Riot Games has already teased us with all the changes they have in store for the upcoming VALORANT patch 4.09.

VALORANT Public Environment or more commonly known as VALORANT PBE is a game testing platform where a few selected players can test new contents that are in development by Riot Games.

Players can sign up for this PBE system by going to Valorant’s PBE webpage. However, players need to be from NA and have a very clean record without any prior bans or restrictions to become a part of it. Even after that, recruitment of the players for PBE is not guaranteed.

The eligible players for PBE get to experience what’s been cooking in the game. PBE players get to test many new upcoming features such as Agent’s abilities, map changes, bug fixes, and much more. Some of the tested features do not even make it into the officially released patches by Riot Games.

We have already received a glimpse of what to expect in the 4.09 patch, and it seems like, after the huge adjustments with Jett and Sova, Chamber will receive a noticeable nerf in the upcoming patch.

  • Trademark Charges reduced 2>>>1
  • Trademark Cost increased 150>>>200
  • Increased Trademark’s audio volume


  • Clutch Mute – 
  • Dev Notes: We’re testing the ability to mute your teammates so you can focus during clutch moments!
    • Go to Settings (Esc) > Controls > Communication
    • Set keybinds for Party and Team Voice Clutch Mute Keys
    • Press the keybind while in-game to Toggle “ON” the Party and/or Team Voice Clutch Mute and then again to Toggle “OFF”


  • Fixed an issue where Chamber’s Trademark was sometimes silent or quieter than intended
  • Fixed a bug where Jett’s Tailwind would sometimes fail to cast when used immediately after curving a Cloudburst smoke
  • Fixed a bug where Jett’s ultimate indicator would sometimes stay active after firing all kunai (you know, her daggers)

When will the PBE end?

With the upcoming Agent Fade and many other changes in mind, VALORANT started its first phase of PBE for the 4.09 patch on April 29, 2022. The PBE is still ongoing, and it is scheduled to close at 11 am PDT Monday, May. 2.

Will there be other changes?

The PBE is currently ongoing. As for now, there haven’t been new changes in the Patch Notes 4.09 PBE. As soon as we receive any changes regarding the upcoming Patch Notes 4.09 PBE, We will let you know.
