Valorant patch 5.05 notes: you can’t report yourself anymore

Valorant patch 5.05 is pretty slim owing to the current VCT Champions tournament, but it turns out you can no longer report yourself in Riot's FPS game

Valorant patch 5.05 is relatively slim in terms of content, but it turns out there was a glitch in Riot’s flagship FPS game that allowed you to report yourself. For those who are looking to punish themselves for poor plays, your luck has run out, as this bizarre bug has been fixed.

With Valorant Episode 5 Act 2 kicking off with no new Agent or map, it’s clear Riot Games are very much focusing on making sure the game is at its best – especially with VCT Champions well underway.

If you’ve stopped swooning over the all-new VCT Champions Phantom skin and all of the Valorant Episode 5 Act 2 battle pass rewards, you’ll probably be looking forward to patch 5.05. While there’s no huge updates, there’s a whole plethora of bug fixes to both the game’s core system and the social side of things.

The standout (a.k.a, the one that made us laugh the most) was an issue that was allowing players to report themselves. We’ve all had bad games, sure, but the fact that this issue has been patched implies that a lot of self-deprecating players have been making use of it. The feature is no more my bottom fragging friends; instead we’ll just have to ‘get gud.’
