Riot Games is apparently working on a new feature called “Squad Boost” that will let players earn more experience points while they are queuing with their friends in VALORANT.

The way Riot Games dealt with progression at launch has been quite divisive in the VALORANT community since many players felt XP progression was really slow. As a result, many players were unable to unlock all the rewards that were available with the very first implementation of the battle pass.

Following feedback from the community, Riot Games slightly tuned the XP gain with each new iteration of the battle pass. As it stands now, the current version is acceptable for most players. Riot is currently working on a system that will incentivize players to queue with their friends more often.

Earn more XP

The squad boost feature will enable you to earn more XP when you play any game mode with a pre-made lobby. Those players who have difficulties unlocking every reward from the battle pass will be happy to know this feature could literally make the grind a lot easier.

The rate at which this system will give away XP is still not clear as of writing. We’ll update players with more information regarding this feature as soon as new information is revealed. Also, this is a leak from a data miner, so take it with a grain of salt.
