Having trouble with Valorant not opening on Windows 11? Most times, it's a compatibility issue or something's up with the game files. First things first, run the game as an administrator. Right-click on the game icon, select 'Properties', go to the 'Compatibility' tab, and check 'Run this program as an administrator'. If that doesn't do the trick, try updating your graphics drivers. Outdated drivers can cause all sorts of mayhem. And if you're still stuck, a fresh install might be your best bet. Sometimes files get corrupted, and starting fresh can work wonders.

Mine wouldn't open cause my antivirus was blocking it. Make sure to check your antivirus settings and make Valorant an exception. Had to learn it the hard way.

Could be Riot Vanguard, Valorant's anti-cheat, acting up. Try disabling it, then re-enable and see if that fixes it. Remember, Vanguard needs to be running for Valorant to work, but sometimes toggling it off and on can kickstart things.
