GAMEPLAY SYSTEMS UPDATES

  • Reworked the way guns process Zoom inputs for ADS and Scopes when using Toggle Zoom.
    • There should now be fewer cases that can lead to Zoom disagreements between the Client and Server under adverse network conditions like packet loss and ping jitter. Additionally, Zoom Inputs when using Toggle Zoom can now be buffered earlier than before and multiple zoom level transitions can be buffered at once.

MAP UPDATES

New Map: Lotus

  • Lotus is a new 3-site map that offers a variety of rotation options. Unlock the secrets behind the doors of these ancient ruins.
  • Please note that the Lotus-only queue will only be playable in Swiftplay mode for one week and then goes into the competitive and Unrated map rotation in Patch 6.1.

Split

Split is returning with a few tweaks to make attacking a little easier.

  • A main
    • The first engagement area for Attackers has been widened and a small ledge added for mixups.
  • A Main Box
    • The boost box next to the orb has been reduced to give Attackers a new position looking into A site.
  • A Rafters:
    • The under-over area has been removed, making this much easier to deal with as an Attacker.
  • A Tower:
    • The back section of the Tower has been flattened to make the fight to the Ramps easier for both teams.
  • Mid Bottom:
    • Players can now silently drop down the Mid platform.
    • The trick-jump up onto the Mid box has also been removed for simplicity.
  • B Tower:
    • The defender side jump-up box has been removed to simplify the space.
  • B Rope Pocket:
    • The hard corner here has been smoothed out to make clearing the spot easier.

Map Rotation

  • Please note that Breeze and Bind have now been removed from competitive and Unrated map rotation, but are still playable in all other modes.

Omen’s Dark Cover (E)

  • Dark Cover placed inside walls will now fall to the height of the nearby ground.
    • One-way smokes are a part of VALORANT, but they are difficult to play against and we want to keep them limited to intentional and understandable areas. We’ll be keeping a close eye on how this impacts Omen’s power levels.

Agent Utility

  • Most Agent utility (except for molotovs which has not yet been implemented) will now damage the Lotus breakable door as well as the wall plates on Ascent and Haven.
