So you’re getting the Valorant error code 29, eh? As Riot Games continues to expand upon the Valorant universe to make the ultimate online gaming experience, the true nature of online games continues to come out and play. Errors, glitches, and bugs are nothing new and they are unavoidable but for those experiencing error code 29, there is a light at the end of that tunnel: it’s easy to fix. 

How to fix Valorant error code 29

Error code 29 is tied to error code 43, which you can learn more about here, but in that same vein this particular code just means that Riot Games is experiencing typical server issues and that there is a temporary maintenance act being implemented that is causing disruption. That being said, there is a workaround if you continually see this error code, though it may take a few tries if you’re running into any resistance. 

In order to circumvent Valorant error code 29, most have found success when it comes to running the game itself as Administrator. If you want to give it the ‘ol one-two, then we recommend rebooting your computer as well as we suggested with Error code 43. 

As for the game itself, Riot Games has been doing a lot to make Valorant even better including recent character model changes and continuous feedback from players that are getting in on that competitive action. If you’re just now jumping in, you can also scope out our Valorant tier list for those looking to compare characters and see how their favs stack up against the rest. 

For those interested, the Valorant closed beta is still going on, though for how long we aren’t sure, though a Summer release is still on pace. It will be interesting to see how Valorant continues to evolve based on player feedback, especially with so many predicting that this is a shooter that could rival that of CS:GO and Overwatch in a professional gaming setting. 

Now that you know how to fix the Valorant error code 29, what do you think about Valorant, in its current state, so far?
