VALORANT Patch Notes 8.02 is finally out. Apparently, there won’t be any major changes with the update.

VALORANT 8.02 Patch notes have been released, and the game update will be coming out shortly, along with many changes to the game. Players worldwide have been waiting for the patch notes as the PBE for the update was previously canceled due to Riot Games’ short staff.

However, there’s no need to worry. Not much will change with the update. As mentioned in the patch notes, there’ll be some minor agent and cosmetic-related updates with the patch. However, the only thing to look for in the update is the Esports hub.
