Complete Information Update Valorant patch 2.03

The Valorant update patch 2.03 has arrived as of September 17, 2022. With the introduction of the official patch notes, Riot brings some significant changes to the weapon meta.

Frenzy and Stinger will cost a little more this time. Although this would only be a band-aid aid to the “Run and Gun” exploits these weapons boast.

The Marshalls will also be made cheaper and will be made much more feasible in the early game when players are often hesitant to buy this armor.

Some champions will also get some changes this time. Reyna will receive some balance updates, which may seem like a nerf.

Yoru, Brimstone, and Phoenix will get some adjustments. The following is a brief overview of the update Valorant patch notes 2.03
