Wondering how many people play Valorant? Well, our handy player count guide has the latest figures for 2022. 

Produced by Riot Games, Valorant captured a lot of the same elements of classic FPS titles like Counter-Strike and Overwatch. This combination has proven incredibly popular amongst players around the world.

Keeping the momentum going for almost two years now, the game continues to thrive. But exactly how many people play Valorant? Here’s everything we know about the active Valorant player count in 2022.

More than 22 million players have jumped into at least one game of Valorant over the past 30 days, based on the available data. This balances out at over 2 million active players per day.

While these numbers are just an estimate, these are seriously impressive numbers for Valorant, especially considering it more than doubles Overwatch’s average player base in 2021.

But, just because it trounces a five-year-old game in viewership doesn’t mean it’s top dog. Here’s how Valorant’s best month yet (October – 22.5 million players) stacks up with other games in the same month, all according to Active Player’s statistics.
