Valorant is always looking to improve the in-game experience for players.

One of the the stand out performance fixes is the Improved latency for Windowed Fullscreen mode to match closer to Fullscreen Exclusive. These improvements should play well with in-game overlays, however, having another program’s window on top of your gameplay window will negate these benefits.

 The team at Riot Games credited the diagnostics to @MyNameIsMJP and @SheriefFYI

Some of the bug fixes are listed below.


  • AFK detection buff
    • Updated detections for non-participatory behavior in game
  • Agent-select reporting
    • Looks like there’s been some confusion around Agent-select reporting. Remember, you can right click players in pre-game and report them if they’re being disruptive!



  • Fixed a bug where the pulsing FX around the Spectrum Z logo were appearing next to the trigger during second inspect animation on the Bulldog.


  • Fixed issue where Killjoy’s Alarmbot and Turret were unretrievable after being resurrected by Sage.



  • Projectile Follow currently bugs out for Observer Followers
    • The team is currently working on a fix, but this one missed 4.02.
