    Competitive updates

    After listening to your feedback, we’ve decided to remove the recent rank restriction to 5 stacks that was implemented in patch 7.06. We know how important it is to play with your friends and you need flexibility to do so.

    Initially, the rank restriction was done to prevent people from illegally reaching the highest ranks like Radiant. In the end, we felt that your ability to be flexible with your 5 stack was more important than the small number of people who misused this exploit.

    However, we still recognize that boosting is a threat to competitive integrity and are working on an appropriate long-term solution that doesn’t affect your ability to play with friends in 5 Stacks.

    Map updates


    • Updated the destruction VFF for the destructible door panels on the middoors/garage to make it easier to see when falling.

    Performance updates

    • Enabled multi-threaded rendering for discrete Intel GPUs and reduced the required CPU core count

    Bug fixes


    In patch 7.06, we fixed a bug that allowed surround sound for game tie output when certain conditions were met, but surround mixing was untested and unsupported. VALORANT currently only supports stereo and mono sound output.

    • To simulate surround sound on headphones, we present an HRTF configuration. We do not recommend combining the in-game HRTF setting with your surround sound virtualization software at the same time as this will result in double processing.
    • Note that other surround sound virtualization software cannot extract surround sound information from a stereo mix


    • The cipher
      • Neural Steal (X) now completes even if Cipher dies after casting.
      • You can be blinded by seeing the flash through the Cypher’s Spycam (E) as the round ends
    • Gecko
      • Dizzy’s (E) enemy detection range is now correctly reduced while within Viper’s Pit (X) ability.


    • Fixed an issue where the attacking team had priority over the defending team in the overtime vote
    • Fixed a bug where a second timer bar would appear after the “Choose Side” vote ended.
    • Fixed a bug where some scenarios would cause overtime priority votes later in the following round.
