You can’t hear sound when playing Valorant. That can be frustrating as listening in Valorant is just as important as using your eyes. But don’t worry. The issue can be fixed. To fix Valorant audio not working issues, you can try the methods in this post.
Try the four methods below one by one then you should find the one that helps resolve the Valorant no sound issues.
Method 1: Check audio settings in Valorant
Valorant’s audio settings can affect the audio quality in game. When the sound is too quiet or too loud, you can adjust the volume by changing the audio settings in Valorant. The no sound issue can also be caused by incorrect audio settings. To fix the issue, you can check the audio settings and change the settings if necessary.
Here’s how to do it:
1) Launch Valorant and navigate to the home screen.
2) Click the gear icon in the top right corner of the home screen and select Settings on the menu.
3) Go to AUDIO -> SOUNDS.
Check if all sliders are moved to the right and all boxes are checked. If not, change the settings manually to make sure all sliders are moved to the right and all boxes are checked. Once done, relaunch Valorant and check to see if you can hear sound in it.
If Method 1 doesn’t work for you, continue to try Method 2.
Method 2: Check if Valorant is muted
If Valorant is muted in Windows, you can’t hear sound from it. So check if the game is muted and unmute it if required.
1) Right-click on the speaker icon on the taskbar and select Open Volume mixer.
2) Check if Valorant is muted. If it’s muted, you’ll see a red circle with a red line on it. If that’s the case, move the volume slider up to 100. After that, you’ll hear sound from Valorant again.
If Method 2 doesn’t work for you, continue to try Method 3.
Method 3: Check the output device settings for Valorant
You may not hear sound from your monitor, headphones or some other devices. Whatever output device you’re using, you should make sure the output device is set to the device you’re using to listen to Valorant.
