The Valorant 7.06 patch notes have been released! This is a relatively smaller patch following the flurry of agent changes introduced in the previous patches. The upcoming 7.06 update brings a series of minor adjustments to the overall health of the game, giving players some breathing room to adapt to the ever-evolving Valorant meta.

In order to counter the pervasive trend of rank boosting with bots and real players, Riot Games continues to implement new restrictions and updates on AFK and queue dodging in the upcoming patch.
