Greetings Agents! Patch 1.06 of VALORANT brings a few tweaks and changes impacting shotgun brothers Bucky & Judge. The next big patch will be 1.07.
AUDIO & VISUAL UPDATE
The audio and visuals for blinding effects (Phoenix Curveball and Breach Flashpoint) will now let us know when to turn away, and when it’s safe to look again, in a better way.
The shotgun line on VALORANT is updated to be less accurate when fired while in the air. No longer OP Jetts gliding on-air and getting ridiculous kills from a distance. Shotguns will still hit on-air; just with less accuracy & there will be more updates on this line of weapons in the future.
- Spread penalty when in air increased 0.5 >>> 1.25
Quality of Life
- In Collection menu screens, the “Show Owned Only” toggle now persists between screens and client restarts.
- A bug in deathmatch match history & match details where ties between 3 or more players were not displaying as a tie, instead showing the lowest rank as if they were not tied (so a 3 way tie for 2nd would show 4TH PLACE instead of 2ND PLACE (TIED)).
- A bug that allowed progress towards competitive matchmaking for new players by forfeiting unrated games.
- Forfeited games will not count towards the Competitive requirement for the team who forfeited.
- ‘<Missing String Table>’ in the chat log.
- Strange player names no longer appears in chat when managing party invites
- Some players were missing rewards after reaching the end of Agent Contracts or the Act Battlepass. Playing a game should grant the missing rewards, including missing rewards from Act 1.
You have reached the end of VALORANT Patch 1.06! Do you think the shotgun & flash updates will make more sense especially in VALORANT Deathmatch mode? Let’s keep in touch for the next batch of the VALORANT updates.
