Valorant is surprisingly polished given its short life. However, this doesn’t mean that it doesn’t come with a few issues here and there. Players experience a few issues while trying to launch Valorant, with one of them being the “Version Mismatch” issue. How can you solve it?
What is Version Missmatch in Valorant?
For starters, let’s identify the issue. The Version Mismatch error in Valorant appears upon connection try. The source of the problem is the fact that different regions use different editions of the game, creating conflict among them. This is due to patch notes pushed earlier to some servers. What you basically need to do is force your version of Valorant to update.
How to Resolve
To do so, close the client completely and restart it. This will most likely force the update to start thus eliminating the Version Mismatch error in Valorant. If this doesn’t work, then you might need to uninstall the game completely and redownload it in order to get the patch downloading. Yes, we know it’s the least you wanted to hear but it’s better than a game that won’t start.
If, even after redownloading, Valorant still won’t run then your best bet is to wait for the update to start on its own. This depends on the time Riot Games will push the patch onto your region’s server which will take up to a few hours.
