Every game contains bugs and errors, and these issues can appear for various reasons. The problem, be it on the player’s side, or on the game’s side, is an annoyance.

The Reason behind Valorant Error Code 58
The Valorant Error Code 58 is a bit complicated for the average Valorant player to understand. On the official Riot Games support site banner for error codes it is stated that the reason behind Valorant Error Code 58 is “RSOValidationFailure”. This essentially means that the game cannot validate some important information to continue running, so the Valorant Error Code 58 appears.
One reason for the unfunctional validation is if a bad start of the Riot Client occurred. The Riot Client has been known to cause a lot of issues and error codes in the game. So if the Riot Client does not fully process this validation, the Valorant Error Code 58 can appear.
Another reason for the Valorant Error Code 58 might not be even your fault. If the Valorant server is experiencing server issues and problems, that might cause the Valorant Error Code 58 to appear. This happens if the Valorant server does not process the validation of the required information properly.
Knowing why you are getting the Valorant Error Code 58 is key, as next up you will learn how you can fix it.
