Every time Riot Games releases a new act, anticipation for a new agent, buffs & nerfs, and the new battle pass is high among fans. While Act 2 was disappointing with minimal changes, we did get a new Premier mode and a new sunset card in Valorant. That said, Valorant’s Episode 7 Act 3 looks promising with a brand new duelist, a new battle pass, a new Monkey King-inspired bundle, new premier mode updates, and plenty of agent changes. So, check out the Valorant Episode 7 Act 3 release date here.
Valorants Episode 7 Act 2 ends on October 30, 2023. After the act ends, there will be a maintenance update that will make your game unplayable. The maintenance takes approximately 2 hours.

New features and 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 big changes to the first mode in Valorant. Let’s take 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 its gun action to the game on the October 31, 2023 update. With numerous aggressive skills, Valorant’s new agent ISO could be the spark for the success of the Episode 7 Act 3 update.
2. Agent and weapon changes
In addition to adding a new agent to the pool, Riot Games has decided to balance agents and weapons in this update. The agents that will see drastic changes include Cypher, Raze, Skye, and Fade. These changes could alter the trajectory of their pick percentage in the new ranking season. The popular Judge shotgun will also be subverted in Episode 7 Act 3, so make sure you get your hands on Judge before the new update arrives.
3. New Battle Pass and Bundle
Like every act, a new battle pass will ship on October 31st with the Episode 7 Act 3 update. For just 1000 VP you can get a bundle that feels like a lighter version of Oni in Libretto and a decent Silhouette bundle. You will also receive several new player cards and sprays. You also get weapon skins for Frenzy, Ghost, Stinger, Ares, Bulldog, Guardian, Judge and Operator.
In addition to the two bundles, you get one awesome melee weapon skin and a free sheriff on the last page of the battle pass. Almost every weapon in your inventory gets a fresh look.
4. Valiant Hero Skin Bundle
Along with a new battle pass, the new act comes with a bunch of new cosmetics, including a new skin bundle inspired by the Chinese legend Monkey King. This bundle costs approximately 7100 VP and includes the following weapons:
- Ruyi Staff (two-handed melee): 4,350 VP
- Ares: 1,775 VP
- Operator: 1,775 VP
- Ghost: 1,775 VP
- Vandal: 1,775 VP
