Valorant ‘Purchase Failed Error’ Keeps Players From Buying Battle Pass or New Skins

by in Valorant | Oct, 13th 2020

What is the most important part of any online game? That’s right; it’s cosmetics! If you don’t look cool, you can’t win. That’s just the way of the world. However, Valorant has announced a new, awful bug in the NA/LATAM/BR regions. The Valorant Purchase Failed bug prevents players from buying skins or the Battle Pass as of this moment.

It’s not the first or last bug, but it’s a frustrating one for people trying to spend money! However, we do feel that this is not a bug that will stick around too long. It comes hot on the heels of the Mumbai game servers’ announcement, so at least there are some positives to come out of Valorant’s Twitter account right now.

Can Anything Be Done?

Unfortunately, the answer is a resounding “no.” Valorant’s devs are looking into the bug, but as of right now, there’s no official word or announcement other than a brief Tweet. If you’re getting this “Purchase Failed” bug in Valorant, relax. We imagine it’ll be fixed soon. After all, they don’t want to see players no spend money. This will, without a doubt, be a priority one bug fix.

This isn’t the first time this bug has cropped up, either. We recall it happening during the closed beta in June. There wasn’t a fix then, either. Instead, all you could do was re-log and hope for the best. It makes us wonder if we’re going to see a purchase failed error come up again and again as Valorant’s dev cycle goes on. For now, all we can do is wait for the official word from Riot Games that they have it fixed. Make sure to keep an eye on the Valorant and Esports Talk Twitter pages.
