The concluding Act of Episode 6 and the Valorant 6.08 patch notes are here, and there are lots of new features for you to try out. To learn everything there is to know about Riot’s tactical shooter’s most recent patch, keep reading.

The reintroduction of an improved Bind map to unrated and competitive matchmaking in the game is one of the most thrilling improvements in Valorant Episode 6 Act 3, which is currently live. The Radiant Entertainment System, a new Ultra-rated skin series, and a brand-new Battle Pass are both included with Act update 6.08, as they are with all Act updates in Valorant.

Along with the makeover, Valorant’s version 6.08 also saw the debut of Premier, a brand-new competitive game mode. Additionally, Killjoy and Gekko have undergone significant alterations that will affect the game’s meta.

Having said that, let’s explore all the new features and adjustments in-game version 6.08.

Valorant 6.08 patch: Killjoy buffs and Premier’s release

All the customary additions that come with each Act update are included in the mighty patch 6.08 of the game. However, the update contains a number of aspects that will significantly affect both the community and the game. Riot has taken a giant step toward giving amateur players a way into the professional ecosystem by releasing Premier’s first Open Beta along with the update.

In addition, the update includes significant enhancements for Gekko’s in-game soundtrack as well as buffs for Killjoy. It will be fascinating to watch how these adjustments impact the in-game meta given this is the first time in a while that an existing Agent has either been buffed or nerfed.

Here are the complete Valorant 6.08 patch notes
