Been there, done that. Tried running Valorant on my Ubuntu setup using a VM and Wine. It's doable but brace yourself for a headache. Performance takes a hit and it's not the same as playing on Windows. If you're serious about your Valorant game, I’d recommend sticking to a Windows setup.

Straight talk, no. Valorant's strictly a no-go on Ubuntu. Riot Games made it for Windows only. You might find ways around it, but it's not gonna be a walk in the park. If you're really into Valorant, might be time to consider dual-booting Windows or getting a dedicated gaming rig.

Oops, gonna have to be the bearer of bad news here. Valorant is a Windows-exclusive, meaning it's not natively supported on Ubuntu or any Linux distributions for that matter. But, there's a silver lining! Some players get creative with Wine or a Virtual Machine to run Windows on Ubuntu and then play Valorant. It's not perfect and might take some tech gymnastics, but where there’s a will, there's a way!
