Valorant Update 3.08 adds option to revert Upgraded Weapon Skins

Well, have you always been eager to have skins in Valorant? Or better yet, have you ever asked for more freedom in their customization? Well, it appears that Riot Games has heard the public and announced that patch 3.08 will be released today in the US, while the EU will follow up shortly (tomorrow, October 20). With that said, let’s take a look at all of the surprises coming to the game.

This week’s Valorant update, patch 3.08, will be released later today. While it doesn’t seem like a significant update,  there are still some notable changes. For example, players now have the option of equipping whichever skin tier they want instead of being forced to keep up with what’s been upgraded from within their arsenal.

But it’s not as simple as the update provides a couple of bug fixes, profession, store changes, and will also add a new Esports Feature that will allow Coaching ability to swap between players. There’s a little secret as well that obscures the Karambit knife that would allow players to switch between its animations.

For the complete list of patch notes, make sure you read the list below:

That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S.
