New Features & Changes in Valorant Episode 7 Act 3
The new Episode 7 Act 3 comes with a lot of new content. This includes a new duelist ISO, new bundles, and some major changes to the premier mode in Valorant. Let us have a look at all the upcoming features and changes in the Valorant Act 3 update.
1. New Agent ISO
The new act comes with a new agent as Riot Games promised during the VCT 2023. ISO, the new duelist in the agent pool will add his gun blazing action to the game on October 31, 2023 update. With tons of aggressive abilities, Valorant’s new agent ISO can be the spark for the success of the Episode 7 Act 3 update.
2. Agent & Weapons Changes
Alongside adding a new agent to the pool, Riot Games has decided to balance agents and weapons in this update. The agents who will get drastic changes include Cypher, Raze, Skye, and Fade. These changes can change the course of their pick rate in the new rank season. The popular Judge shotgun is also getting nerfed with Episode 7 Act 3. So, make sure you use Judge before the new update is here.
3. New Battle Pass and Bundle
Like every act, a new battle pass comes with the Episode 7 Act 3 update on October 31. For just 1000 VP, you can get a bundle that feels like a lighter version of Oni in Libretto and a decent Silhouette bundle. Along with these, you will get several new player cards and sprays. You’ll also get weapon skins for Frenzy, Ghost, Stinger, Ares, Bulldog, Guardian, Judge, and Operator.
Apart from the two bundles, you get one amazing melee weapon skin and a free sheriff on the last page of the battle pass. Pretty much every weapon in your inventory will get a fresh look.
4. Valiant Hero Skin Bundle
Along with a new battlepass, the new act comes with a bunch of new cosmetics including a new skin bundle that is inspired by the Chinese legend Monkey King. This bundle will cost around 7100 VP and includes the following weapons:
- Ruyi Staff (dual-handed melee): 4,350 VP
- Ares: 1,775 VP
- Operator: 1,775 VP
- Ghost: 1,775 VP
- Vandal: 1,775 VP
