Valorant: How to Fix All Error Codes

For any Valorant gamer, there is nothing worse than getting online to see an error flash up. This is particularly harder to fix without an error code. However, Riot Games like to help players even when things go wrong.

Error codes are springing up all over the place as users search for fixes. This is probably down to the updated Unreal engine which has been causing some teething issues. However, recently there has been a return of the issue. Players are wondering how to get these codes to disappear and what they actually mean.

So, let's take a look at what error codes mean and how players can fix them to return back to the field.

What are error codes?

Error codes are the way of telling the user that something is up. A fault in the client, a hardware fault or just the game deciding not to work. All are able to give players an error code in-game.
