Valorant Patch Notes 3.08: Release Date, Download Size, Leaks, System Updates, Social, Bug Fixes and More

Here's everything you need to know about Valorant Patch 3.08

Following the big changes as part of Valorant Patch 3.07, Riot Games will be gearing up to introduce the latest patch in the next few weeks to the FPS title.

The hero-based first-person shooter has shot into eSports competitive gaming and has proven to be a fan-favourite despite having only been released last year.

Whereas games such as Fortnite and Apex Legends have had to bed themselves into the industry - Riot has not had to go through similar timeframes and have found success sooner than many would have expected.

Valorant Patch 3.07 brought more changes to Agents, with Jett and Viper getting small buffs following the controversial nerfs to Jett back in 3.06

Another big change that came with 3.07 was the announcement that Riot would be removing penalties for leaving Deathmatch early.
