Valorant’s Fracture is perhaps one of the most unique maps currently in the game, where Attackers have the freedom to spawn on either side of the map and take bombsites from various angles. However, it seems that Fracture is going to undergo a rework in the near future.
Map design is an important aspect of any competitive game. And when it comes to a fast-paced competitive shooter like Valorant, the developers have to go an extra mile to make sure that the map is not only well-built, but also balanced for both the Attacking and Defending sides.
As confirmed by Valorant’s game designer Joe Lansford, the map rework is expected to hit the live servers as part of a major content update around 18th October.
The rework will likely make the A-site of the map easier to hold for the Defenders while also enabling the Attackers to have an easier time guarding the site post-plant.

Lansford said in a statement, “The high-level theme is some general quality of life changes across the map, and hopefully, make the A site more defensible.”
The Dish area of Fracture is also expected to be reworked in the update.
“For Fracture, we wanted to flip neutral space on its head. Neutral space is the territory between each team’s half of the map,” the dev continued. “Generally, the onus is on the Attackers and the pressure is on Defenders to push out and take space.”
When Will Fracture be Reworked?
While no specific release date has been set in stone as of yet, fans can expect the reworked Fracture to release as part of the Episode 5 Act 3 update that will go live around October 18th.
