While it is coming not too long after the last set, the VALORANT 6.03 patch notes still bring forward changes that are hopefully welcomed by the community. We seem to get the odd big VALORANT update every once in a while, but it is great to see these regular smaller patches that help keep the balance stable.

So, carry on reading the rest of this guide below to see all of the changes arriving in the VALORANT 6.03 patch notes.

Here are all of the changes that are arriving in the latest VALORANT 6.03 patch notes:

Agent Changes


  • Turret (E) health decreased from 125 to 100.
    • Reducing the total health of the Turret will allow for opponents to have an easier time destroying it, particularly with weaker weapons.
  • Lockdown (X) point cost increased from 7 to 8.
    • We're happy with Killjoy's Ult being powerful when opponents don't have a plan to push or contest it, but feel the frequency is too high for the reliability it now offers.


  • Boom Bot (C) duration decreased from 10 seconds to 5 seconds.

Modes Changes


  • Remember when we told you the Swiftplay Beta would end in January. We sorta lied. Everyone decided to just keep it on. Please keep sending us your feedback, though!

Social Updates

  • Added Real Time Text Evaluation to the Agent Select screen. (NA only for the time being)

Bug Fixes

  • Adjusted Sage, Neon, Jett, and Yoru’s hair heights to fit within our standardised vertical range.

    ● AI (such as Skye’s Seekers [X]) will now travel through the crouch-only connection on Pearl near the Defender’s spawn area.

    ● Fixed a bug where KAY/O would sometimes be able to move after being downed during NULL/cmd (X).

While our VALORANT Valentine's gift to you will be a lovely set of patch notes, you can spend the special day with your favourite agent on the tropical banks of Lotus.

So, that's all we currently know about the soon-to-arrive VALORANT patch 6.03. Find out how to view your VALORANT match history here if you want to stay up to date with your performances.
