What is the Night Market and when is the next one?
The Night Market is something that Riot brought over from League of Legends, originally called ‘Your Shop.’ Essentially, it randomizes six random skins from the game, reducing their in-game price. That discount also varies between 20 to 50 percent.
Originally, aside from duplicates, the skins were purely random, sometimes leading to really common VALORANT skins lining the Night Market. However, Riot Games addressed that by adding the Bad Luck Protection guarantee. This essentially means that if you don’t own every Premium skin in the game, at least two will appear in your Night Market. Plus, you can no longer get two skins for the same weapon in the same Night Market. The only downside to that is that you can’t reroll any of the skins during a Night Market. What you get is what you get until the next Night Market rolls around.
The next Night Market is coming to VALORANT starting on Dec. 7, 2022. The market will stay open for about a month, ending on Jan. 4, 2023. This is longer than usual, with previous Night Markets lasting around 12 days. As for future Night Markets, the previous pattern is one is released per act. So, most likely, the next act will bring another Night Market.
How to access the market in game
In-game, the Night Market will appear as a small card at the top right of the main menu. Now, with the recent re-design in VALORANT, the Night Market might change to a different part of the main menu, so keep an eye on that. Either way, the Market will pop into the main menu from the start of the event until the end.
When you first open it, all the cards represent the skins, with the color around it representing the rarity of the skin. Click on them to reveal the skins and their discounts.
