  • The first fix to try is to quit Valorant by pressing ALT+F4 on your keyboard and restarting the game.
  • If the issue is not fixed, quit the game and rerun it as administrator. You can do it by right-clicking on its icon and hitting the Run As Administrator option in the menu.
  • While one of the above fixes made the bug go away for most players, if you are still stuck with him, try updating your mouse and graphics drivers if they are not updated. 
  • If none of the fixes work for you somehow, either uninstall and reinstall Valorant or report the bug to the support team. They will come back to you with some potential fixes based on the information provided by you.
