Two nice fixes are planned by the Valorant development team – valorant variant choice and repeating maps: a fix is being developed to stop you having to play the same map again and again and again… and you’ll also now be able to pick the variant of the weapon skin you specifically want, rather than having to unlock them all.
For the variant change you will still have to have fully unlocked the other stages of the he skin, e.g. VFX, finisher, but after this you’ll be able to unlock the specific variant you want instead of having to go through them all. The latest we have on this is that while release was planned for patch 1.09, there has been some sort of delay and it is now expected to come out with patch 1.10.
Regarding having to play the same map again and again, Valorant’s Ziegler has confirmed that the dev team is now working on a fix for this issue, though they’ve not given specifics on how exactly this will work or when we can expect to see it released. Finally…
For everyone having a rough night where you get the same map too many times in a row: We're working on a solution to make the map selector less likely to RNG you into the same map over and over.— Ziegler (@RiotZiegler) September 10, 2020
