Valorant Patch 6.08 details :



  • The audio cues for Wingman’s spike and defuse sound were unclear during hectic combat situations. This should help make those audio cues standout.

Nanoswarm (C)

  • Nanoswarm audio has been updated.
  • Nanoswarm reveal radius increased 350 >> 525
  • Improved feedback for the enemy when they destroy Nanoswarm.
  • Nanoswarm is now revealed when it is disabled.
  • Audio loop now also turns off when disabled as a result of Killjoy being killed or suppressed.

Other Abilities

  • Removed the yellow warning UI Indicator for enemy Killjoy’s Lockdown (X).
  • Updated visuals for Killjoy’s ultimate Lockdown (X) being destroyed.
  • Updated deactivate sounds for Killjoy’s Turret (E) and Alarmbot (Q) to make them more distinct.


Brimstone’s Sky Smoke (E), Orbital Strike (X), and Omen’s From the Shadows (X) ability have updated targeting visuals to help players with precision placement on the map.

Map Updates

  • The newly updated Bind rotates into Competitive and Unrated queues.
  • Icebox rotates out of Competitive and Unrated queues.

Known Issues
