- TPM 2.0 is required to play Valorant on Windows 11, as you probably already know.
- Secure Boot is also required if you want to try out Riot’s newest game.
- However, there may be times when you must manually activate these security measures.
- The battle against online cheaters is the primary reason behind Riot Games’ decision.
Despite the fact that Windows 11 was launched earlier this month, there is still a lot of uncertainty about it, and one of the major problems is the new OS’s TPM 2.0 need to defend against firmware assaults.
While it is possible to get around this security feature in order to run Windows 11, Riot Games and Valorant have already started enforcing it, thus PCs running Windows 11 without TPM 2.0 will be unable to run Valorant.
There is no Secure Boot, TPM, or Valorant.
Some players are reporting that when they attempt to play Valorant, they get error messages stating that the current version of Riot’s anti-cheat program Vanguard needs both TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot enabled.
Players are immediately booted out of the game after being warned.
The primary reason for this is because the Trusted Platform Module firmware system makes it much more difficult for cheaters to cheat, since cheaters who are banned will not be able to fake a new hardware ID right away.
Given how beneficial TPM 2.0 is for developers, it’s conceivable that the TPM 2.0 requirement for Valorant won’t be limited to Windows 11, since Riot is capable of enforcing it on Windows 10.
Will Valorant still function if I enable Secure Boot?
The answer is yes, and you should think about doing so before even attempting to play the game.
Simply open your Command Prompt as administrator and type mbr2gpt, then press enter. Your disk should now be converted to gpt without losing any data.
Experts predict that more and more games will be played only if the computer in question has such security measures activated.
According to the current trend, we are heading towards a more secure internet age, and we won’t be able to evade these security measures indefinitely.
