Valorant: What are the minimum PC requirements?

Here are the minimum specs needed for Valorant

Valorant is an FPS online shooter that is free-to-play and has become one of the biggest growing titles in eSports over the past year.

The Riot Games title has quickly drafted in some of the biggest names in eSports to play the title professionally, including many who have made the jump from CS:GO and Fortnite.

If you're new to the game, you'll want to know exactly what PC specifications you'll need to get the optimum experience on PC, and we've compiled them for you below.

The minimum requirements for players were recently upped as part of the new release of Episode 3 Act 2. Here is what Riot suggests gamers have to play the FPS at the minimum level:

Minimum Requirements on PC at 30 FPS

  • Processor - Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 (Intel), Athlon 200GE (AMD)
  • Graphics Card - Intel HD 4000, Radeon R5 200
  • RAM memory - 4 GB
  • VRAM - 1GB
  • Disk space - At least 10GB
  • Operating System -  Windows 7/8/10 64-Bit

Even though these are the recommended minimum specifications, players will likely be able to get some playability out of older rigs, although the performance level will not be great and Riot will not be able to offer any official technical help.
