Server Updates

VALORANT Patch 4.07 contains some exciting news for Latin America! This small update comes with a new set of servers added in the LATAM region. The exact location or amount of these servers is unknown, but it should be enough to resolve latency issues across the entire region. They will not be available immediately after the update is released but are scheduled to go live shortly after.

Weapon Updates

  • The Bulldog and the Stinger now have a slight firing input delay when bringing the weapon to aim down sights (ADS).

◦ This will prevent players from gaining an increased aim accuracy from the quick switch to burst fire mode. It will make switching fire modes mid-fight a tad ineffective.

◦ This change does NOT apply to the opposite situation. When switching back to a full auto mode, you will still be able to shoot a weapon instantaneously.

  • Ability based weapons (Chamber’s Headhunter and Tour de Force, Neon’s Overdrive, Jett’s Blade Storm, and Raze’s Showstopper) can now be input queued to be equipped/activated after the current action is completed.

Other Updates

  • New detection features have been added for several different away from keyboard (AFK) behaviors.
  • The Valorant Points (VP) purchase page will now load within a few seconds (it previously took upwards of a minute in some cases). We hope you can still hold an angle patiently for that long.

Bug Fixes for VALORANT Patch 4.07

  • FIXED: Yoru could previously equip and use a weapon immediately at the end of his ultimate by using a certain exploit with ropes. That is no longer possible.
  • FIXED: Players could previously defuse the spike while simultaneously “channeling” an agent’s abilities. That is no longer possible.
  • FIXED: Skye’s ultimate ability Seekers previously could not go through destructible doors on Ascent. That is now possible.
  • FIXED: Communication-restricted players previously could not listen to team voice chat. That is now fixed.
  • FIXED: Players were sometimes not immediately removed from a match following a ban. That is now fixed, and they will now be humiliatingly and rightfully kicked from the game.
  • FIXED: A bug that was causing performance bonuses to show at the incorrect times has now been fixed.
  • FIXED: Previously, when briefly tapping the “Use Spike” button to plant the spike, a bug would end up causing you to hold the spike instead of your last equipped weapon if a player did not fully commit to a plant. That is now fixed, and it will automatically switch to your last equipped weapon.

Important Competitive Notice

Riot will NOT use VALORANT Patch 4.07 for the current international esports event VCT 2022: Stage 1 Masters LAN held in Reykjavík, Iceland. There will most likely be a bigger change post Masters, which ends April 24th, but as of yet, nothing is official.
