Valorant Episode 4.0 patch notes — Weapon changes

With the devs feeling as though melee was “too tricky to aim with,” both right and left melee attacks have been updated in 4.0.

The Spectre has been nerfed to bring it more in line with other weapons, since it was viewed to be a little too powerful in both long-range and close-range battle.

  • Vertical and horizontal recoil multipliers when running, jumping or on ascender have increased from 1.25 to 1.5
  • Protected bullet count from yaw (horizontal) switching while spraying has been decreased from 8 to 5 bullets
  • Time to switch yaw lowered from 0.24 seconds to 0.18 seconds
  • Valorant Episode 4.0 patch notes — Map changes

    A couple of small changes have been made to Bind, but the biggest overhaul has taken place in Breeze, where a number of areas have been adjusted to better balance the attacker/defender dynamic.

    While this is just the top line of a long list of changes in Valorant 4.0, you can check out the exhaustive list at playvalorant.com.
