The Valorant Night Market is one of the most coveted features that players eagerly look forward to at all times. It is one of the cheapest methods of purchasing new weapon skins directly from the game but this offer seldom arrives and it is also for a limited duration.
To make matters worse, the six skins that the Valorant Night Market offers are generated completely at random, varying for all players, who have no control over what they receive.
If lucky, a player might get one or two skins from their wish list but this is a rare occurrence in itself. However, it remains to be the best place to get skins of all rarity and types, at heavily discounted prices.
In case you are wondering when the next Valorant Night Market could arrive, luckily it is less than a week away according to official information released by the developers.
Valorant Night Market (October 2023): Complete Details
For all those new to Valorant or who have not played other titles by Riot Games, the Night Market is based on Your Shop from the popular MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) title, League of Legends.
The model attracted a lot of attention and due to its popularity, it made its way from one title to the other, the feature of players getting random skins at discounted prices simply being replicated.
As per official information released earlier today on 4th October, the next Valorant Night Market will go live on 11th October and stay around for the next 19 days.
- Valorant Night Market Release Date: 11th October
- Valorant Night Market End Date: 30th October
- Valorant Night Market Duration: 19 Days
What makes the Valorant Night Market so special is the fact that it comes around every eight weeks, which is equivalent to 56 days or roughly every two months, but lasts for just about three weeks.
This means that the actual duration between two Valorant Night Markets is almost 11 weeks or 77 days, adding to its value and turning it into something that community members are always excited about.
How Does the Valorant Night Market Work?
The Valorant Night Market is a temporary shop that comes with six random cards of different rarities which are unique to every account. Each card contains a weapon or melee skin and can be unlocked by a player by simply tapping it.
There is some Bad Luck Protection in place and you will get at least two Premium Edition (PE) skins to choose from if you don’t already have every single PE skin in the game. You will also not get more than two skins for the same weapon.
Once the Night Market is available, you will be able to view your selection of skins via an indicator in Valorant’s main menu. The Night Market does not include recent skin releases so don’t hold your breath for any skin collections that were released in the past two months.
The timing of the current Valorant Night Market is great but it might face competition from the recently released Gaia’s Vengence 2.0 which comes with premium weapon skins that are being released in continuation to the previously similar bundle.
