Two weeks after the latest patch, Riot is releasing a new version of their popular shooter game. Update 8.10 for Valorant is rolling out and this will be a small patch since the following version is set to have bigger additions and adjustments.

If you're curious to know what's changing this time, we have gathered all the details so you can read them while you download the patch.

Release date

This update will have a release schedule different from the one we are used to. According to Jo-Ellen Aragon, Valorant's community manager, patch 8.10 is set to come out on Wednesday, May 29/ Thursday, May 30.

Before its release, servers will go down for maintenance to allow developers to make the necessary preparations. North America, LATAM, and Brazil servers will go down on Wednesday at 6:00 am PT and come back up at around 10:00 am PT, barring any issues.

European players will have to wait a little bit longer as their servers will go down at 4:00 am BST on Thursday, May 30, and should return at 8:00 am BST on that same day.

Patch notes

These are the complete patch notes for version 8.10 posted on Valorant's official website after it started to roll out globally:

Progression Updates

  • Basic Training Event
    • We are releasing an update to our Welcome Contract for new players! The new structure includes clearer missions and milestones to help you navigate the New Player Experience with a bit more guidance before your Ranked climb.
    • The Basic Training Event will appear similar to other Events, allowing you to view your progress, understand your goals at each milestone, and complete them to earn rewards to jumpstart your VALORANT experience.
    • If you have previously completed the Welcome Contract, you will not see the Basic Training Event (don’t worry, you have already earned all the same rewards!).
    • If you are partially complete with the Welcome Contract, your previously earned rewards will be reflected in the Basic Training Event when it comes online, and you will be able to proceed through Basic Training, earning XP toward your Battlepass.

Bug Fixes

  • Agent
    • Fixed an issue where shots fired immediately after exiting Cypher’s Spycam (E) would bypass the weapon’s raise animation and not deal damage. The weapon raise animation is now played for its full duration.
    • Fixed issues where the timer for Clove’s Pick-Me-Up (C) could be restarted which would allow Clove to have more time than intended to activate the ability.
