Valorant Error Code: Van-81

The client asks you to restart your game in order to resolve the existing error by re-collecting the error logs and files in order to fix the problem. Because it’s just a connection error, which means Valorant isn’t able to establish a stable connection with the server, we’ll ignore it. I recommend you check your internet connection, or else, if the internet is good, just restart your PC to resolve this error.
