VALORANT 7.10 patch notes are out. Along with it, Deadlock is receiving a big buff. The other changes remain somewhat insignificant.

Riot Games releases regular updates to keep the game fresh and bug-free. So, every 2 weeks or so, VALORANT receives minor to major updates that improve the game.

VALORANT has already received several patches as of Episode 7, and more will be added before the season ends. Riot’s most recent patch, as of this writing, is 7.10. In this patch, the developer mainly focused on Deadlock, as they made some good improvements compared to its previous state.

Jett, on the other hand, received some minor changes. However, you can’t call it a buff or a nerf. In the Team Deathmatch mode, however, Reyna and Fade were given some changes. Reyna received a notable nerf, whereas Fade got a good buff.

Apart from these, there are no other significant changes in the update. So, without further ado, here are the detailed patch notes for the VALORANT 7.10 update.
