Valorant is a game developed with a first-person tactical shooting approach in which elements of shooting games are used with skills for each player and its objective is for the two competing teams to carry out some objectives on the available maps..
Improvements are constantly being sought in Valorant but this does not mean that it does not present errors and one of these is the error We couldn't install a required dependency, this is an error that appears when we try to start the game and it is an error that is basically caused by Essential game files corrupted or missing from the game installation folder. Another additional failure may be linked to the game's or Riot's anti-cheat system not working properly.
