The 8.10 patch will be a short one.

The VALORANT 8.10 patch will be Episode 8 Act 3‘s third update. The update will not bring anything significant into the game except for a few basic training event changes. From now on, the welcome contract will be more user-friendly for the new players. Apart from that, the patch will contain two small agent-related bug fixes.

Here’s the full 8.10 patch notes

Progression Updates

  • Basic Training Event
    • We are releasing an update to our Welcome Contract for new players! The new structure includes clearer missions and milestones to help you navigate the New Player Experience with a bit more guidance before your Ranked climb.
    • The Basic Training Event will appear similar to other Events, allowing you to view your progress, understand your goals at each milestone, and complete them to earn rewards to jumpstart your VALORANT experience.
    • If you have previously completed the Welcome Contract, you will not see the Basic Training Event (don’t worry, you have already earned all the same rewards!).
    • If you are partially complete with the Welcome Contract, your previously earned rewards will be reflected in the Basic Training Event when it comes online, and you will be able to proceed through Basic Training, earning XP toward your Battlepass.

Bug Fixes

  • Agent
    • Fixed an issue where shots fired immediately after exiting Cypher’s Spycam (E) would bypass the weapon’s raise animation and not deal damage. The weapon raise animation is now played for its full duration.
    • Fixed issues where the timer for Clove’s Pick-Me-Up (C) could be restarted which would allow Clove to have more time than intended to activate the ability.

When will 8.10 patch release?

The VALORANT 8.10 patch is expected to release on May 21, 2024.
