Edit: this looks like a game- you May need Steam, Lutris, Origin or some other software, as well.
According to the below article from June of 2020, Valorant is not supported on Linux and its anti-cheat system is not compatible with with it either. At this time, it may not be possible to play this game on Linux.
Wow, great (and fast) research, kabuki-kai
Unfortunately, Wine is not fully compatible with Riot Vanguard, the game’s (often controversial) anti-cheat system.
Without going into specifics, Riot Vanguard has been designed to run at the ring 0 or kernel level of Windows PCs. It was not designed for any other platform — So while it may be possible to get the game running, without Vanguard being fully operational, it would never be able to connect to official matchmaking servers. For a competitive online shooter, this fact alone means Valorant is effectively unplayable on Linux.
My niece plays this. I tried to install this on Zorin for her. No go. Tried both POL 32 and 64 bit.
