Valorant update 3.01 patch notes fix up leveling issues & other bugs

With the latest Valorant patch notes out, players should see bug fixes on both various characters and systems in the game, such as Account Level.


The latest update to Valorant has arrived quickly and suitably, it’s a short one. After launching update 3.0 a couple weeks ago, rebalancing all Agents, and more, this particular patch is pretty much aimed at stomping and squashing a few bugs that have come about in Valorant as a result. That includes some quirky bugs on a few Agents and some issues going on with system messages (or players impersonating them) and Account Level issues. You’ll find the full patch notes for Valorant update 3.01 just below.
