How to Fix Valorant Update Stuck at 45 Percent

There are several ways you can fix the Valorant update getting stuck at 45 percent. First off, you need to check whether your internet connection is working normally and at a sufficient speed. Also, make sure that you have the latest version of your operating system downloaded and installed. The next step is to disable the Windows Firewall. Open the Start menu and search for Windows Defender Firewall and click it. Find the option to turn it off on the left, click it, and press Save. Check whether the download will work now, and don’t forget to turn the firewall back on later. Or you can add the Valorant client to the list of allowed apps, whatever works best for you.

Another step that can help fix the Valorant update getting stuck at 45 percent is to turn off your antivirus. Or uninstall it completely, because let’s be honest, those things haven’t worked properly in years. Also, open the Taskbar and end MSI Afterburner, RivaTuner, and Discord. Last, but not least, you can delete VGK and VGC in the Command Prompt. You have to run it as the administrator and enter the prompts “sc delete vgk” and press enter, then “sc delete vgc” and hit enter again. If none of those work, well, then I can only direct you to address your complaints directly to Riot Games. Of course, if you have any other fixes that you know of, feel free to let us know in the comments.
