Developed by Riot Games, Valorant is an exciting multiplayer first-person shooter game released in 2020 for PC (Windows) only.
Valorant is an online multiplayer shooting game involving two teams, each with five players on each. Players can choose their characters (or “agents”), acquire abilities, and modify their loadout before the battle starts. The rule is simple: the first team to win 13 or more rounds out of 25 wins the game. The game can be found similar to the popular game CS:GO, released back in 2012, but with a few modifications like unique characters and abilities. One thing that makes Valorant much more popular among gamers is the low system requirements of this game. It can easily run at medium graphic settings on an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4GB of RAM, and Intel HD graphics. Riot Games is yet to introduce many more updates to the game regarding performance and overall gameplay, and we have our expectations set high. But as for now, we’re going to take upon a commonly reported issue among the Valorant players, i.e., “How to fix the Valorant store not working issue.” So let’s get to the cause of this problem and help you get rid of it.
What is the “Valorant store not working” issue and how to fix it?
This error usually occurs when the game is not able to establish a connection with Valorant’s servers. The reason for this could be anything from high traffic to some internal issue with Riot’s client interface, or the problem could even be at your end. Whatever the cause may be, you should try out the list of solutions given below to get rid of the error.
Solution # 1- Restart your PC.
This fix is one of the most commonly working fixes for the “valorant store not working” issue. Closing the game and then restarting your PC helps to eliminate any temporary glitches or bugs in the game, and doing so can definitely get you back in the game.
Solution # 2- Check your internet connection
This problem can also be caused by frequent disconnections, low internet speed, or an unstable internet connection. Test your internet connection before moving forward. Close Valorant, disconnect your PC from the network, and then restart the router. Also, make sure that the VPN is off. Connect to the network again and run the game. Check if the issue is resolved, or else keep reading.
Solution # 3- Play the waiting game
If nothing seems to be working for you, the best thing that you can do is close the game, shut down your PC and try again after at least 1-2 hours. The reason for doing this is that it may be possible that the game’s servers are just down. This usually happens when the servers are overburdened by high traffic-mostly when something new is released in the store.
