Riot has decided to upgrade to Unreal Engine 4.26 for the latest patch. This means that the dev team have more told to work with at a better quality too. We should expect to see better-looking assets and agents in this patch with the new engine.

Patch 5.03 changes

This newest valorant patch will see Chamber getting a nerf. A sigh of relief can be heard amongst the whole community. This agent has been causing issues for many players due to the strength he possesses. Additionally, we're hoping that this nerf will bring him back down to earth for a bit.

Neon is receiving both buffs and a nerf. However, Neon fans are hyper-focussing on the nerf. This is probably because it's nerfing the singular strongest ability in the game, her ultimate.

In comparison, Jett is receiving only a tiny nerf which hardly affects her kit. She was one of the luckier agents.

There are other leaked changes coming in this patch too. You can read about them here in the patch 5.03 details for Valorant.
