What is the best resolution for Valorant?

The best resolution will depend on your preferences. Some players will have no problems playing on the default 1920×1080 resolution, while others want to change the default res to their preferred settings.

Regardless of your resolution choice, you must remember that most lineup guides online will be based on the default 1920×1080 resolution. Changing the in-game res to something other than the default will cause alignment issues with lineups.

That said, pick the resolution that gives you the best visibility and performance.

How to use Stretched Res in Valorant

You can use Stretched Res in Valorant by picking any 4:3 resolution options in the resolution menu. If you’re playing on the default 16:9 resolution, picking a 4:3 resolution will automatically fill the screen with your desired resolution.

Back in the day, you would have to change screen fill settings through your graphics card menu to get a stretched resolution on CSGO and other FPS titles. Riot Games realizes that many Valorant players would want to use stretched res, making the option more seamless.

Remember that changing to stretched res will affect anchor points for lineups and other setups in-game, so adjust accordingly.

Final Thoughts

Screen Resolution, like many other settings such as Crosshair shape, size, and color, is a matter of preference for many Valorant players. What works for others might not necessarily work for you, but it is still worth trying the various screen resolution options in Valorant to get a good idea of the pros and cons they offer in-game.
