6 things to look forward to in version 4.0 of Valorant are about to be released on January 12.
Version 4.0 of Valorant is nearing the release date, a lot of things will land in this version. Let’s take a look at Game4v with 6 things worth looking forward to in this 4.0 update.
Skin line with inspiration from the movie “Terminator”
This skin line is called “Protocol 781-A”. With a post-apocalyptic design as well as the finishing effect of a laser aiming robot, this reminds us of the ‘Terminator’ movie series.
According to Riot Games, the theme of this skin line will be post-apocalyptic. Set in the future, when robots are gradually taking over the world and preparing to take over the entire Valorant universe. It is currently unknown if Protocol 781-A is related to the story of agent Kay/O, but the robots in the trailer have a lot in common with this robotic agent.
Protocol 781-A will be able to upgrade the effect similar to the Glitchpop skin line, with all 5 weapons in this bundle including: Melee, Sheriff, Specter, Bulldog, Phantom.
Launch of the 18th agent called Neon
The 18th agent, known as Neon, is a Duelist position agent. The launch of this agent is expected to “replace” the dominance of agent Jett at the moment. This agent’s skill set, has a few similarities with previous Duelist agents:
Q – Spark Tunnel (rough translation – electric wall): Neon will create an electric wall similar to Phoenix’s firewall. The remarkable point of this skill is that Spark Tunnel creates 2 walls instead of 1 and is uncontrollable like Phoenix’s
C – Stun/Concussion Nade (rough translation – stun bomb): After activating the skill, will give a stun bomb. This bomb can bounce off walls and explode after hitting the ground, similar to Kay/o’s. If an enemy is within the bomb’s detonation range, they will be stunned for a period of time, it is unknown whether they will take damage or not.
E – Sprint and Slide: Neon will sprint and when reactivated, this agent 18 will be able to slide an extra distance.
X – Special Skill: Upon activation, Neon will project an electric current at the enemy, dealing continuous damage.
Changing some important positions on the Breeze and Bind . maps
The Breeze map is said to be one of the unbalanced maps. Therefore, in the upcoming 4.0 version, there will be some important changes at Breeze.
The A-Site area, will add 1 to the obstacle as well as the item to the A-site will be smaller than in the A-main area. On the defensive side, the 3-barrel area will be changed to a Long Container and the water part of the A-site will be expanded.
B-Site Area: adding 2 obstacles inside the B-site gives defenders more hiding places.
Also, at Bind map A-Short area. Change 2 crates into 1 small container, and also add 1 wooden platform right in the attacker’s area. This change will make the public release less pressure to attack on A-site.
Weapon Parameter Change
Accordingly, there will be a few changes to the parameters of the weapons in the next version. The weapons that will be changed include: Melee, Specter, Ares, Guardian, Bulldog. Except for the Specter, which is nerfed, all other weapons are leveled up.
Melee: increased accuracy, increased damage as well as hitbox when attacking with the right mouse. Specter: increased recoil from 1.25 to 1.5, and the duration of the projectile changing while running while firing will be reduced from 0.24 to 0.18. Ares: removed the effect of increasing the rate of fire, increasing the Fire Rate from 10 to 13. Guardian: removed the effect of reducing the rate of fire while aiming, and also increased the accuracy of the first 2 bullets. Bulldog: hip-fire fire rate increased slightly from 9.5 to 10. Also, the delay between two burst shots decreased from 0.4 to 0.35.
Karambit first appeared in battlepass
In the upcoming Episode 4 Act 1, Valorant players will be brought to 3 new skin lines, which are considered “the best ever” with: Hydrodip, Schema and Velocity.
With Hydrodip and Schema there will be only 1 variant, while Velocity will have 3 variants in all. The most special feature is that in this battlepass Ep 4, the melee weapon that players will own is Velocity Karambit. It is not clear whether Karambit in this battlepass will have the same animations as Karambit in the “Champion” skin line, but it only costs a little bit to be able to own a “hot” melee weapon. that was a bargain.
Skill change on agent Yoru
Yoru changes are aimed to release during Patch 4.03 | #VALORANT

With a pick rate in the tournament of 0%. Agent Yoru will be relatively changed in terms of skills as well as gameplay. Accordingly, 3 skills that will be changed will be Fakeout, Gatecrash and Dimensional Drift.
Fakeout: Once activated, a clone of Yoru will appear running in the specified direction. When destroyed, this shadow clone will weaken nearby enemies. Gatecrash: The range where enemies can see and hear the skill’s sound has been reduced. In addition, Gate Crash’s movement speed has also been increased by 20%. Moreover, Yoru can fake the activation of this skill to deceive the opponent. Dimensional Drift: Although it has not yet been revealed how it will change, according to the Valorant developers, this will definitely be a huge potential change for Yoru.
