VALORANT may be a free-to-play game, but its monetization model is based on skins and cosmetic items. There’s more than a single way to unlock these items and paying for them is often the fastest.

It’s entirely possible to follow a budget-friendly approach while collecting skins—and that’s where the Night Market comes in. The Night Market allows players to pick up cosmetic items at a discount. The skins showcased in the Night Market will be picked at random, and players will need to get lucky to land their favorite skins. Players will have a choice of up to six skins from a variety of bundles for different weapons.

Even though you won’t be able to reroll any of the items, you’ll be able to get a second chance since the Night Market returns every two months.

When will the Night Market come back?

Riot only unveils the Night Market dates a few days before it arrives, at most a week before. If you’re wondering when the next Night Market will be, take a look at the previous Night Market dates to get a good idea of when the next one could arrive.
