VALORANT Error Codes List

Error codes are helpful for pinpointing specific problems found in PC software or hardware. Getting a good idea about exactly what caused a software crash or a sudden hardware failure can help you identify and possibly fix these problems as quickly as possible.

You’ve probably already seen some of these error codes in VALORANT. They typically come in either the VAL or VAN variant and are followed closely by one or two number codes that specify what type of error they are.

The good news is that Riot Games provides a list of useful descriptions for every VAL and VAN Error Code in VALORANT, so you can troubleshoot and attempt to resolve the problems yourself.

What is Error Code in VALORANT?

Error codes in VALORANT can appear when launching the game or randomly while you’re in a match. The cause for these errors is completely random, and typically, the same error codes do not appear twice in a short period of time.

For example, network problems can spew out varying VAL or VAN error codes every time you try to launch VALORANT in a network environment with intermittent or poor internet connectivity.

Sometimes, a quick restart of your router or PC can resolve these problems. Check out the table below to get a specific description of the problem you encountered with VALORANT.
