How old do you need to be to play Valorant?

The competitive FPS game Valorant from Riot Games includes special age restrictions that prevent younger players from playing. Valorant has been rated T for Teen by the ESRB and PEGI 16 by the PEGI age rating organization, so users must be at least 16 years old to play. This age restriction is strictly enforced by Riot Games, and anyone under 16 will be prevented from downloading the game.

Interestingly, the two major game content rating groups have slightly different takes on the Valorant age requirement. The ESRB T rating suggests that the game is suitable for players 13 or older, while the PEGI 16 rating insists on a minimum age of 16. Despite this discrepancy, both groups agree that Valorant is unsuitable for players under 13.

Valorant’s age restriction is based on specific content within the game, including blood splatter effects, the use of firearms to kill human opponents and mild language. For parents who may be concerned about these elements, Valorant offers options to disable both blood and corpses, providing some level of control over the visual content.
