One of the most interesting things of the closed beta for Valorant is the ability for players to make custom matches to play with others. However, the members of the community have been facing the problem where they cannot leave the custom game they are playing. The good news is that there are some ways you can take to get out of this match if this certain issue arises for you.
So, how to leave Valorant custom game? Now, the bug in question that can cause the issue where players are not able to leave a custom match is where the leave match option does not appear on the menu when you click the settings button in the top left corner of your screen.
The sad news is that leaving the game and going to your desktop will not fix the issue, as the title will just send you back into the match you are trying to leave when you start the game back up. Fortunately, players who run into this problem have a few options they are able to utilize to get out the match they are currently locked in.
The first method that Valorant players take is to go to the cheats section of the in game menu when you press escape in the middle of the match. This one is where you will find a button named “end game phase”. You need to click on this button a few times and it forces the custom match to play through and ultimately ends it, which allows the players to leave the match they have been stuck in. Do not forget to make sure that you have the cheats option enabled for the private match before you begin playing if you want to be able to use this option.
The second option for fixing the issue of not being able to leave a custom game in Valorant is just to wait. Waiting and doing nothing will cause the game to think you are AFK and will eventually stop the private match due to inactivity. You will then be put back at the main menu of the game and be able to play whatever you would like.
The developer of Valorant named Riot Games is likely working on a fix for this bug and will be trying to implement it so that no other players of the game run into this issue. However, the solutions mentioned above are your best to leave on a custom game you no longer want to play but do not have the option to get out of through normal means.
