PATCH 5.06 Pearl Map Changes In VALORANT - Before and After Comparison!

Meta Description: Riot Games has released patch 5.06 for VALORANT, and along with it, some changes to the Pearl. Check out this article for the before and after comparison!

 

Riot Games has updated their latest map in Patch 5.06, Pearl, and made some quality of life changes all across the map.

 

These changes aren’t anything major or game-changing, but they still make the map more healthy and straightforward by removing small corners and spots that would cause inconvenience.

 

Spots where players could tuck themselves and hide have been more simplified, meaning there will be fewer angles to clear when taking control of those areas.

 

Here are all the changes made to Pearl:

 

 

Art

 

Before

 

 

After

 

 

The boxes in the area outside Art have been removed. This makes it convenient for Attackers to take space in this area because they don’t have to clear the annoying space behind the boxes anymore.

 

 

A Main

 

Before

 

 

After

 

 

The wall on the left side of A Main has been moved in closer slightly to make it easier to smoke off the ramp without leaving any spots.

 

Before

 

 

After

 

 

The cutout area in A Main has also been removed, removing a camping spot and making the wall a straight line.

 

 

Mid Shops

 

Before

 

 

After

 

 

The little corner on the entrance of Mid Shops has been removed. This change actually favors the defenders who are trying to lurk the Attackers from behind.

 

 

Top Mid

 

Before

 

 

After

 

 

The space on the left side on Top Mid has been removed by extruding the wall outwards. This once again removes an annoying corner where the Attackers could camp in.

 

 

B Main

 

Before

 

 

After

 

 

Perhaps the most annoying corner in B Main has been lowered, removing the ability to hide here. Now the Defenders can’t crawl up here at the start of the round and surprise you.

 

 

Mid Shops

 

Before

 

 

After

 

 

This spot has been extended, making the Mid Shops area much cleaner and simpler.

 

 

B Link Top

 

Before

 

 

After

 

 

The box on top of B Link has been shortened so now players can’t take cover or hide behind it anymore.

 

 

B Link Bottom

 

Before

 

 

After

 

 

The boxes on the left side in the lower area of B Link have been removed and shifted towards the right. Now instead of clearing two separate angles, you only have to clear one angle.
