike plant and defuse UI bar did not appear for minimal HUD observers.
  • Fixed a bug where vision cones would flicker at the start of a round on Sunset.
