Valorant: How to add your friends

The first thing to be aware of is that Valorant is in closed beta – so don't expect to be able to invite friends to jump in and join you as if the game was out.

Thankfully, if they're already in the beta, it's a pretty simple process. Simply head into the game and find the 'Add Friends' button at the bottom of your friends list.

Once your friend gets the request, they just need to accept and you'll be able to play together.
