Elon Musk’s Valorant Champions attendance may not have been as ceremonious, but some Valorant players are still curious if he actually plays the game. 

The Valorant Champions 2023 final was a big event, both in terms of viewership and celebrity attendance. Ben Affleck and Elon Musk surprised the fans at the event with their kids, leaving the attendees star-struck. 

While Ben Affleck entertained multiple interviews and even a backstage tour, Elon Musk was barely seen more than a glimpse at the red carpet and mid-game camera cut where he was booed off the screen. While the fans in the arena weren’t as thrilled about his presence, the online community is wondering if he plays Valorant.

Elon Musk plays many games, but he’s never confirmed if he plays Valorant. The billionaire likely attended the Champions event for his son.

Elon Musk attended the event with his son. While Ben Affleck confirmed he not only plays Valorant but is up to date with all the updates, Elon is an RPG guy. Elon has confirmed many times via Twitter and interviews that he plays games in his free time, but most recently took to Twitter to laud the Diablo 4 creators. 

He earlier called Diablo 4 too easy and said that it doesn’t need skill, proving that he’s certainly an avid gamer who doesn’t mind challenging games. Who knows, his thirst for challenge and high difficulty may draw him to Riot’s FPS, which is reaching new skill ceilings with each new patch. 

However, an increase in Valorant’s popularity among celebrities may tempt him to give it a shot. While it’s difficult for RPG gamers to convert to FPS, Valorant is often an exception, thanks to its attractive visuals and immersive backstory.
