How Long is a Competitive Valorant Match?

The average match length for a Valorant game is around 30-40 minutes. One-sided games where you can win or lose all 13 rounds instantly can make a standard Valorant match early at around 20 minutes.

Although this applies to Competitive and Unrated, they’re both best out of 13. And Competitive can go into overtime rounds up to 25 rounds if it ends in a 13-13 draw. This means that the absolute maximum match time for a Competitive game can go up to 70 minutes.

What this means is that theoretically, a competitive multiplayer game of Valorant can even go higher than the 40 minutes mark up to 1 hour. And Riot Games has approved this with the longest Valorant match taking over 1 hour and 30-40 minutes in a VCT match between TSM and GenG. Makes you wonder what’s the Valorant pros’ average salary!
