Valorant 8.04 patch notes

Mode updates

  • Added character portraits and minimap icons for Training Bots in the Range.

Premier updates

  • No more enrollment! You can make a team and start playing at any time in the Stage.
  • Provisional divisions are shown immediately upon team creation, update whenever the roster or Zone changes, and are locked in once your team plays your first match of the Stage.
  • Teams can change their Zone anytime before they play their first match of the Stage.
  • Weekly matches now have rematch protection, so you won’t face the same team twice in a Stage (unless you’ve been in the queue a long time).
  • You can only play 2 matches per week, so no jumping between teams as a free agent within the same week.
  • Standings show Playoff results once Playoffs start and lock in 48 hours after Playoffs end.

Esports features

  • As Kickoff concludes and teams secure their place at Masters Madrid, the Global Events tab of the Hub will unlock, letting you explore participating teams, schedules and the new format.
  • You can check out the Swiss Bracket page for Groups and watch teams qualify for the Playoffs.

Bug fixes


  • Fixed known cases where KAY/O's ZERO/point (E) would sometimes report inaccurate information. Please report any further instances.
  • Fixed a bug where if you were revived by Sage’s Resurrection (X), you would be nudged slightly at the end of the animation.
  • Fixed a bug where bullets could pass through the corners of Sage's Barrier Orb (C).

Esports features

  • Fixed a bug where the Esports Hub Schedule was not automatically taking you to the current day.
  • Fixed a visual bug in the Play In Groups Bracket that showed duplicate information

Gameplay systems

  • Fixed a bug with abilities extending past the minimap widget such as Killjoy’s Lockdown (X).


  • Fixed a bug where the start button wouldn’t update immediately if you’re in the lobby when an event starts.

Known issues


  • A team creation deadline is sometimes displayed on the Premier hub. There is no longer a deadline for team creation-feel free to create at any time in the state!
