VALORANT v4.02 Patch Notes:

Performance Updates:

  • Improved latency for Windowed Fullscreen mode to match closer to Fullscreen Exclusive.
  • These improvements should play well with in-game overlays, however, having another program’s window on top of your gameplay window will negate these benefits.

Social Updates:

  • AFK detection buff
    • Updated detections for non-participatory behavior in game
  • Agent-select reporting
    • Looks like there’s been some confusion around Agent-select reporting. Remember, you can right click players in pre-game and report them if they’re being disruptive!

Bug Fixes:


  • Fixed a bug where the pulsing FX around the Spectrum Z logo were appearing next to the trigger during second inspect animation on the Bulldog.


  • Fixed issue where Killjoy’s Alarmbot and Turret were unretrievable after being resurrected by Sage.

Known Issues:

Esports Features:

  • Projectile Follow currently bugs out for Observer Followers
    • We’re working on a fix, but this one missed 4.02. We appreciate your patience!
