While the main attraction of VALORANT's Episode 5 Act 2 release will come in the form of a new Battlepass, and a competitive reset, there are still some gems to find in the relatively small print of the update.


Here's a full list of the VALORANT patch notes that are coming to the game with patch 5.04:

Game Changes

  • Players can now select a custom colour for their VALORANT crosshair
    • This is done by heading to Settings, Crosshair, Primary, Aim Down Sights, or Sniper Scope
    • Then, select 'Custom' in the colour drop down menu, and input the Hex Code of the desired crosshair colour to change it
    • Entering a non-Hex Code colour will revert to the previous change
  • Players can now uniquely tune the horizontal and vertical lines of their crosshair
    • This is done by heading to Settings, Crosshair, Primary or Aim Down Sights, Inner/Outer Length
    • Then, disable the middle 'chain' icon to enable independent tuning, using the left slider for horizontal, and the right for vertical.
  • Players can now copy the crosshair of players they are spectating
    • This is done by typing either '/crosshair copy' or '/cc', which will save the viewed crosshair as a under a new crosshair profile
  • Increased the number of available crosshair profiles from 10 to 15

Bug Fixes

  • Yoru's Gatecrash will no longer leave floor markers in incorrect locations
