Valorant Patch Notes 1.12 – Act Rank Badges Disabled Temporarily

Riot Games have revealed the patch notes for v1.12 of their competitive shooter Valorant through their blog post today, and it seems to be quite small when compared to the last few patches.

Not much additional stuff has been implemented to the game through this new patch, but Riot have explained why the Act Ranks have gone missing in-game.

“Act Rank Badges are disabled in-game while we investigate a potential issue where they may be causing performance hitches in-game,” Riot devs said. “Your Act Rank Badge will still display in Competitive lobbies, map load in, and on the end-of-game screen.”

The update also fixes some underlying bugs in the shooter and introduces some changes to the observer mode.

Here’s a detailed list of changes in Valorant patch 1.12 as mentioned in the blog by Riot:
