The first thing is first, the game (and the beta) is only available on PC. So if you're expecting to play the game on a console (or, dare we say, a Mac), you're out of luck.

Got a PC? Here's how to jump in.

1) Grab a Riot account from RiotGames.com (or login to an existing one)

2) Sign up for Twitch (or login to an existing one)

3) Link both accounts here

4) Watch Valorant streams on Twitch, keeping an eye out for the "drops enabled" tag.

Here are some streamers that WILL have drops:

  • Gotaga
  • Forsen
  • Mickalow
  • Neo
  • Taz
  • Summit1g
  • Timthetatman
  • DrLupo
  • Ace
  • Dizzy
  • Hiko
  • fl0m

5) If you get the drop, you'll be able to follow instructions in an email to get to play Valorant.
