Riot Games is an expert at making its games run on almost anything. It’s a big part of the reason why League of Legends has several million active players per day. The company is taking a similar approach with its tactical shooter Valorant.

Here are the minimum and recommended requirements to run the game:

System requirements

  • OS: Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit)
  • RAM: 4GB

Minimum (30 FPS)

  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400
  • GPU: Intel HD 4000

Recommended (60 FPS)

  • CPU: Intel i3-4150
  • GPU: Geforce GT 730

High-End (144+ FPS)

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-9400F 2,9 GHz
  • GPU: GTX 1050 Ti

Most laptops and PCs should be able to run Valorant at 30 FPS. If you’re planning to play more competitively, you might want to be able to run the game at 60 FPS or higher.
