If the option is on “Default” there’s a chance that the software catched the bad settings from you computer and using the wrong input as well as output device.
After you selected the devices run a Mic Test to verify your mic.
Valorant Audio Settings
The last audio setting we’ll cover is in Valorant. In Valorant open up Settings, and Select Audio, then Voice Chat.
