With the recent patch 2.09, Riot Games introduced a quality of life change to the headshot logo in Valorant’s kill feed.
The recent 2.09 patch introduced Replication, a new game mode, Viper nerfs, and Breeze updates. It also introduces two brand new weapon skin sets, the Tethered Realms Collection and the Minima Collection.
However, the headshot icon change has left fans confused and unsatisfied, demanding the change to be rolled back.

The crosshair icon, which was previously used to mark headshots only, is used to signify every kill, and another icon is used to mark headshots. The players were not pleased with the quality of life change and demanded an immediate revert back to the original.
Player are unhappy with the change to the headshot icon in the recent Valorant patch 2.09
Players were not at all amused by the change to the Valorant headshot icon. The change may seem minor, but it can create confusion during an intense match. Team Liquid’s Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom spoke up against the change, asking for an immediate change.
Even though Riot Games hasn’t officially addressed the issue, considering the developers always take player feedback into consideration and have open communication with the community, hopefully the headshot icon in Valorant will be addressed in the upcoming patches.
