Valorant is a first-person tactical shooter that has grown incredibly popular in the short time that it was released. It is developed and published by Riot Games, the same company that developed League of Legends. There are many game modes in Valorant but the most popular is still the classic 5v5 game mode where two teams with 5 players each can win the round through either defeating all of the opposing team or fulfilling their own objective which is defusing the “spike” or letting it go off.
As an online multiplayer first-person shooter game, the importance of having a low latency is incredibly crucial. If you’re playing on high ping then what you’re seeing on your screen is delayed from what is actually happening in the game causing you to miss all of your shots and lose the game. To effectively reduce your latency, you would need the help of a Valorant proxy.
A Valorant proxy enables you to change your normal internet service provider connection to a stronger and faster proxy connection. This is also extremely helpful if you live in a country that doesn’t have a Valorant server located in it as you can connect to a country that does have one. This effectively minimizes lag so you can play at your best potential.
The best Valorant proxies would be either datacenter proxies or residential proxies, depending on what you want. If you value speed and want a faster internet connection, then datacenter proxies are what’s best for you. If you want total anonymity and full protection of your online identity then residential proxies are your best choice.
Let’s configure your Valorant proxy settings.
Note: Valorant will automatically copy your operating system’s proxy settings.
How To Use Proxies With Valorant
To set up proxies in Windows, simply search for “Proxy Settings” in your windows search bar and open the search result.
You are then given two options to choose from: Automatic proxy setup or Manual proxy setup. If you want windows to automatically detect your proxy settings, choose the first option. Choose the second option if you want to utilize a specific ip address and port number.
If you chose the first option, then:
- Turn on Automatically detect Settings
- Turn on Use setup script
- Enter the script address
- Click Save
If you chose the second option, then:
- Turn on Use a proxy server
- Input both server address and port number
- If you have any addresses you would like to visit without a proxy, enter them here
- Turn on Don’t use the proxy server for local addresses check box if you want to access a local server without a proxy
- Click Save
Congratulations! You have now finished configuring a Valorant proxy server.
