Is Valorant Down? How To Check Valorant Server Status

At least a server issue guarantees the problem isn’t you.

Riot Games provides excellent support for Valorant with regular patches keeping the game updated. Oftentimes, however, successfully deploying patches means taking the game’s server offline, and this latest patch (5.06) is no exception. Here’s what you need to know about whether Valorant is down and how to check the server status to see if the game is down.

Is Valorant Down? Answered

Yes, Valorant is temporarily offline as Riot Games deploys the latest update, Patch 5.06. As stated in our dedicated article on the matter, Patch 5.06 is set to introduce major changes to the game, including an overhaul to Pearl and buffs to the Stinger. As such, it could take a little longer than usual to get the patch uploaded — still, we’d imagine it won’t be more than a couple of hours.

Of course, the rollout of the patch will be at different times depending on which region you are playing the game.

The generic times for each region’s server maintenance during patch deployment are as follows:

Asia Pacific: 14:00 PDT
Brazil: 06:00 PDT
Europe: 20:00 PDT
Korea: 14:00 PDT
Latin America: 06:00 PDT
North America: 06:00 PDT

If you’re wondering what PDT is to your local time, use a converter such as this one.

Where To Check Valorant Server Status

As a reminder, if you’re ever wondering whether Valorant’s servers are down due to an issue with the game (and not a patch deploy), your first stop when it comes to confirming the current status of the Valorant servers should be the Riot Games status page. Here you can see messages for any known ongoing issues, and there is also a button for “Recently Closed” problems that will tell you if/when recent troubles were fixed.

The second best place to look is simply to go on Riot Games’ Valorant Twitter channel, which always relays important information such as server status.

You can also head to Down Detector. Seeing as that site doesn’t rely on Riot Games to acknowledge a problem and instead collects the reports of players, you can sometimes get a more accurate read on if a problem is just you or not.

That’s everything you need to know about how to check the Valorant server status to see if the game is down. Be sure to stick around as we bring you more info on any possible widespread issues. For now, check the links below to see any of our recent Valorant coverage.
