Changes on VALORANT’s maps

Competition mode

As you could read in the quote above, a competitive mode arrives on VALORANT: “We have added competition mode and ranked matchmaking. They will be available soon. “

Observer mode

  • In custom games with activated cheats, a new option now allows you to browse the map through the walls.

  • TheSkills ATH no longer displayed when you see through the camera of a drone in Observer mode.

  • When you leave the camera of a drone, you will now return to the last player observed if it still represents a valid target.

  • When you browse the views of different players, Observer mode will now make you go through all the players of the same team before moving on to the other team.

Bug fixes

  • “Spike asked” ad will no longer appear after the end of a round and will therefore no longer mask the end of the round, which should allow a better view when the spike has been landed after the allotted time.

  • The announcement “Spike carrier eliminated” will no longer also display the announcement “An ally defuses spike”.

  • Fixed a rare issue due to which players’ weapons could float in front of them. It was way too scary.

  • Fixed a rare issue where player models in third person view could be out of sync from the server after the “double tap” of a defusing, which resulted in missed shots.

  • Correction ofaiming problem because of which some players who used a low sensitivity lost the possibility of making small mouse movements.

  • Fixed an issue where canceling the pose of the spike or picking up an orb could sometimes play the wrong animation of rearrangement (which was slower), which gave the impression that the player could shoot earlier than expected after the cancellation (the timing was correct, but not the animation).

  • Correction of the zone names of the map so that translations appear under the minimap.

  • update of Bucky’s secondary shot so that it now deals instant damage (hitscan).
