Disable Firewall / Add Valorant Executables to Exception
Open up Start Menu and search for Firewall & Network Protection and open it up.
Click on the Allow an app through Firewall and click on the Change Settings button with the administrator shield icon.
Click on Allow another app button then browse for your Valorant shortcut file on desktop. Select the shortcut file and hit open button. It will add an app called RiotClientServices.
Then add another app then navigate to your Valorant installation path. Open up the Valorant Folder.
Open the live folder and add the Valorant.exe application to the firewall.

Allow another app one last time, while on the same path navigate through Valorant Installation Path – “Valorant/live/shootergame/binaries/win64/” and then add the VALORANT-Win64-Shipping.exe to the exceptions.
Be sure to have the rules for Valorant, BootstrapPackagedGame and RiotClientServices apps to be allowed both for private and public networks by ticking the respective checkboxes.
