Looking for Valorant keys for sale? Think twice, Riot will ban you

Valorant keys for sale

Those Valorant beta key drops on Twitch aren't dropping as you've expected them to, right? You're not alone, many gamers are desperately hoping for that notification to pop up and finally join the closed beta. Touted as one of the most promising shooters of recent years, Valorant is in a stage where Riot has to slowly but surely increase the number of slots, in order to keep the servers stable and improve on the gameplay. This is prompting some players to look around for Valorant keys for sale, trying to circumvent the official limitations and play the game.

A quick Valorant beta key eBay search brings up tons of results, with prices ranging between $40 and $300. Some sellers promise “instant delivery,” which may come as a tempting aspect for some players to reach out for their wallets. Well, don't.

Valorant keys for sale ban

Riot Games has officially addressed this subject, saying that it has banned “a pile” of Valorant accounts. Here is what the tweet says:

“We've banned a pile of VALORANT closed beta account sellers and botters to free up more entitlements. Tracking more. Don't buy accounts, you might lose them!”

This comes as a surprise for absolutely no one, because buying your way into the Valorant beta, or any other closed beta for that matter, puts a nice big target on your head. You'll waste a reasonable amount of money spent on a useless Valorant key, and probably get a bit frustrated for being locked out of the game.

If you think this through, Valorant's beta key system requires you to connect your account with Twitch, which makes it safer from scams such as this. Since the key drops on Twitch and Riot keeps a log of every account, purchasing a key from someone else is surely going to raise a lot of red flags.

So, remember to ignore that urge to search for Valorant keys for sale, because that isn't going to turn out great.
