Valorant 5.04 promised a lot of quality-of-life changes. Despite not a lot of balance changes after a jam-packed 5.03 update, players can still expect some decent stuff coming their way.

Thanks to the PBE patch we have a glimpse into what Valorant patch 5.04 has to offer. Most are great QoL stuff as we mentioned, with the game being upgraded to Unreal Engine 4.26.

With all that said, let's dive deep into what we can expect from patch 5.04.
