VALORANT 5.04 PBE Patch Notes: Unreal Engine Upgrade, Custom Crosshair Color, Bug Fixed, and More

Riot Games have revealed what they have in store for us in VALORANT and have announced the upcoming VALORANT 5.04 PBE Patch Notes.

VALORANT is a free-to-play popular fps tactical shooter game developed by Riot Games. Since its release, VALORANT has become hugely popular among the gaming community. Riot Games made the game easy to learn but hard to master.

Millions of people worldwide are playing VALORANT every day. To make their experience frustration-free and smooth, Riot Games tests every change made to the game on a public beta test server. The changes made to the game are first implemented in this PBE server and later transferred to Live servers based on player feedback.

Usually, the changes made to VALORANT in the PBE get implemented to the Live server with minor adjustments. So we can look at the PBE patch notes to understand what is coming to the game in the future. Recently, Riot Games released patch notes for VALORANT 5.04 PBE patch notes.

Some of the changes include Unreal Engine upgrade and crosshair Quality of Life changes. With the crosshair changes coming, we will be able to change our crosshair color, copy spectating player’s crosshair, and many incredible things. Below you will find the full VALORANT 5.04 Patch Notes.
