Can you play Valorant on Apple devices?

Valorant is one of the most popular and played multiplayer shooter games since its release in 2020. Being a tactical shooter game focused on esports, Riot Games has released the game solely on the PC platform like CounterStrike: Global Offensive. Now, being on a PC title, many gamers doubt whether the game is available to play on other popular OS like macOS. As of now, the game is officially available only on the Windows platform. But, you can experience Valorant on macOS using a third-party application like Boot Camp.

Boot Camp is a third-party application/software that allows mac users to install Windows on their system. You can find the Boot Camp Assistant in the Utility folder under the Application section. You can always follow the official installation procedure given by Apple if you find the setup process complex. Once done, you can install Valorant from the official Riot Games website. Remember, improper setup of Boot Camp will lead to problems with your SSD. So, be careful and follow all the instructions from the manual while installing.

Will Valorant run smoothly on macOS?

The answer to the question entirely depends upon the system configuration at your disposal. A system with 4GB of memory or more can run any graphics-oriented program on Boot Camp. So, anything above 4GB can vastly improve your gameplay experience.

How to check the specs of your Mac?

To know your system configuration, click on the apple logo in the main menu in the top left corner. Select the "About This Mac" option and choose the More Info button in the next window. A new box will be available in front of you with all your system configurations.
