Performance updates

  • Improved latency for Windowed Fullscreen mode to match closer to Fullscreen Exclusive
    • These improvements should play well with in-game overlays; however, having another program’s window on top of your gameplay window will negate these benefits.

Social updates

  • AFK detection buff
    • Updated detections for non-participatory behavior in-game
  • Agent-select reporting
    • Looks like there’s been some confusion around Agent-select reporting. Remember, you can right click players in pre-game and report them if they’re being disruptive!

  • Cosmetics
    •  Fixed a bug where the pulsing FX around the Spectrum Z logo were appearing next to the trigger during second inspect animation on the Bulldog.
  • Agents
    • Fixed issue where Killjoy’s Alarmbot and Turret were unretrievable after being resurrected by Sage.

Known Issues

  • Esports Features
    • Projectile Follow currently bugs out for Observer Follower
    • We’re working on a fix, but this one missed 4.02. We appreciate your patience!

So that's all you need to know about Valorant patch 4.02; enjoy the improved gameplay with all the improvements and updates introduced. This update has not introduced any new agent in the 4.02 update, and as announced by Riot Games, we will not be getting one in Act 2 too, and fans will have to wait till Episode 4 Act 3, for the next agent in the game.
