Riot skipped VALORANT patch 2.10 in order to make some surface-level optimation for better performance.

Usually, after skipping a patch Riot tends to come out with massive changes to the meta. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case with VALORANT patch 2.11. Instead of a firecracker this patch is small and aims to improve the performance of mid to high-end PCs.

According to Riot, they have made some ability-related tweaks that should improve the FPS of the client by 1% if you are already using a mid to high-end system. Other than that, there are subtle game modes and UI-related fixes that arrived with this patch.

However, this is just a small stopgap patch. More like a calm before the storm, according to Riot. They are saving their big announcements for later in Episode 3. Expect massive changes to be announced in the upcoming Episode 3 of VALORANT.

Full Patch 2.11


  • Added a Leaderboard search bar to help you find players by name


  • Replication is back as part of our modes rotation and will replace Escalation for now


  • Improved Client framerate by 1% on average for medium to high spec machines by optimizing abilities, equipment, and weapons in the your inventory
  • Optimized Agent and Environment mesh clipping calculations 


  • Fixed fonts for various regional languages to improve readability
  • Updated ping wheel and radio wheel to ignore non-movement inputs while the wheel is displayed
  • Fixed an animation issue with abnormal hand positions while equipping weapons



  • Fixed an issue where Reyna couldn’t sell then rebuy Dismiss ability during Buy Phase


  • Fixed a bug that was causing an infinite load symbol while viewing a friend’s career.
  • Fixed several Leaderboard UI bugs.


  • In the model viewer, a hitch is caused by the Sharpening setting interacting with MSAA
    • If you encounter this, we advise that you toggle off the Sharpening setting until we can ship a fix.
