VALORANT Patch 3.02: Full notes and updates

Riot Games is set to introduce Patch 3.02 to VALORANT today. It isn’t a major update, but the devs have fixed some bugs concerning Sage, KAY/O, and Raze.

Sage can no longer place her Barrier Orb between the pyramids on Breeze to create a “silver peek,” a very small gap created by sandwiching two things and creating an advantageous line of sight. As for KAY/O, the agent introduced in Patch 3.0, Riot has fixed the issue that was applying KAY/O’s textures to weapons when he’s re-stabilized during his ULT NULL/cmd(X). The devs also removed Raze’s ability to place Boombot through some walls.

Aside from game bugs, a number of social bugs have been addressed in Patch 3.02 as well. Riot fixed a bug where the team-voice volume sliders would always reset to 50, a bug where the scrollbar in the social panel would sometimes display incorrectly, and the pixelated border surrounding the unranked icon in the Hover Card UI, among other things.

The next time you play VALORANT, you’ll see the devs changed how clipping is calculated, which “should result in less clipping overall” during gameplay. You can read the full Patch 3.02 notes below.
