Valorant Update 4.02 Addresses Performance and Bug Issues

The update improves the afk detection system

Valorant patch 4.0.2 will arrive soon, and it will have the power to fix a couple of known issues. The patch introduces a better standing to the game’s performance, while it also fixes a couple of bugs. Nevertheless, its contents prove it to be a minor game update, so there’s not much to talk about.

On its social side, the update will buff the AFK detection, which means if players knew a way to alleviate its mechanics, they will no longer be able to. The detections for the AFK system have been updated, which should catch non-participatory behavior more often.

For the complete patch notes, make sure you check below.

Valorant 4.0.2 Patch Notes


  • Improved latency for Windowed Fullscreen mode to match closer to Fullscreen Exclusive
    • These improvements should play well with in-game overlays, however, having another program’s window on top of your gameplay window will negate these benefits.
    •  Thanks to @MyNameIsMJP and @SheriefFYI for helping us diagnose this issue!


  • AFK detection buff
    • Updated detections for non-participatory behavior in game
  • Agent-select reporting
    • Looks like there’s been some confusion around Agent-select reporting. Remember, you can right click players in pre-game and report them if they’re being disruptive!



  • Fixed a bug where the pulsing FX around the Spectrum Z logo were appearing next to the trigger during second inspect animation on the Bulldog.


  • Fixed issue where Killjoy’s Alarmbot and Turret were unretrievable after being resurrected by Sage.



  • Projectile Follow currently bugs out for Observer Followers
    • We’re working on a fix, but this one missed 4.02. We appreciate your patience!

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. 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. Currently stuck in WoW with high M+ keys, Tarkov, a bit of Gray Zone Warfare, Dota 2, and CS2. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC. If you need anything, feel free to contact me on X!
