Valorant patch 4.07 is here, accompanied by new Latin American servers, store changes, and adjustments to the Bulldog, Stinger, and ability-based weapons.

As Riot continue to churn out gameplay-based updates during Valorant Episode 4 Act 2, there’s a whole collection of changes accompanying patch 4.07.

First and foremost, a host of new servers have been added to the Latin American region to help curb issues with latency. Secondly, in-store delays when purchasing VP mean that you’ll be able to splash the cash faster than ever before on those highly coveted skins (although, we’re not sure if our wallet thinks that’s a good thing).

Finally, some changes to the Bulldog, Stinger, and any ability-based weapons. With some changes to the ADS on both guns, as well as a different input queue for Chamber’s guns and Jett, Neon, and Raze’s ults, these little changes will make all the difference in-game.

Valorant patch 4.07: Weapons & ability changes

Coming into 4.07, the Bulldog and Stinger will have a slight delay when raising and lowering the weapon to ADS. This means that you’ll no longer be able to capitalize on the burst mode’s accuracy improvements before your weapon is raised.

Additionally, weapon abilities (such as Raze’s Showstopper or Jett’s Blade Storm) can now be queued to occur after the action that your character is already performing. So, if you’re popping heads with Jett on the Vandal, you’ll need to wait until your final shot goes off before your Blade Storm activates.
