Valorant Patch Notes 5.12: Know Updates in Agent, Weapons and Many more

Riot Games to Begin Further Advanced Crack down on Valorant Smurfers

Valorant Patch notes 5.12, the final patch of the year, has been made public by Riot Games. It is a significant upgrade that will affect practically every agent on the roster. Not only are the poorest Valorant agents being buffed while the finest ones are being nerfed in version 5.12, but there is also an emphasis on shaking up the ability meta in preparation for Episode 6 in January. The ability economy has undergone significant modification thanks to Riot, and the way that gadgets are damaged has also changed. Valorant Patch Notes 5.12

Riot has increased the point costs of the Agent Ultimates that have large, site-wide footprints. These changes should reduce their overall frequency and increase counterplay against them at the strategic level. In addition to the Ult adjustments, they also made a tuning pass on Agent ability economy. The areas targeted in this pass include: Total loadout cost outliers (for their respective role), Agents with a lack of pistol round buy options, and unintended power relative to the cost of the ability.

Weapon update

A significant nerf to the Spectre weapon is another non-agent update. A new damage range has been added for rounds fired from 30 metres or farther since the SMG was a little too potent at long range. Previously, shots beyond 20 metres would deal 22 damage, but now they deal 22 damage between 15 and 30 metres, and anything beyond that will deal 20 damage.


The most significant overall modifications involve the destruction of destructible items. Now, pretty much any ability that deals damage in an AoE, like Incendiary from Brimstone and Snakebite from Viper, will harm an enemy’s utility. Some goods have had their HP rebalanced so that they can still be destroyed by one bullet but will last a little longer if they are nicked by fire. This was done in an effort to prevent making some utility that is one shotted completely useless.
