The game won't start
Here are answers to the most common mistakes. If you did not find anything suitable to solve your problem, we recommend that you go to broker, where in more detail you can get acquainted with any error encountered in Valorant.
The game crashes to the desktop without any errors.
A: Most likely the problem is in corrupted game files. In such a case, it is recommended to reinstall the game, after copying all the saves. If the game was downloaded from the official store, you can not worry about the safety of progress.
Valorant doesn't work on console.
A: Update the software to the latest version, and also check the stability of the Internet connection. If a full update of the console firmware and the game itself did not solve the problem, then you should re-download the game, after deleting it from the disk.
A: There are two solutions.
The first is a complete reinstall of the game. In some cases, this fixes the problem.
The second consists of two stages:
- Complete reinstallation (if the installer offers the option to delete files on the first run, we do this and then run it again for a clean installation) of the DirectX, Microsoft Visual C ++ and Microsoft .NET Framework components.
- If it does not help, then you will need to check the game shortcut with the Dependency Walker application (or equivalent). As a result of the application, you will have a list of all the files necessary for the game to work.
A: Most often, this error occurs due to the presence of Cyrillic (Russian letters) in one of the ways in which the game stores its files. This can be a username or the folder itself in which the game is located. The solution is to install the game in another folder, the name of which is written in English letters or change the username.
A: This error is related to the blocking of one or more game files by antivirus or Windows Defender. To fix it, you need to add the entire game folder to the exceptions. For each antivirus, this procedure is individual and you should refer to its help system. It is worth noting that you do this at your own risk. We all love repacks, but if this error often torments you, you should think about buying games. Even if at discounts, which can be found in news on our website.
No msvcp 140.dll/msvcp 120.dll/msvcp 110.dll/msvcp 100.dll
A: The error occurs if the computer does not have the correct version of the Microsoft Visual C++ package, which includes msvcp 140.dll (and similar ones). The solution is to install the required version of the package.
After downloading and installing the new package, the error should disappear. If the message about missing msvcp 140.dll (120, 110, 100) persists, do the following:
- Click on Windows + R;
- Enter the command “regsvr2 msvcp140.dll” (without quotes);
- Click "OK";
- We reboot the computer.
Error 0xc0000009a/0xc0000009b/0xc0000009f and others
A: All errors starting with the index 0xc0000009 (for example, 0xc0000009a, where any letter or number can be in place of “a”) can be attributed to the same family. Such errors are the result of problems with RAM or the paging file.
Before starting the following steps, we strongly recommend that you disable some of the background processes and third-party programs, and then try running Valorant again.
Increase the swap file size:
- Right-click on the computer icon, and then: "Advanced system settings" - "Advanced" - "Performance" - "Advanced" - "Virtual memory" - "Change".
- We select one disk, we set the same size.
The size of the paging file must be a multiple of 1024. The size depends on the free space on the selected local drive. We recommend setting it equal to the amount of RAM.
If error 0xc0000009a persists, you need to check your RAM. To do this, you need to use the functions of such programs as MemTest86, Acronis, Everest.
Game slows down and lags
Most likely this problem is hardware in nature. Check the system requirements of the game and set the correct graphics quality settings. Learn more about game optimization read on our website. Exceptional cases are discussed below.
There were brakes in the game.
A: Check your computer for viruses, disable unnecessary background processes and unused programs in the task manager. It is also worth checking the status of the hard drive using specialized programs like Hard Drive Inspector. Check the temperature of the processor and video card - it may be time to service your computer.
Long loading times in the game.
A: Check the status of your hard drive. It is recommended to remove unnecessary mods - they can greatly affect the duration of downloads. Check the antivirus settings and be sure to set it to “game mode” or its equivalent.
A: The causes of periodic brakes (freezes or lags) in Valorant can be applications running in the background. Particular attention should be paid to programs like Discord and Skype. If there are lags in other games, then we recommend checking the condition of the hard drive - most likely it's time to replace it.
Many modifications require additional programs to run or are installed “on top” of other mods. Read the installation instructions carefully and follow all the steps exactly.
Before launching any modifications, it is mandatory to download Microsoft Visual C ++ and Microsoft .NET Framework and Java Runtime Environment from the official websites of the developers. Both of these platforms are used to some extent to create and launch modifications, especially complex ones.
Check the stability of your internet connection as well as the download speed. If the ping is too high or the bandwidth is too low, the update may give errors.
If the Valorant store or launcher does not complete updates or gives errors, then reinstall the program itself. In this case, all the games you downloaded will be saved.
Run a game data integrity check.
Check the availability of free space on the disk where the game is installed, as well as on the disk with the operating system. In both cases, there should be no less free space than the game currently occupies. Ideally, always have a margin of about 100GB.
Check your antivirus and Windows Defender settings and firewall permissions. It is quite possible that they limit the Internet connection for a number of applications. This problem can also be solved by completely reinstalling the store or launcher. most of them will ask you to provide access to the Internet during the installation process.
Check your internet connection and make sure you have the latest updates. Check the settings of your antivirus - it is quite possible that at the moment it restricts access to the Internet for a number of applications. Maybe the game is preparing for a big update? Or is the error not only yours?
Black screen and crash when trying to enter the game.
A: If you're using a VPN, then it's more likely to be the problem. Try changing its settings or temporarily disable it. It is recommended to change the region in the game itself (if such an option is provided). After some time, you can return to the usual settings.
“Invalid session” and similar.
A: Restart the launcher and wait for it to reconnect to the servers. If this does not help, you will need to restart the computer and router.
Valorant is not connecting to the server.
A: Most likely, the game server is overloaded or a particular lobby is not available at the moment. Try refreshing the list of available servers or simply restarting the game.
PS Make sure that your account or ip-address has not been banned in the game for violating the rules, and that cheats and other prohibited programs are not installed on your computer.
