Valorant: Patch Note 1.06, Updates and Air Shotgun

Two weeks after the release of Valorant Act 2, Riot Games deploys a small patch to slightly change the meta installed since the arrival of Killjoy. Nothing very exceptional but some updates, especially concerning the air shotgun, as well as some bug fixes.

AGENT UPDATES

  • The audio and visuals for blinding effects (Phoenix Curveball and Breach Flashpoint) should better indicate when to turn away, and when it's safe to look again.

WEAPON UPDATES

  • All shotguns updated to be less accurate when fired while in the air.
  • Spread penalty when in air increased .5 >>> 1.25
  • While shotguns are doing well in situations they are supposed to,, there's been overly frustrating moments where people are accurate with these weapons while in the air. We hope to curb some of those encounters while still making them possible if you catch an opponent at a short distance. We’ll also be investigating more potential changes to shotguns now that we’re rested.

QUALITY OF LIFE

  • In Collection menu screens, the “Show Owned Only” toggle now persists between screens and client restarts.

BUG FIXES

  • Potential fix for the bug where the player's HUD sometimes disappears.
  • Fixed a bug in deathmatch match history & match details where ties between 3 or more players were not displaying as a tie, instead showing the lowest rank as if they were not tied (so a 3 way tie for 2nd would show 4TH PLACE instead of 2ND PLACE (TIED)).
  • Fixed a bug that allowed progress towards competitive matchmaking for new players by forfeiting unrated games.Forfeited games will not count towards the Competitive requirement for the team who forfeited.
  • Fixed a bug where ‘<Missing String Table>’ would appear in the chat log.
  • Fixed a bug where strange player names could appear in chat when managing party invites
  • Fixed a bug where some players were missing rewards after reaching the end of Agent Contracts or the Act Battlepass. Playing a game should grant the missing rewards, including missing rewards from Act 1.

It's now possible to know if you have played with streamers in Valorant

It's not a goal in itself, but it's always nice to play with or against streamers. An online platform allows you to find your appearances on Valorant streams.
