Valorant has become one of the most highly regarded multiplayer shooters of current times, and it has done so in a short amount of time. A new patch for the game is set to release today (July 7), and it won’t bring huge changes to the game. Valorant also got a big update, a new episode, very recently, so maybe it is not completely unexpected that the game isn’t getting another huge update. The update comes in the form of a small patch that solves some of the issues that the game currently has.

  2. In custom games, there were some minor problems regarding the overlapping of the invite button UI and the Defender Coach UI, that’s been fixed as well.
  3. Some visual issues caused problems with account leveling at the end of the game, Riot fixed that.
