Valorant patch 2.05 is here, and it’s all about AFK detection and improving the penalties for those caught breaking the rules.
Valorant players have always been pressuring Riot to implement some much needed changes to their AFK penalty system. While patch 2.03 laid the foundations for a better AFK punishment system, update 2.05 is clamping down on misbehaving players.
Additionally, those that dodge competitive games will also receive a small Rank Rating penalty for bailing out on their teammates.
Finally, adjustments have been made to Sova’s Owl Drone and Astra’s flying mechanic when she’s in Astral Form. Unique keybinds for each ability can now be set in the Options menu.
