Riot’s breakout FPS team shooter game, Valorant, is one of the most popular online games at the moment, boasting a tremendous following and a huge player base.

If that is the case, there is an easy way for you to check the server status of Valorant to confirm if it’s just on your end or if everyone else is unable to play the game. Here’s how you can do it.

Where to check server status for Valorant

The most direct way to see Valorant’s server status is also the best way to check if they are down or facing any issues. There is a handy Valorant official server status page that you should check first to confirm if there are any major server issues for logging in or finding matches. Once on that page, you can select your region from a drop-down menu and from there get the information about your server’s status.

Other than that, it is a good idea to keep an eye on Valorant’s official Twitter page to see if Riot has posted anything about experiencing issues or if there is a planned maintenance or server downtime coming soon. It is also important to keep in mind that big updates can bring a lot of people back to the game, which can cause issues for everyone.

If the servers are working fine but you still can’t log into the game, you can also go to Valorant’s support page to find a way to solve the issue that you are facing. There is an FAQ section that might contain the solution for the problem you’re facing. Even if you can’t find the answer there, you can then submit a ticket explaining the problem, and someone from Riot’s support team will contact you to try and resolve the issue.
