  • First of all, you might want to restart the Epic client or, if needed, your PC, as these simple fixes might actually do the trick.

  • Another neat trick to try, shared on the Valorant subreddit, is to just try and switch your account to a different one. Keeping a backup account might, then, be a good idea for these kinds of cases.
