Riot Games have been closely keeping eyes on their closed beta of Valorant, and it seems like now that more and more players have access to the game, it’s becoming apparent that already there are plenty of cheaters online.
located a VALORANT universe where there were 8873 less cheaters and moved us all into it, please be careful as your bones may've shifted during dimensional travel

Being a game that puts a focus on a team working together, it seems like some players have been exploiting that, but it looks like anti-cheat software is working out rather well. In a recent tweet that was sent out by Phillip Koskinas, the person responsible for creating anti-cheat measures for Riot Games, has announced that Valorant just banned over 8,800 players worldwide. In the same tweet, the Riot Games developer doesn’t express any details on how many that is compared to the total player base.
This is great news for players that actually want to play the game, and it seems like more and more bans will be on the cards.
