How to Whisper in VALORANT

Send private messages to one teammate that you don’t want everyone to know. Be nice.

VALORANT is a very strategic game that requires a balance between aim, firepower and strategy. While you might get a lot of kills being a solo player, it is nearly impossible to win matches without a well-executed strategy against a formidable opponent. As such, communication with teammates becomes extremely important in VALORANT. You can use voice chat or team chat to convey messages, but sometimes you need to whisper something to a player to discreetly send a message. Here’s how to Whisper in VALORANT.

  1. During the match, open the chat text- box via CTRL+Enter. 
  2. Type the name of the recipient. Make sure to spell the account name properly. 
  3. Once you enter the message, hit Enter to send the message. 

It is important to keep your message short and to the point. This prevents the recipient from being bombarded with a lot of text distracting him from the game.

If you want to go back to Team Chat or All Chat, you can simply hit Tab while the chat box is open. Tab allows you to cycle through the various types of messages.
