VALORANT is removing support for older versions of Windows 10

Starting November 28, 2022, VALORANT will no longer support older versions of Windows that are not fully compatible with Vanguard, VALORANT's anti-cheat and security software. These versions of Windows are no longer supported by Microsoft, allowing cheaters to bypass certain security features that enable us to keep VALORANT safe.

The following older Windows 10 Versions (Redstone 3 and earlier) will no longer be supported starting November 28, 2022: 

Version Codename Build
