Brimstone boosts, deathmatch spawn tweaks, and weapon upgrades are all part of the Valorant version 4.03 notes

With the release of Valorant patch 4.03, a flurry of changes to Brimstone’s ult, spawn location, and timers in Deathmatch, as well as several new weapon features, are now available. Checkout the complete article to know more.

Despite the fact that Riot Games kicked off Valorant Episode 4 with a bang, subsequent patches have been sparse and primarily focused on gameplay.

Patch 4.03 follows a same pattern, focusing on enhancing numerous areas of the Deathmatch game as well as providing Brimstone, the American Controller, with a few quality of life buffs to his iconic ultimate.

While Deathmatch is still a niche mode compared to Spike Rush and the standard and ranked playlists, Riot has given it some love.

Death times have been reduced from 3 seconds to 2.5 seconds, and new mechanisms will guarantee that you spawn further away from the location where you were killed. They’ll also make sure you don’t spawn in “hazardous” places that will almost certainly result in you being one-tapped right away.

Additionally, adjustments have been made so that you will revive facing attackers rather of being shot in the back.
