WEAPON UPDATES

We always hated kill by run and gun, don’t we? Good News, Riot has nerfed run and gun a lot. They also nerfed walk shooting accuracy for all guns. Also, some weapons prices got reduced to adjust with ability’s high price. Here’s the changes:

ALL WEAPONS

  • Signature abilities now only provide a minimum of one charge per round instead of accumulating a charge every round.
    • For example, if you have a two charge signature ability and you end the round with one charge remaining, you will not gain an additional charge
  • Charges gained from cooldowns are now always temporary
  • Visibility returns faster during the fadeout period of all flashes

ALL RIFLES

  • Walking inaccuracy changed from 1.3 >>> 2.0
  • Running unchanged at 5.0

ALL HEAVIES

  • Walking Inaccuracy changed from .5 >>> 2.4
  • Running unchanged at 6.0

ALL SMGS

  • Walking inaccuracy changed from .3 >>> 1.0
  • Running inaccuracy changed from 2.0 >>> 2.5

CLASSIC

  • Walking inaccuracy changed from .25 >>> .84
  • Running inaccuracy changed from 1.5 >>> 2.1

FRENZY

  • Price decreased 500 >>> 450
  • Walking inaccuracy changed from .25 >>> .8
  • Running inaccuracy changed from 1.0 >>> 2.0

GHOST

  • Walking inaccuracy changed from .25 >>> .92
  • Running Inaccuracy changed from 1.85 >>> 2.3

SHERIFF

  • Walking inaccuracy changed from .25 >>> 1.2
  • Running inaccuracy changed from 2.0 >>> 3.0

JUDGE

  • Price increased 1600 >>> 1850
  • Damage falloff at 10m changed from 13 per pellet >>> 10 per pellet
  • Damage falloff at 15m changed from 10 per pellet >>> 7 per pellet
    • We want the Judge to be a devastating, multi-fragging, close range option and believe it’s a bit more premium than we had previously given it credit for. It was also performing better than expected at range so we’re taking that down a notch.

BULLDOG

  • Hip-fire (full auto mode) firing rate increased from 9.15 RPS >>> 9.5 RPS
  • Price decreased 2100 >>> 2050The bulldog was feeling just slightly underpowered in close/mid range situations where hip fire was the go-to. So we’re giving it a bit more of a firing rate to compete, and lowering the price to make it more enticing to buy.

SHORTY

  • Price decreased 200 >>> 150

STINGER

  • Price decreased 1100 >>> 950

BUCKY

  • Price decreased 900 >>> 850

MARSHAL

  • Price decreased 1000 >>> 950

ARES

  • Price decreased 1600 >>> 1550

OPERATOR

  • Price decreased from 5000 >>> 4700
  • Price decreased 2400 >>> 2250

GUARDIAN

  • Price decreased 2400 >>> 2250

COMPETITIVE UPDATES

To improve ranked matchmaking accuracy and fairness, Riot has made some changes in Valorant. Improved matchmaking accuracy across all ranks. Winning games still most important but individual performance will be accounted for improved matchmaking. Close games will have a smaller effect on rank rating.

They tweaked some minor changes for hard stuck old accounts. If your skill improves you will easily climb up to higher ranks. Rank placement increased to Diamond 1 so that top players don’t need to grind as much as previous acts.

PERFORMANCE UPDATES

Another most important thing about this update is they fixed a lot of bugs, did some UI/UX improvements, optimized Characters, camera calculations, ambient audio, changed kill feed UI. They also added a “ROUND ROLLBACK” feature in Tournament Mode custom games.
