It’s April Fool’s Day, which means don’t trust anything you hear or read, especially on the internet. Riot Games has been pretty active this week with its tactical shooter – Valorant. The game has got a new patch 2.06 which, according to the patch notes, has introduced a bunch of new changes to the agents. Speaking of patch notes, Riot Games has released another patch notes blog post specifically for April Fool’s Day.

Before we dive into the patch notes, keep in mind that these are just for prank and April Fool’s Day and are not actually added in Valorant.

You can read the complete list of major changes for this patch below:
