In this article, we’ll show you how to fix Valorant from crashing, freezing, running slow, stuttering or fps drops.
- First, make sure that your PC meets the minimum requirements needed to run the Valorant. If not then you may need to upgrade your PC.
- Disable all unnecessary background applications including TuneUp utility.
- Update all your PC’s outdated Software and Hardware drivers (CPU, GPU, audio etc…)
- Free up memory and clearing the cache: make sure that your PC has adequate RAM to run Valorant.
- Defrag your hard disks
You can also customize the in-game settings as shown below:
First, go to the Valorant in game settings - then to the Video and in the General settings make sure that your Display Mode is set to Fullscreen and all the other setting as shown below:
Next open the Task Manager while the game is running - from the processes tab select the Valorant and then right click to select to go to details.
In the details section the “VALORANT-Win64-Shipping.exe” Process should be highlighted, then set this Processes to high. This will allocate more CPU resources to run the game.
Next open the Performance Options (Go to This PC - Right click it – select Properties- Advanced system settings-from System Properties select Advanced tab and then Performance settings) make sure to turn off all the highlighted option settings as shown below (This will slightly improve your system performance):
