It has only been a few days since the Valorant Episode 5 Act 2 update hit the live servers, and the patch notes for the upcoming PBE (Public Beta Environment) update has already been revealed by Riot Games. 

Valorant’s 5.04 patch has been a bit underwhelming to say the least. Despite being the introduction of a new Act, the update didn’t bring much with it other than a fresh Battle Pass. However, the improvements to the game’s crosshair system has been appreciated by the community. 

Fans were hoping that the patch 5.05 would bring some big changes to the game, and with the release of the PBE patch notes for the update, we can finally get an idea about what the new update has in store for us.
