Valorant patch 3.01 is live, and while it’s not as massive as the last update, it does tackle some significant bugs.
Riot Games transformed ranked queues with the addition of Kay/O and weapon changes in Patch 3.0. In the recent update, the developer cleaned up some of the bigger bugs that have lingered since then.
Many players had reported a bug with Sage’s wall that allowed her to boost teammates at strange angles. For example, players could pick off enemies at B long by elevating on Sage’s wall in Defender’s base by setting up her barrier mid-air in different spots around the maps. This bug has now been fixed in the current patch. Sage can no longer place Barrier Orb on some projectiles while they’re in the air.
Another significant bug was triggered in Skye’s kit after Kay/O’s addition. Players reported that Skye could still blindside the enemies while being suppressed by Kay/O’s dagger. Patch 3.01 fixes a bug where she was able to activate the flash of Guiding Light while suppressed. The update also patches the ability to heal KAY/O while downed in NULL/CMD. Sova’s Recon Bolt projectile has also seen a couple of fixes.
As part of its YR1 events, Valorant introduced an account leveling system that rewards players for spending time on the game. However, many players complained that their initial level didn’t reflect the exact time spent. After patch 3.01, impacted players will receive the correct account level and keep the AP gained while playing at the incorrect level.
