    • KAY/O Zero/Point


Hunter’s Fury (X)

    • KAY/O Zero/Point


Killjoy’s Turret is a versatile ability that provides information, chip damage, and a powerful
slow. While manageable during mid to later rounds, the Turret can be especially oppressive on pistol rounds down longer sightlines, where the tagging intensity combined with weapon
spread makes it challenging to press forward. These changes aim to slightly tone down the
Turret’s ability to impede rushes and give opponents more counterplay options.

Turret (E)

  • Bullet tagging reduced 72.5% slow to 29.5% slow


The Boom Bots’ ability to clear space, spot, and track opponents, as well as one-shot enemies with Light Shields, left you with limited options on how to counterplay-especially during low economy rounds. So, we’re trading off reduced damage output for an ability cost reduction in order to introduce more Boom Bot counterplay options. This should also increase the frequency that Raze mains can use Boom Bot to create space.

Boom Bot (C)

  • Max damage reduced 125 >>> 80
  • Min damage reduced 50 >>> 30
  • Cost reduced 400 >>> 300

Competitive Updates

  • Immortal 1/2/3 rank tiers are back!
    • The Leaderboard will update to distinguish between those of you in each Immortal tier.
  • Updated Ranked grouping restrictions to accommodate the return of Immortal 1/2/3:
    • Diamond 1 → Immortal 1
    • Diamond 2 → Immortal 2
    • Diamond 3 → Immortal 3
  • Adjusted Competitive ranked distribution
  • Fracture the only queue!
    • This queue is a standard, Unrated mode that will give players a chance to practice the new map before they see it in Competitive play.
    • Fracture-only queue will be available for 2 weeks; afterwards Fracture will enter other modes, including Competitive.

Premium Battlepass Bonus XP

  • Upgrading to the Premium Battlepass will grant a 3% XP boost toward Battlepass tier progression for all matchmade games until the end of Act II
    • We believe the Battlepass experience is at its best when you’re able to earn hype rewards as you unlock tiers, hitting major milestones and feeling good about what you’ve earned.
  • This is not retroactive, so upgrading early will give you access to the most amount of XP
  • The XP boost does not apply toward Daily or Weekly Missions

Social Updates

  • Updated AFK detection logic to deter players from farming Battlepass/Account Levels by AFKing in-game modes like Deathmatch and Snowball Fight

Performance Updates 

  • Updated the ping calculation to exclude the server frame time.
  • Updated markers used by NVIDIA Reflex
    • NVIDIA Reflex is used to reduce and measure rendering latency. This update should allow Reflex to better pace frames by adding present markers as well as fixes on some older markers.

Valorant Patch Notes 3.05 Release Date

The Valorant Patch Notes 3.05 release date is yet to be revealed.

All in all this new Valorant Patch Notes 3.05 patch is going to be much more interesting. The new agent whether it comes or not, but the new map, the changes in the agent’s abilities are totally loaded. Killjoy and Raze got nerfs, Brimstone Buffs and everything is going to be awesome. Let us wait till the Valorant devs make the changes so we can get the vibe on the actual gameplay.
