How to Appear Offline in Valorant

Go offline and play peacefully!

Valorant is always fun when playing with your friends. But, there will be times when you want to play the game alone. In such instances, it is better to go offline and continue experiencing the game without any friends pestering you with invite notifications. Riot Games natively does not support any feature to go offline. Still, you can use third-party software like Deceive to achieve your goal.

What is Deceive?

Deceive is a third-party application that allows players to go offline in any Riot Games like League of legends, Legends of Runeterra, or Valorant.

Installing Deceive on your Desktop

You can download Deceive from the official Github page and install it on your PC like any other software. Make sure you are downloading the latest version of the software.

After downloading the software, follow the given steps to set it up.

  • Now, tweak the Target parameter with the word "valorant" at the end.
  • Press Apply and close the tab.
