What's next for Valorant?

Valorant's most recent patch was the big release of the new Act, and with this come a fair amount of changes, but nothing compared to previous patches.

With Riot recently changing a few agents, the next update should balance these out further and adjust some quality of life issues.

Here are the patch notes for Valorant's 6.11 Update.

Release Date

6.11 is the next patch in the new Episode, and will release on June 6th, 2023.

COSMETICS UPDATES

MAP UPDATES

  • Pearl is disabled.

GAMEPLAY SYSTEM UPDATES

  • Combat report now shows “Allies Dazed” in addition to “Enemies Dazed” for all Concuss abilities.

WEAPONS UPDATES

  • Weapon Accuracy on Ascenders/Ziplines (Ropes)
    • Min spread on ropes increased to 65% of the walking spread.
      • Rifles from .8 >>> 1.3
      • Classic from .35 >>> .55

      • SMGs from .3 >>> .65
      • Snipers & Shotguns unchanged.
  • Walking and running spread on ropes increased to match the walking and running spread on ground.

Shorty

  • Reserve ammo adjusted from 10 >>> 6
  • Price adjusted from 150$ >>> 300$
  • Damage at no fall-off adjusted from 12 >>> 11
  • Damage at first step fall-off (7 meters) adjusted from 8 >>> 6

Frenzy

  • Min spread increased from .45 >>> .65
  • Spread curve adjusted.
    • Maximum spread reached in 5 bullets instead of 6.
  • Recoil pitch curve adjusted.
    • Maximum recoil will be reached in 5 bullets instead of 6. Total recoil is lowered to compensate.

Error Power

  • Error Power (also known as Center Biasing for us) is a tool we utilize to reward accuracy by biasing shots toward the center of the crosshair.
  • We’ve made the adjustment to significantly reduce center biasing while in any movement states besides walking or stationary. As a result, guns will be less accurate when fired while moving as shots will have a higher chance to be further from the center of the crosshair.

BUG FIXES

  • Sova’s cape dynamics were redone and smoothed out, while still maintaining a silhouette close to his body to not give away enemy player position.
  • Prerequisites to be noted before reporting a bug
