Players are searching for a fix to the issue behind this problem that is preventing them from playing.

Valorant Has Encountered a Connection Error Fix

Now, there is a couple of steps that you can take if you have encountered a connection error when playing Riot Games' first-person shooter. One of these is to restart the client for the game and try to play again. If restarting the client does not work, see if your firewall is blocking access to the game or the Vanguard anti-cheat. Make sure both of these are granted access if your firewall is blocking access to them.

You can also uninstall the Vanguard anti-cheat program and then launch Valorant. This will cause you to a fresh install of the Vanguard anti-cheat. Install it once again and restart your game if you have encountered a connection error when trying to play, and the steps above do not help fix your game.
