VALORANT – 1.12 Patch Notes

VALORANT – 1.12 Patch Notes

COMPETITIVE UPDATES

  • Act Rank Badges are disabled in-game while we investigate a potential issue where they may be causing performance hitches in-game. Your Act Rank Badge will still display in Competitive lobbies, map load in, and on the end-of-game screen.
    • The Competitive team will continue to investigate the system to work towards a holistic fix in a future patch.
    • Big shout out to Kevin.

GAME SYSTEMS UPDATES

Observer

  • Observers no longer hear ping audio
  • Improved sightline visibility in well-lit areas
  • Added Game State Modification cheat to allow moderators to adjust various aspects of the game (player stats, money, etc.) in a tournament setting
  • Rolled back fixed team colors change from 1.11
    • This was causing some confusion as people have started to associate red with attack, and green with defense
    • There were a couple bugs causing certain UI elements to display in the wrong color

    • Fixed issue where players could target mid-air (dropped) weapons with some abilities
