The Valorant servers will temporarily be taken offline today, September 20, 2022, as Riot Games will be conducting a maintenance schedule for the upcoming 5.06 patch update.
The update is not expected to be big. Its two major highlights are the new ChronoVoid skin bundle and the multiple changes that will be making their way to Stinger.
As for Agent updates, Riot Games has previously mentioned that Cypher nerfs as well as Chamber and Fade buffs are on the horizon. However, it’s not exactly certain if the developers will be addressing these changes in 5.06.
According to the official Valorant Server Status page, the servers will be coming down across all regions temporarily. Players will not be able to log in to the shooter’s client for a couple of hours.
However, the maintenance schedule can last a bit longer than what is intended if the patch deployment encounters unforeseen hurdles. This could also happen if the servers start to act up with bugs and client errors when 5.06 officially goes live.

The bundle will be set at 8,700 VP (Valorant Points), while the individual gun cosmetics will cost 2175 VP. However, the A Quo melee weapon will be priced a bit higher than the rest, and it will go for 4350 VP.
Valorant’s ChronoVoid bundle is being praised by the community as something quite special. Players will definitely be looking to try out the skin line once it officially drops with 5.06.
