Valorant Patch 5.03 Riot Games

 

Valorant’s latest update isn’t going to be liked by Chamber fans. Developer Riot Games released the small Patch 5.03 today, which nerfs Chamber as he was doing too well for his own good. Neon also received multiple changes, whereas Jett suffered from a minor nerf.

The game’s engine has been updated to Unreal Engine 4.26. This change will improve the tool sets used by the developer, though players will not notice the upgrade. The new engine brings lots of good stuff, but players should also expect some UI bugs until things are ironed out.

You can read the highlights of the update below.

GENERAL UPDATES
  • Engine update to Unreal Engine 4.26
    • This update improves the tool set available to our developers in many ways, however, this change will likely go unnoticed by you, as the goal of any Engine update is to happen under the radar.
    • There are some known issues this time around though, mostly the UI is misbehaving. We’re fixing these as quickly as we can, but expect some funkiness in the game and in the Main Menu. If anything interrupts your gameplay, please submit a bug report.
  • Agent Browser visual design refresh
    • Just thought we should leverage some of the cool Agent art and lean more into our VALORANT style.
