Now that the start of Valorant Episode 5 Act III is officially here, complete with the return of the Ion skinline, a whole new Battlepass and a reset of ranks, Riot Games has released its 5.08 patch notes.

From the official introduction of Harbor to new regional Immortal leaderboard caps, here's a breakdown of the 5.08 patch notes for Valorant Episode 5 Act 3, per Riot.

Valorant Patch Notes 5.08: Full List

Agent Updates

  • Harbor goes live!

Competitive Updates

Riot is rolling out a cap to the amount of players that can appear on the leaderboard on a region-by-region basis.

  •  KR: 5k
  •  LATAM: 5k
  •  BR: 5k
  •  NA: 10k
  •  AP: 15k
  •  EU: 15k

This will not take away the achievement of reaching Immortal, but until you are in the top X amount of players, you will not appear on the leaderboard.

Riot Games



  • Fixed an issue where friendly versions of area-damage abilities could overwrite enemy versions of those abilities to deal less damage
  • Fixed a bug where Viper’s Toxic Screen could have small gaps around ground level in specific map locations


  • Fixed a bug where ally position indicators would persist on the edge of minimap even after ally came back into view
  • Fixed a bug where in some cases, KAY/O’s Suppression Blade position indicator could appear twice on the minimap
  • Fixed a bug where opening the larger map (defaulted to Caps Lock and ‘M’) during round transition could cause spawn barriers to appear as a single pixel
  • Fixed a bug where "Recently Seen Enemy" icon indicators could sometimes update their position without the enemy being visible


  • Fixed a sliver line of sight from A Main to A Link on Pearl
Riot Games


  • Fixed an issue where the Spectrum Phantom silencer extended further than intended and have now shaved off some length so that it matches the base Phantom weapon model
