Valorant has introduced a new word filter

Riot Games looked into the matter of community-toxicity for Valorant and came to the solution of adding a word filter to conceal toxicity as much as possible.

For instance, female players generally face more toxicity in the gaming world for their minority and toxic players don’t fail to abuse them. With the new features, these players can strike off words that are derogatory and give them a much better experience in terms of communication.


The system is pretty easy to use and all players need to do is add keywords that they want to blacklist. This setting can be found under the communication page and they will never show up on the player’s screen ever again.
