Ever since the beta, Valorant is dominating the Battle Royale genre besides Warzone. However, the game has a long list of errors that users encounter. And although the frequency of errors has diminished since the beta, the error codes still prevail from time to time. Valorant has error codes starting from 0 and goes all the way up to 59. The recent error that’s plaguing the community is the Valorant error code 39. So, what is the error code 39? And can you fix it? Read further to know what you can do about the error in the game.
How to Fix Valorant Error Code 39?
The Valorant error code 39 occurs when there is a problem with the server. It’s not a client-side issue, so you do not have to worry about something going wrong with your system. The Valorant servers could be undergoing maintenance. The error message that accompanies the code is “There was an error connecting to the platform.”
So, what can you do when you encounter the error. The first step when you see error 39 is to check if the servers are undergoing maintenance. You can do this by checking the status of the servers on the official Riot website. Follow the link. For example, at the time of writing this post, there is scheduled maintenance for July 10 2020 and the servers will be down for 4 hours. So, whenever you see the error you can check this page.
If there is a maintenance scheduled, there is nothing you can do about it other than wait for the servers to be back online and then you can play the game. Under such a circumstance, everyone will be unable to play the game and it’s not just you. So, hold tight and play something else in the meantime like Hyper Scape, which is equally awesome.
However, if you are the only one encountering the error or there is no scheduled maintenance then there is some cause of worry as your system might be failing to make a connection with Valorant. The most effective solution is to restore the system to a time when the game was working or uninstall any new software you may have installed. Sometimes restarting the network hardware is sufficient to fix most connectivity problems with the game.
Additionally, you can also visit Twitter to check if it’s a widespread problem, which again indicates a problem with the game and not your devices.
