Valorant is an online first-person hero shooter game that has risen in popularity since its release in 2020. With multiple agents and different maps that are constantly updated through buffs and nerfs, the game requires regular maintenance to keep it running like a well-oiled machine. It might be annoying for players to see their favorite game go into maintenance for specific periods of time but it is highly imperative.

Just like any other game, players could experience issues while logging into the game servers because of a bug, or Riot Games might have just taken the servers down for maintenance, to push out a patch update, a hotfix, or a whole new Act and Episode. Here’s everything we know about Valorant scheduled maintenance.


What is Valorant scheduled maintenance?

Valorant scheduled maintenance is basically the official downtime of the game which can take a few hours, especially in the case of a new Act or a new Episode. Valorant scheduled maintenance is usually made known to the public beforehand since it goes hand-in-hand with the release of new patches. When the recent Valorant patch 5.0 dropped on 22nd June, Riot Games announced a period of maintenance that lasted for a few hours.

For instance, the following were the Valorant scheduled maintenance times for the latest patch that recently got released, according to Riot Games:

  • Asia Pacific: Servers will be going down for maintenance on 22nd June at 14:00 PDT

  • Brazil: Servers will be going down for maintenance on 22nd June at 06:00 PDT

  • Europe: Servers will be going down for maintenance on 22nd June at 20:00 PDT

  • Korea: Servers will be going down for maintenance on 22nd June at 14:00 PDT

  • Latin America: Servers will be going down for maintenance on 22nd June at 06:00 PDT

  • North America: Servers will be going down for maintenance on 22nd June at 06:00 PDT

All the servers across different regions were down only for an hour or so and usually, these Valorant scheduled maintenance periods are not expected to extend beyond that.


How to check if Valorant servers are down?

The best way to check the downtime during Valorant scheduled maintenance is to keep tabs on the official handles of Valorant on social media sites like Twitter. The game’s developer team always instantaneously provides information and updates on server issues and maintenance. If the game’s servers are down, you will likely see an explanation for the same. There is also another way to check if the Valorant servers are down for maintenance. Players can visit the official Valorant Server Status website run by Riot Games and also check out Valorant Down Detector.
