Valorant Patch 6.07 Update: Bind is back, AFK penalty Toughens

Patch 6.07 for Valorant brought back the Bind map sooner than expected, surprising players. The update also included changes to penalties for players who avoid queues and go AFK during matches. Additionally, the patch made adjustments to the UI Indicators for some Agents to improve the overall gameplay balance.

The recent patch update has also made some noteworthy modifications to the penalty system for queue dodging. In response to high AFK rates and queue dodging, a one-day ranked limitation has been added for excessive AFK behavior, while the penalty for repeatedly skipping the ranked queue has been increased.

Skipping multiple matches in a row now results in higher rating losses. The changes aim to address the majority of AFK cases, particularly in ranked and normal lobbies.


In an effort to consolidate and make consistent our use of UI indicators throughout our roster, we’ve updated some abilities to have or not have UI indicators.

  • Reyna
    • Yellow indicator removed from Leer (C)
  • KAY/O
    • Critical danger indicator added to FRAG/ment (C)
  • Skye
    • Yellow indicator removed from Seekers (X)
  • Killjoy
    • Yellow indicator removed from Alarmbot (E)
  • Chamber
    • Yellow indicator removed from Trademark (C)


  • Sova’s Recon Bolt (E) has been updated to correctly appear when playing with Bloom (graphical effect that makes things brighter) turned off.
  • Sova’s Recon Bolt (E) scanning VFX has been updated to be more visible as it travels through the world.
  • Sova’s Recon Bolt (E) model has been increased in size to more accurately represent its hitbox. This will not affect lineups. The collision as it travels is unchanged.



  • We have made improvements to our intervention system for violations when it comes to player participation.
    • We’re increasing the amount of Ranked Rating loss for repeated ranked queue dodging
    • We’re introducing a 1 day-ranked restriction for people who frequently take part in excessive AFK behavior, sooner than previously introduced ranked restrictions
