All VALORANT Twitch streams will start dropping closed beta access as long as they are actually playing the game. The drops will be running 24/7 but this won't affect the number of drops. The drops can happen even if you are offline.

VALORANT's dev team learned some lessons from the game's closed beta and now, as a result, all VALORANT Twitch streams can drop closed beta access (as long as they are playing VALORANT).

The closed beta drops will still be running 24/7 but this change will not increase the number of drops, just that you can watch any VALORANT stream to be eligible.

Please note that drops happen at all times (even when you’re offline), but only for players located in Europe, Canada, United States, Turkey, Russia and CIS countries. This will be based on your Riot account’s home-based region, which you can check by logging into the account and seeing what is listed under country/region.

Those located in a region that doesn't have a closed beta will need to arm themselves with patience as the team is working to get the closed beta released in new territories. Brazil, LATAM, and Korea are coming up next but no concrete date has yet been given.

Things that have happened since the closed beta launched:

  • The dev team increased the current closed beta server loads by +25 per cent to keep up with the demand and are ramping them up even more.
  • They went through a few thousand of the most engaged VALORANT stream viewers and manually gave them access as a thank you.
  • A number of account sellers have already been banned and the team is actively tracing more.
