The best way to know the current Valorant server status is to check if Valorant is down for the whole world or just for you.

Valorant, developed by Riot Games, continues to be one of the most popular FPS games in the world. With 24 Agents, a constant rotation of competitive maps, and some of the coolest weapon skins in history, Valorant constantly has thousands of players enjoying (or raging at) the game at any given time. With so much activity and frequent updates, sometimes the Valorant servers go down, leaving fans wondering when the game is coming back online.

Here's how to check the Valorant server status so you always know when the game is up and running.

Valorant Server Status: How to Check if Valorant is Down

To check if Valorant is down, head to the official Valorant sever status page. If there are any worldwide problems with the Valorant servers, Riot Games will report the issue on the website. Fans can also select their region to see if a current problem is location-specific.

Another way to check the Valorant server status is by visiting Downdetector. The third-party website gives live-time updates on the Valorant servers and even announces certain issues that are impacting the game's server status.

If you are still experiencing server issues on Valorant even if the official server status pages reveal no pending issues, then the issue is likely on your end and not impacting other players.

When is Valorant Downtime?

Valorant downtime is typically a few hours before new Episodes or Acts go live. If there is a major update coming to Valorant, expect the game to be down as the servers prepare to launch the new patch, usually at 5 p.m. ET.

Otherwise, the Valorant servers should be up and running at all times unless there is a scheduled maintenance. Fortunately, the developers almost always announce the maintenance times, so you should know when the game goes down.

Official Valorant Communication Channels

The official Valorant X account will report critical server issues to fans, as well as upcoming updates that will require the game to go down for a few hours. The Riot Games Support X account also posts sever issues and resolutions.

Make sure you follow both pages to always know when Valorant is up and running.
