Riot’s tactical shooter VALORANT is getting tons of hype. But just like any new title, server issues are inevitable.

VALORANT fans may be experiencing several errors, including the infamous error code 43. Riot has been communicative in how it’s handling these issues, explaining exactly what the devs are doing to manage the madness.

Here’s how to check on the status of VALORANT’s servers.

A player’s best bet is to check the VALORANT Twitter account, which has been updating fans regularly on the game’s status.

Riot has also added VALORANT to its Service Status page. Updates for all of the company's titles, like League of Legends and Legends of Runeterra, are both found on the Service Status page. Any errors are usually accompanied by a timestamp for when they began and sometimes include a time frame for when the servers will be up and running.

And fans who are receiving pesky error messages can check out its support page. There, players can see a list of errors, their meaning, and ways to potentially solve the issue.

Riot also has a VALORANT support section on its website with urgent notifications at the top.
