Riot Games has tweaked the price of almost every Agent and weapon in VALORANT for the upcoming Episode 3 release. 

The first Act of the latest Episode, which is set to release on Tuesday, June 22, will introduce a new cybernetic-themed Agent KAY/O and several changes to the VALORANT meta. 

The latest build displays changes to every Agent in VALORANT, excluding Killjoy. Some of the most popular Agents in the game, such as Jett and Raze, have been hit with substantial nerfs relating to the pricing of their abilities, for example. 

The changes have mostly increased the amount of credits it costs to purchase abilities. Several ultimates have increased in charges, also.

These patch notes are not official from Riot Games, but have been collected from the new VALORANT build.
