Valorant has just released the newest update to the game, along with the patch notes. This update is not a game-changing one, but there are a few important changes that will impact the way the game is played, especially when it comes to the bombsites and in post-plant situations for many maps. Here are the three biggest changes coming in Valorant Patch 3.03

3 Biggest Changes in Valorant Patch 3.03

1. Viper's Ultimate

Viper received what many thought to be a ghost buff in Patch 3.01 that turned out to be a bug. Her ultimate was able to be placed wherever her crosshair was aiming, allowing for longer distance placement of the ability. Now, it forms around her body, as it was intended to. This is more or less a nerf but really is a bug fix. It changes Viper's ultimate either way and makes it more stationary on her character.

2. Radianite Boxes

The biggest map-based change in the update was that the green Radianite boxes seen on most bombsites can now be wallbanged from all angles. So now if you know someone is tucked in a corner behind a Radianite box on bind or ascent they are able to be shot through them. This changes a lot of post-plant positions for a lot of maps, and completely negates some plant spots while making others more powerful.

3. Crosshair Customization

Valorant has now made crosshair settings much more customizable for the player, even allowing for different crosshairs when ADS and scoping in, which allows for more comfortability in every situation. Players are now able to save crosshair profiles and quickly switch between them, which is just much more convenient for players who often experiment with their settings. Firing error now has a minimum around all weapons in the game, and you can now use your primary crosshair on shotguns, which adds consistency to the game for many players.
