You will encounter valorant error code if something goes wrong while playing. Many error codes have to do with the Riot Client, if that happens you have to close it and open it again. Restarting your PC to ensure that Vanguard has booted before you play can also help.
In addition to the standard error codes, it can also happen that there is server maintenance. That can happen at any time, especially during the start of a new season. However, there are also some more mysterious error messages that simply report that something unusual happened. We have finally figured out exactly what that means.
How to Fix Valorant Error Code 7
It’s a server error that makes you lose connection. The message that comes up is “Couldn’t connect to service session”. Your account may be banned. Check your email to see if you have received a message. If this happens, you will always receive an email from it. It could also be related to the platform you are playing on. Check out the Valorant Discord of the Support Site for more information.
For starters, try restarting your game for a simple fix. It may seem obvious but there’s a good chance a second attempt at loading the game will work.
If your connection is still not working, the next step is to entirely restart your computer. Once your hardware is back online, try to open Valorant and connect once again.
Double-check your network status if the game refuses to open after a full restart. It’s likely your internet connection is the cause of the error.
If all of the above fails, there’s nothing left to do but wait for this one out. A permanent fix is in the works, though there’s no ETA when it will be deployed. Riot’s servers have been hit offline a number of times since the full release of Valorant, so a number of kinks are certainly still being worked out.
How to fix Valorant Error Code 29
An antivirus that is preloaded to your system encounters an error with Valorant and causes the error 29. It is a little trickier to solve than error 7. Your firewall prevents the Valorant to function properly.
Use the Windows search bar and input: ‘Allow an app through Windows Firewall.’
From this section of the control panel, click ‘change settings’ at the top of the window. Then make sure you ‘allow another app.’
Simply find the location of your Valorant install and click OK to ensure that it’s added as a new app. You’ll want to do the same for Valorant’s anti-cheat software and the Launcher as well. Find the Vanguard file along with Riot’s launcher and click OK on those applications as well.
Check all boxes for all three programs under the ‘Firewall exceptions’ category and click OK.
All components should now be passed through your Firewall in order to avoid Error Code 29.
