Valorant patch notes – update 7.03 gives you more ways to mute people

The latest round of Valorant patch notes are pretty slim, but the 7.03 update focuses on cracking down on toxic messages in chat, as well some store fixes.

The Valorant 7.03 patch notes have arrived, but thankfully they’re relatively slim and focus more on the FPS game‘s behind-the-scenes disciplinary systems. There are a few changes to the in-game store as well, but the highlight of this patch is that you can now mute toxic Valorant players in even more ways than before.

As Riot continues to crack down on toxic players, we’ve seen a few more updates to the mute system. Now, if someone has received a team text mute, you can mute their party messages, too, meaning you won’t have to deal with that one really, really competitive friend who just went 1/13/0.

In a more exciting change, though, when you unlock a cute little battle pass gun buddy or pick up a new skin bundle, you can now favorite them immediately from the confirmation screen to save you some back and forth. A similar thing now happens with sprays, only you’ll be able to zip straight over to the collections tab.

If you have a whole lot of Valorant skins in your rotation but are looking to pick up even more, we have a full rundown of when we expect the next Valorant Night Market to drop – hopefully you’ll be able to pick up something cool (all I want is the Soulstrife scythe, okay)?
