Identification of Hackers in Valorant

It’s not new that popular games soon develop their own hacks and there’s no shortage of people who will buy the hacks to climb on top illegally and immorally. Recently, several Valorant players have been actively complaining about the massive wave of cheaters appearing repeatedly in ranked matches. Even with sophisticated anti-cheat software like Vanguard, Valorant is not exactly free of cheaters.

Players have taken over Twitter & Reddit by large and are complaining to Riot about the sudden wave of cheaters in official games. The cheaters are worsening the matchmaking experience for everyone and in the case of competitive titles like Valorant, even a slight disadvantage results in loss of match which in turn affects player ranks.

Valorant has an intricate system of using anti-cheat software. As it’s a kernel-level software, its very intrusiveness is what makes it so successful in today’s ESports market. In spite, players can see many sketchy players around them. The main Valorant hacks are Aimbot, Wallhack, and ESP (Extra Sensory Perception). These essentially combine to give players superhuman accuracy and foresight, elevating their skills and anticipation beyond what’s legitimately possible.

  3. Hold Tab to enable the cursor, then right-click the offending player’s name.
  4. Click the “Report” option.
  5. Click the “Cheating” tickbox and then the “Report” button.

To report a player after a Valorant match has concluded:

  1. From the menu, navigate to the “Career” tab.
  2. Select the match in which you encountered a cheater.
  3. Navigate to the “Scoreboard” screen.
  4. Right-click the offending player’s name.
