Valorant, Riot Games’ new tactical shooter, works just fine when you’re matched with random players, but it truly comes into its own when you’re squared up with friends. To actually get a game with your pals going, though, you’ll need to understand how to join a party in Valorant. Here’s the low down.
How to Join a Party in Valorant
In Valorant, you can either request to join a party or create one yourself and have others join it. Before we go any further, make sure you’ve read our guide on how to add friends to the game since if you’ve not done that then nothing here will make much sense to you.
To join a party, you’ll need to click on your Social tab and locate the name of the individual whose game you want to join. Right-click on that person’s name and you’ll see a few different options.
In the below image, we didn’t have any friends online at the time, so the only option is to invite someone. However, if there was someone online there would be an option that reads “Request to join,” and that’s the one you’re looking for.
Once you’ve hit that button, the individual you’ve requested to join will be sent a notification for them to accept. You’ll then join their party and whatever game they select to play you’ll also be in the same server from then on.
Here’s a quick step-by-step breakdown:
- First, add the friend with whom you want to play with by inputting their Riot ID and tagline. This is done via the Social tab, which you can find in the top-right corner of the screen.
- Once they are on your friend list, access the social tab, look up their name, and then right-click to find the option “Request to join party.”
