Valorant 5.03 Patch Notes

Valorant Update 5.03 will tweak the Agent Chamber, Neon and Jett to balance their performance in the game. It will be interesting to see how these proxy changes affect in-game metadata.

In addition to that, the patch will see Valorant being updated to Unreal Engine 4.26. While the developers have confirmed that this update is causing some glitches in the main menu, they are committed to fixing these bugs as soon as possible.

Here’s a full rundown of everything Riot Games confirmed in the official patch notes for Valorant update 5.03.

General update

  • Unreal Engine 4.26 Engine Update
    • This update improves the toolset available to our developers in many ways, however, you probably won’t notice this change as any engine update is aimed under the radar.
    • There are some known issues this time though, mostly UI misbehaving. We’re working on fixing these as soon as possible, but expect some funky stuff in the game and in the main menu. If anything breaks your game, please file a bug report.
  • Proxy browser visual design refresh
    • Just thought we should take some cool agent art and incorporate more of our VALORANT style.
