In a relatively short time, Riot Games has launched a closed beta of Valorant. Right now, only a few streamers and influencers are testing the game. This is a common process that is done to test the servers, see that there are no errors in the game, etc.
What does Valorant Closed Beta mean?
A closed beta is a step prior to the opening of the beta, (Open Beta) where only a few can enter to play and test it. As we explained in the previous paragraph, only a limited number of people can come in and try everything. The next step will be an open beta, where all players who want to can download and install the game.
How to enter the Valorant Closed Beta?
Currently and as a novelty, the people of Riot Games are dropping accesses to the Valorant beta. You have to just follow a few simple steps to get it done.
Linking your Riot account to Twitch
The first thing you should do is link your Riot Games account with Twitch. To do this you can access Twitch from this link: Link RIOT account with Twitch
Enjoy Valorant broadcasts on Twitch
The next step is to watch the broadcasts that streamers are doing on Valorant’s Twitch. In these streams, from time to time, Riot Games “Drops” (Give away) access to the beta. It can be in any stream of all there are, you just have to have a little luck and choose the Correct Stream.
Riot’s Game named Valarant has been getting players’ attention when it was released. It has the same touch that we could see with CS: GO but with some hypernatural changes. It’s a five-on-five match where there are different modes available to choose the winning team. However, despite only using weapons on Valorant, you also need to use your creativity. Here each character has a unique set of abilities and is combined with firearms; gives a new flavor to the whole genre of shooting games.
Although the game has fantastic playability, the Valorant installation process has not been easier for people. Valorant needs Vanguard on your system to install Valorant. The Vallarant installation is not a problem, the problem will lie with Vanguard. Many on Reddit reported dependency unable to install, no Riot Vanguard bugs installed. Here in this tutorial, I will guide you on how to fix this dependency error.

How to fix Vanguard cannot install a dependency error?
First Use a second computer or laptop and log in to your created Valorant account to download and install the game. If the problem comes up again with this computer as well, then don’t worry. Not all systems face this problem, so ask your friends who have gotten it up and running (probably on a genuine Windows 10 system). Now when you install Vanguard, it installs into C: Riot Games VALORANT. Nobody has a problem with this.
The main problem lies in the fact that in my computer- C:/ Program Files, you don’t have a Riot Vanguard folder of valorant. So with the help of your friend or second computer, any computer not facing this problem, copy the Riot Vanguard folder to C: Program Files. Paste it on your system in the C: Program Files folder. Try double-clicking the VGC file inside Riot Vanguard to install Vanguard, but that won’t work. You will see a pop-up window showing that Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file. Therefore, to install Vanguard, you must disable signature verification by rebooting the system. The process is different for Windows 7 or Windows 10/8 / 8.1. and For Windows 7, restart your PC, and just before the Windows icon appears, keep pressing the F8 button. Advanced Boot Options will appear. Now using the arrow keys on your keyboard, scroll down to the option Disable driver signing enforcement and press Enter.
For Windows 8 / 8.1 / 10, click the start button and choose the restart under the power option. While clicking restart here, remember to hold down the Shift key. When the system restarts, you should see a screen with three options, choose the troubleshooting option. Now click on Advanced Options. Then in the next window, click Startup Settings. You will now see the Restart button. Click on it and then you will see a list of options from 1 to 9. See what number is assigned to the Disable Driver Signing Enforcement option and press Enter on your keyboard.
Now go to the C: Riot Vanguard Program Files folder. Right-click on the vgc.exe file and click Run as administrator. If you see the Windows security window, click the Install this driver software anyway option. Vanguard will now install on your system. After installing Vanguard, reboot the system again and then try restarting the game. It should work this time.
However, please note that the Disable Driver Signature Enforcement option must be selected each time you start your PC to play Valiant. Without this option, you cannot rate. There is no way around it, so you have to repeat the two Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10 steps mentioned above every time.
