VALORANT: everything new added in the patch 1.05 including all the data mined content, new weapon skins, killjoy voice lines, remake match option, battle pass sprays, player cards and more

Riot Games recently launched VALORANT’s new patch 1.05 which marked the beginning of their new ACT.

Even though most of the changes brought to the new patch like the much needed Raze Nerf, new game mode, and a plethora of bug fixes was really welcomed by the community, some unforeseen bugs really hampered the competitive experience. After the patch went live, things were so bad that Riot Games decided to forfeit competitive matchmaking and even removed Raze from the agent selection menu.

VALORANT’s game director later thanked the community via twitter who patiently waited till Riot fixed all of their game-breaking bugs. At the same time, Riot Games took a week-long break from the game to avoid getting burned out.

Data miners found a lot of new interesting bits that were added with the patch 1.05. Especial mention goes to ValorantExpress on twitter for making this list possible.

Everything new added(data mined):

Act 2 timeline:

Act 2 started on August 4th, 2020, and will likely end on October 13th, 2020 based on the timeline that was data-mined.

Morello, one of the developers of VALORANT, recently explained that they won’t be adding any new maps until the next episode. Since Episode 2 is likely to arrive on January 12, 2021, there will be no more news maps added to the game until then.

Everything there is to know about Remakes:

Since players are still complaining about the AFKers in the ranked mode, Riot is now currently experimenting on a system that would allow players to leave a match without any rank penalty only if one player is AFK. Additional, players will be able to vote only once per game.

Additionally, Riot also added a new visual indicator that will more precisely tell players if they have lost or gained a significant amount of rank points. VALORANT community is happy to know that Riot has made some positive changes to the ranked mode based on their feedback.
