Valorant 4.02 Update Patch Notes


  • Improved latency for Windowed Fullscreen mode to match closer to Fullscreen Exclusive
    • These improvements should play well with in-game overlays, however, having another program’s window on top of your gameplay window will negate these benefits.


  • AFK detection buff
    • Updated detections for non-participatory behavior in-game
  • Agent-select reporting
    • Looks like there’s been some confusion around Agent-select reporting. Remember, you can right-click players in pre-game and report them if they’re being disruptive!


  • Fixed a bug where the pulsing FX around the Spectrum Z logo were appearing next to the trigger during second inspect animation on the Bulldog.


  • Fixed issue where Killjoy’s Alarmbot and Turret were unretrievable after being resurrected by Sage.



  • Projectile Follow currently bugs out for Observer Followers
    • We’re working on a fix, but this one missed 4.02. We appreciate your patience!
