Below, you’ll find a list of different fixes that have worked for different players, some of which are verified by Valorant players in this Reddit thread. For most of them to work, you’ll need to restart the game and/or your computer. Use this checklist for a potential Valorant stuck on loading screen fix:

  • Double-check your internet connection
  • Reinstall the game and the Riot Vanguard
    • Try reinstalling on a different hard drive
  • Run the game as an administrator
    • Exit Valorant
      • Right-click its icon
        • Properties
          • Compatibility tab
            • “Run this program as an administrator”
  • Delete the manifest.txt files
    • Search for Riot Games/VALORANT/live
      • Delete Manifest Debug Files and Manifest_No
  • Log in to League of Legends, sign out, then log back into Valorant

If none of the above fixes work for you, again, it could be that the game is currently down for maintenance or that your internet connection died while loading. You could just have to wait a little while and the game could work again as normal.
