Now, we will soon get the Valorant 5.07 update, however, prior to the official reveal we have new info about the upcoming changes in the game. The new data has come from the PBE server of Valorant, where the latest update has been shared before the official release mainly to bug test.

Agent flash adjustments are the main topic of the 5.07 PBE Patch Notes. To make the Skye and KAY/O flash better suited for team plays, Riot is making some significant adjustments to them. A progression update and graphic flash changes are also being made by Riot in addition to these significant upgrades. In the 5.07 PBE, a collection filter option is also evaluated.

The complete VALORANT 5.07 PBE Notes can be found below.

Valorant 5.07 Patch - Agent changes

The VALORANT character design team is constantly discussing the state of the Agent meta, and wanted to make some changes to sharpen some of our Agents and role definitions. We’re in a more stable state since Champions, and Game Changers teams will have decent time to acclimate before the Game Changers World Championships takes place.

When it comes to Duelists with a flash ability, many of them have been outclassed by some of our Initiators when it comes to generating kills for themselves off their flashes. Skye and KAY/O are often better at taking aggressive 1v1s than Agents that we expect to be able to thrive in those scenarios like Yoru, Phoenix, or Reyna.

These changes are intended to increase the total teamplay output of Skye and KAY/O when they coordinate plays with their teammates, and decrease some of their efficacy when played alone. We also hope to increase the reward for putting more time into mastering their flash abilities. We believe that Initiators should still be able to make solo plays, but they should ideally be weaker than their Duelist counterparts in these scenarios*. —Dan “penguin” Hardison, Designer*.

Valorant 5.07 Patch - INITIATORS:

  • SKYE

Guiding Light’s destructibility didn’t feel like meaningful counterplay, instead overtly punishing when Skye tried to throw them at a longer range. By increasing the top-end output and rewarding Skye for bending her birds into the right spots, we intend to foster more teamwork and differentiate her Guiding Light from other flashes in the game—especially when compared to Duelists.

  • Guiding Light (E) flashbang scaling paradigm changed
    • The max flash duration of Skye's Guiding Light now scales from 1.25s to 2.25s over a .75s charge up after being cast
    • Guiding Light can no longer be shot and destroyed
    • New VFX, UI, and sounds added to communicate new gameplay intent
    • [Not in PBE] Unequip Delay out of Guiding Light increased .75s >>> .85s
  • KAY/O

KAY/O’s underhanded FLASH/DRIVE (left-click) has been overperforming relative to other “pop” flashes (example, Phoenix's flash or Yoru’s flash). And we feel as though labbed-out left overhand throws aren’t generating a powerful enough reward for the mastery required to get them to pop in the right place. This tuning weakens the right-click when compared to pop flashes from Duelists, with the belief that KAY/O should pay a cost for his versatility.

    • Underhand (right-click) flashbang max duration decreased 2s>>>1.25s
    • Overhand (left-click) flashbang max duration increased 2s>>>2.25s
    • [Not in PBE] Unequip Delay out of both flashes decreased .6s >>> .85s

Valorant 5.07 Patch - DUELISTS:


Reyna’s flash underperforms as a selfish entry-tool, especially at higher skill levels. This set of changes is intended to give Reyna more agency around how she decides to peek after casting Leer. Also, it should sharpen Leer as a powerful angle-breaking tool against Operators on maps with longer sightlines.

We’ve also felt like individual casts of the eye remain in the world for too long when the eye isn’t destroyed. If Reyna is now able to make more selfish plays off her Leer, we then wanted to reduce some of the value it has when thrown for teammates.

  • Leer
    • Wind-up of nearsight effect increased .6s >>> .4s
    • Range Restriction on Leer removed
    • Nearsight unequip delay decreased: .7 >>> .5
    • Nearsight unequip delay set to “Instant”
    • Duration decreased 2.6s >>> 2.0s
  • YORU

Yoru is a tricky agent, as we need to balance him around his capability to throw flashes during his ultimate. We opted to go with a simple duration increase for Blindside as we feel the turning counterplay around his flash and clone is important to avoid excessively frustrating situations.

  • BLINDSIDE (Q) duration increased 1.5s >>>1.75s

Valorant 5.07 Patch - Flash Visual Updates

    • 3P visuals for flashed enemies and allies now render behind the player’s head the moment that the flash starts to fade. This should give a clearer indication if players are fully flashed or if the flash has started to fade.
    • 1P visuals when fully flashed now shrink over time to give a better indication of when the full flash will end and the flash fading out will begin.
    • Increased the window for awarding assists on flashes, near sights, and concusses from 1 >>> 3 seconds after the debuff starts to fade.
      • Context: We felt the assist window on these debuffs didn’t reflect their actual duration of impact, and want to make sure the supportive players are more often recognized and rewarded for setting up situations their teammates capitalize on.
  • Reduced the size of the hologram on the body marker that shows up when dead bodies are turned off.

Valorant 5.07 Patch - Agent Bug Fixes

  • Fixed issue where KAY/O’s NULL/CMD disabled Killjoy’s Turret if the turret is hit by a pulse but Killjoy is not
  • Fixed issue where Killjoy’s Turret fires straight forward after firing at an enemy and then losing sight of them
  • Fixed issue where Killjoy’s Turret would fire with no target when coming online if it was disabled while firing at a target
  • Fixed a bug where Phoenix would not automatically re-equip a weapon at the end of Run It Back
  • Fixed Breach’s Rolling Thunder showing dead enemies hit in the combat report
  • Fixed issue where if a player was deafened by multiple sources when the first deafen ended it removed the deafening effect completely.

Valorant 5.07 patch - Progression Updates

  • Favorites & Filters
    • Added the ability to favorite gun skins, Player cards, Sprays, Gun Buddies and level borders (favorites persist until un-favorited)
    • Added the ability to filter your collection (filters persist until next login)
      • Gun skins: Owned/Unowned, Favorites/Non-Favorites, Tiers (Select, Deluxe, Premium, Ultra, Exclusive)
      • All others: Owned/Unowned, Favorites/Non-Favorites
  • Random Favorites
    • In addition to being able to sort through your weapon collection and set your favorite weapons, you can now equip the Random Favorite for every weapon type. This will make it so that each game you play, you get one of your favorite weapons (along with one of the variants that you own) at random each time you enter a match.

Not only Valorant patch 5.07, but we also got info on the next Valorant PBE patches. It has been revealed that PBE invite frequency has changed. Instead of a singular invite wave going out to a small number of eligible players once every PBE patch, it will now be once every OTHER PBE patch.

This started with the 4.10 patch, and it is expected the next invite wave/chance to join is on October 14.

However, it was additionally mentioned that this PBE schedule is subject to change depending on what type of patch is going out and it is not completely set in stone.

The PBE is still going on. There have been no new changes to the Patch Notes 5.07 PBE as of yet. We'll update you as soon as we learn of any changes to the upcoming Patch Notes 5.07 PBE.

Obviously, these changes seem interesting, hence, those who are early waiting to see the Valorant agent abilities changes, bug fixes, and more should keep their eyes on the official announcement as Valorant patch 5.07 is set to release soon.
