Valorant Update 3.03
Valorant Update 3.03 Riot Games

Riot Games has deployed the latest update for Valorant. Patch 3.08 adds some really nice eSports features - one of which allows coaches to instantly swap between players when spectating using numbers one to five on the keyboard.

Also introduced in this patch is a big improvement to in-game reporting. Now, whenever you report a certain player for suspected cheating or other offenses, the system will notify you if your reports have been handled by the devs. If you are offline at that moment, the notification will greet you upon return.

Besides that, you can now equip any Account Level Border you have unlocked so far. If you do not want others to know your account level, you can hide it. If you want to enable it back, simply uncheck the appropriate box located in the Level Border tab.

Patch Highlights

  • Your reports matter, and we want you to know that! You will now be notified if we took action on one of your reports, whether you are offline or not
  • If your client is up and running, you’ll receive a notification. If you’re offline at the time of action, fret not! You’ll receive your notification upon your return
