How do I remove Valorant from Riot client?

Answered by Cody Janus

To remove Valorant from the Riot client, you can follow these steps:

1. First, open the Riot client on your computer. You can do this by clicking on the Windows icon on your taskbar or pressing the Windows key on your keyboard. Then, type “Riot” in the search bar and press enter to open the Riot client.

2. Once the Riot client is open, you will see a list of games on the left side of the client. Look for Valorant in the list and click on it to select it.

3. After selecting Valorant, you will see an option to uninstall the game. This option is usually located on the right side of the client, either under the game’s logo or in a menu accessed by clicking on three dots or a gear icon.

4. Click on the uninstall option and a confirmation prompt may appear asking if you want to remove the game. Confirm the uninstallation by clicking “Yes” or “Uninstall” on the prompt.

5. The Riot client will then start the uninstallation process, which may take some time depending on the size of the game and your computer’s performance.

6. Once the uninstallation is complete, you will receive a notification confirming that Valorant has been successfully removed from your computer.

It’s worth noting that uninstalling Valorant will also remove Riot Vanguard, the anti-cheat software it uses. If you want to remove Riot Vanguard separately, you can do so by following these additional steps:

1. Press the Windows key on your keyboard or click on the Windows icon on your taskbar to open the Start menu.

2. Type “Add or remove programs” in the search bar and press enter to open the Windows settings page for uninstalling programs.

3. On the settings page, scroll down the list of installed programs until you find “Riot Vanguard.”

4. Right-click on Riot Vanguard and select the “Uninstall” option from the context menu.

5. Follow any prompts or instructions that appear to complete the uninstallation process.

By following these steps, you should be able to remove Valorant from the Riot client and uninstall Riot Vanguard if desired.
