Like all live service games, VALORANT has a host of issues affecting the game, and Riot Games has included error codes that will give players a bit of insight into the specific issue they are dealing with. .

One of the most common error codes is Error Code 40, which normally only appears when VALORANT game servers experience some kind of problem. Once Error Code 40 appears for a player, it will usually be accompanied by a message saying that there is an error "connecting to the platform" and asking players to restart their VALORANT game client.

Because this is a platform and server issue, the real issue is at Riot's extreme and not something that players can fix themselves. However, there are several things you can try to see if it was just a one-time bug rather than a complete game freeze.


  • Restart the VALORANT game client
  • Check the VALORANT server status on the official Riot website
  • Check your internet connection / restart your internet
  • Restart your PC

If none of the above works to fix the problem, you'll just have to wait until Riot fixes things at the end. This might take some time, but just keep an eye out for the VALORANT support pages and the server health checker.
