Valorant installs an anticheat mechanism. This mechanism is installed as a kernel-level driver. This software is run immediatly at system startup with the highest privileges. This software refuses to run in a virtualized environment. This software is closed source (we do not know exactly what it does. The company claims that it is strictly an anti-cheat mechanism. Should you trust them on good faith?). Valorant is made by Riot Games. Riot games is owned by Tencent. Tencent operates within the Chinese governing system. The Chinese governing system can demand data handoffs from companies at any time for any reason.

To me, installing closed-source high-privileged Chinese software "on good faith" does not sound like a terrific idea. Especially considering this is a video game after all.
