When the Valorant closed beta was released earlier this April, not many were able to predict just how popular the game was going to be. 

In just a few weeks, Riot Games’ new IP has secured an incredible number of fans across the world, with top eSports organisations already creating their official rosters

However, gaining access to the closed beta of the game is not all that easy. You will have to go through a lengthy and time-consuming process. First, you will have to create a Riot account, and then link it to your Twitch profile. You will then have to watch a bunch of Valorant streams in the hope of gaining stream drops

Successfully completing these steps will require a lot of time and patience on your part, and getting a beta key won’t always be a guarantee. 

But, if you are one of those lucky few who was able to stumble onto a lot of Twitch drops, and you have a beta key, here is how you go about downloading and installing the game client:
