Valorant episode 6 just released. But, now a smaller update has had the patch notes revealed.

This smaller update won't bring too much new content to the game as it's just released after episode 6.

However, Riot Games have utilised this patch to fix up some smaller issues that appeared with the new episode.

With the reception to Lotus being fairly positive, there are only some small changes to the mechanics.

However, there are also some general bug fixes to ensure that players can play the game well.

So, let's look at the full patch notes for patch 6.01 of Valorant and what changes it will bring.

Valorant Bug Fixes

Gameplay Systems

  • Fixed a bug where occasionally the third-person flashed visual indicator on an Agent’s head wasn’t in sync with the actual flash duration. (i.e. Omen’s Paranoia [Q], Phoenix’s Curveball [Q]).
  • Fixed a bug where the Spike would be invisible and attempting to equip the Spike would fail after changing from Defender to Attacker in a Custom Game and picking up the Spike.
  • Fixed a bug where you were unable to plant the Spike after reconnecting to a match where they died while disconnected.
  • Fixed a bug that, while using the Marshall, prevented full reloading between shots if auto-scoping is enabled.

Thanks for all the reports on this!
