Valorant‘s Night Market is one of the game’s best ways of scoring new skins, so here’s what it is, the 2023 schedule, and when the next Night Market drops.

One of Riot Games’ best additions to Valorant is the Night Market, the rotating bi-monthly store that offers players a random selection of awesome new skins at reduced prices.

Inspired by League of Legends’ “Your Shop”, the feature has become an event for Future Earth fighters across the globe with many on the edge of their seats awaiting its in-game return.

But just what is the Night Market? And when is the next one? Here’s everything you need to know about the Valorant Night Market, including the dates, schedule, and how to access it.

When is the next Valorant Night Market? Dates & Schedule (2023)

Valorant recently confirmed that the next Valorant Night Market for Episode 6 Act 1 will be returning on February 15, 2023, and will be available until February 27, 2023.

Unlike last Act’s Night Market when the event was available for almost four weeks, this edition will only be available for 12 days. With that in mind, make sure to save up on your Valorant points before the Night Market goes live.

Where to get Valorant Night Market

The Night Market can be found in the top right-hand corner of the game’s opening screen when it is available in Valorant. It’s signified by a little card logo that sparkles to catch your attention.

Simply click this icon and you’ll be given access to all of the discounted goodies. All you have to do is turn over the cards and that’ll tell you what skin is on offer as well as the percentage discount.

Additionally, the color of the card’s background and the little shape in the bottom right-hand corner will indicate the tier of skin that this is. Unsure which is which? Check out our Valorant skin guide for further details on skin tiers.

What is the Valorant Night Market?

Your Night Market haul will look like this.

The Valorant Night Market is a rotating store that drops at random in-game once during every Act. On offer are six different gun skins which are offered to players at a discounted price. Importantly, the skins are entirely randomized.

However, due to particularly scathing criticisms of the feature‘s first run back in December 2020, Riot implemented a Bad Luck Protection guarantee to make sure you don’t walk away disappointed.

If you don’t own every Premium Edition skin then you will receive at least two Premium skins in your pool. Additionally, you can no longer get two skins for the same weapon to increase the variety on offer.

Can I reroll my skins?

Once you have rolled a skin in the Night Market you cannot change them. While this is a feature that fans have been expressing interest in for some time, Riot has not implemented this.

However, now that it’s clear that the feature will be recurring, getting a bad run of skins will be a little less painful than if it was a one-off event.
