Valorant 3.05 Patch Notes:

  • Map Updates
    • New Map: Fracture
  • Competitive Updates
    • Immortal 1/2/3 rank tiers will be back with update 3.05. The Leaderboard will update to distinguish between tiers
    • Updated Ranked grouping restrictions:
      • Diamond 1 → Immortal 1
      • Diamond 2 → Immortal 2
      • Diamond 3 → Immortal 3
    • Fracture only queue will be available for two weeks, later will it be added to competitive and other modes.
  • Battlepass Bonus XP
    • Upgrading to the Premium Battlepass will grant a 3% XP boost toward Battlepass tier progression for all matchmade games until the end of Act II. We believe the Battlepass experience is at its best when you're able to earn hype rewards as you unlock tiers, hitting major milestones and feeling good about what you've earned

      • NVIDIA Reflex is used to reduce and measure rendering latency. This update should allow Reflex to better pace frames by adding present markers as well as fixes on some older markers

Patch Release Date, Time in India

Riot Games confirmed that Valorant Episode 3, Act 2 will be released on September 8, 2021 in United States. Originally, this update was supposed to debut in August but was pushed back by the developers in mid-August.


As of now, a specific start time for the update has not been shared by Riot Games. The update is expected to enroll in Asia by September 9 mid night because of difference in the Time Zones.

Riot Games are expected to share an update on what is being planned this week in the coming hours.

Patch 3.05 to be used in VCT 3 Masters Berlin?

The patch may be delayed for Europe to tackle any issues found post release in the United States, so the patch maybe releasing on September 9 in Europe too.

September 9, Thursday, is also the date when VCT Masters Berlin commences, so it's most unlikely that it will be played on New Patch.
