It's been a couple of weeks since we saw the release of patch 6.00, which brought to Valorant its newest map, Lotus, the return of a revamped Split, and much more.

With so many changes, Riot Games didn't want to make another massive overhaul with patch 6.01, instead focusing on a certain quality of life and bug fixes to help improve the overall experience for all Valorant players.

So let's get down to what patch 6.01 brings to Valorant.

Valorant Patch 6.01: Full Update



  • The volume for the rotating doors has been reduced while rotating. Please let us know what you think.
  • The Lotus-only queue has been removed.
  • Lotus will now be included in the map rotation for Unrated and Competitive.


  • Replication has been removed from Modes queue.



  • Killjoy’s Nanoswarm (C) will no longer deal more damage to destructible objects than intended.


  • Fixed a bug where occasionally the third-person flashed visual indicator on an Agent’s head wasn’t in sync with the actual flash duration. (i.e. Omen’s Paranoia [Q], Phoenix’s Curveball [Q]).

  • You can no longer get yourself stuck in the rotating doors (we're pretty sure anyway, let us know if you find a way—also, you’re all very creative!)
