About the Valorant Patch Update 4.07 in EP 4 Act 2

As you all know, the Stage 1 Masters for the Valorant Champions Tour is currently being held in Reyjkavik. The changes made in this update are not very substantial, hence it won’t affect the tournament mid-way. As for the additions and changes made, here are them in categories:

Introduction of a new Server

The long-awaited server addition was finally made with this update. A brand new server for Latin America (LATAM) has been set up, which should provide optimal latency and solve ping issues for the affected players of that region. It is great that the Valorant developers care about latency issues in their game, thus making solutions to keep the game fair for everyone.

Weapon Changes

Two major weapon changes were made in Valorant to keep the gun-play balanced. The changes were made to the two burst weapons available in the game, namely the Bulldog and the Stinger. The changes were specific to their firing input delay while aiming down the sight [ADS].

  • Players will no longer get the burst mode accuracy advantage without finishing raising the weapon first

This will cost players the accuracy and punish players when switching between firing modes in between combat. The firing input delay for automatic, un-scoped (hip fire) mode still remains the same.

The ability-based weapons like Chamber’s guns, Jett, Raze, and Neon’s ultimate will now be input-queued to equip after finishing the current action.

Other Game Bugs

If we give an overview of the entire Valorant patch update 4.07, we can see that it has been a minor one. However, the few changes that came, in addition, were important to know about as subtle changes can affect the game altogether.
