Fix – Valorant Health bar & Ability, Map, HUD not showing
To fix this issue, you have to go through certain steps. I am sharing what I did to get rid of this issue. These solutions are suggested by a Reddit user, and they worked for me. Hopefully, it will also work for you.
Solution 1: Turn Off Hide User Interface Option in Valorant
Yes, Valorant now officially provides options to completely disable the user interface. Previously you could disable crosshair and stats from the Valorant Gameplay. Now, you can turn on/off HUD easily.

2. In General Settings, scroll down and find the Other section.
3. Now, look for the “Hide User Interface In Game” option.
4. Make sure this option is turned off.
Else, Valorant Health Bar, Ability, Map, and other Player details will not appear.
Solution 2: Change display mode to Windowed Fullscreen
There are three display modes are in Valorant Game. You have to switch to “Windowed Fullscreen”.
1. Press the Esc key to open the left-side menu. Click on Settings.
2. Click on “Video”.
3. In Display mode, select “Windows Fullscreen”. And, click on Apply.
Solution 3: Start and Restart a Custom Game
After changing the display mode to “Windowed Fullscreen”, you have to start a custom game and go into it alone.
1. Click on Play > Custom Game.
2. Click on start.
3. “Teams are not full” notice will appear, click on “Start Match”.
The game will get started, just pick your agent.
If still, the Health bar/ ability HUD not appearing then follow the next steps.
For some users, closing the game from the task manager solved the issue. Well, you just need to close the game completely. And, once the game get restart, the problem will get resolved.
1. Press the Esc key, and click on Valorant Icon from the top left corner.
2. Click on “Exit to Desktop”.
Solution 4: End Valorant Task Manager Processes
Make sure the game is completely closed. Do open task manager. (Press Windows + X, and from the WinX menu, click on “Task Manager”.)
Click on Processes, and look for the game process. (If Valorant or Riot Launcher is running, then, right-click on it and end the process.)
That’s it, start Valorant Game and this time do play a normal game. And, Valorant Health bar/ ability HUD start showing.
