Valorant: How to Forfeit

how to forfeit in valorant

Valorant‘s popularity has skyrocketed since its launch back in 2020, and it’s easy to see why. The synergy of tactical gunplay and a variety of special abilities makes for a unique FPS experience that demands skill, teamwork, and clever strategy. Not every game goes according to plan, though, and if you find yourself in over your heads in a competitive, ranked game, sometimes there’s just no choice but to give up. In this guide, we’ll talk you through how to surrender and forfeit in Valorant.

What the Command to Surrender in Valorant Is

To forfeit in Valorant and surrender to the enemy, simply complete the following steps:

  1. To forfeit in Valorant, type “/ff” “forefeit,” “concede” or “surrender” in the chat. The chat can be opened by pressing Enter on your keyboard.

  2. Doing this will start a Surrender Vote on your team. You and your teammates will then have to vote either “/yes” (F5) or “/no” (F6) to confirm they do or don’t want to surrender the match. You’ll need all five players on your team to admit defeat if you want to forfeit in Valorant.

Remember, you can only /FF and surrender after the fifth round of the game. If you try and do it before this, it’ll simply roll the vote onto the next round. If you have already called a surrender that failed you will get one more opportunity after the pistol round of the next half.

What Happens in the Event of a Successful Forfeit?

If you or the opposing team forfeit in Valorant, the winning team will simply get the remaining wins they need to reach 13. The losing team will have the opposite done to them, ensuring that forfeiting is fair to both teams involved and there’s no way to try and game the competitive system by surrendering early on.
