Error Codes in VALORANT are very common and every player encounters them every once in a while. Here we’ll explain what these error codes refer to and how to fix them.

It’s not uncommon for an online game like VALORANT to experience issues, crashes, and errors. However, it may be aggravating at times, especially if you’re trying to get into VALORANT after a long hard day and the game doesn’t work.

When VALORANT faces a problem, a notification with an error code appears, helping you to figure out what went wrong and why you’re having trouble running your game. However, the message VALORANT presents do not immediately guide you on how to address the problem. As a result, resolving the issue is not as simple as it appears.

Instead, the client displays a message along with an error code. Each VALORANT Error Code has a numerical value ranging from 0 to 152 and VAN 0 to 9002, and each code has a unique meaning and reason for the difficulty you’re experiencing.
