The official patch notes for the VALORANT patch 5.05 is finally here, and it turns out it is yet another lighter patch while the VALORANT Champians 2022 is still ongoing.

VALORANT Patch 5.05 was always going to be a lighter one in nature, filled with mostly server stability and quality of life improvement-related features, which was foreshadowed by the 5.05 PBE patch notes that were revealed a while back.

As mentioned earlier, due to the VALORANT Champians 2022 still ongoing and attracting a massive audience worldwide, Riot Games is taking a slow approach while delivering meta-related changes, as that might hinder the competitive scene.

Instead, players will need to be content with small bug fixes until the VALORANT Champians 2022 is over. Expect massive meta-shifting changes to hit the PBE servers with future patches.
