What Time Does the Night Market Start in Valorant & How Does It Work?

Here’s everything you need to know about Valorant’s next Night Market and when it updates.

There’s no doubt that many of Valorant’s hardcore players absolutely love weapon skins, so if you’re wondering what time the Night Market starts in Valorant and how it works then you’re in the right place. Indeed, Valorant’s weapon skins don’t come cheap, so you’ll be pleased to know that there’s a new sale on the horizon during the game’s most recent Act.

What Time Does the Night Market Start

The Valorant Night Market occurs once every Act. Here’s a look at previous Night Market dates:

  • February 11, 2021 – February 23, 2021
  • April 8, 2021 – April 20, 2021
  • June 2, 2021 – June 15, 2021
  • July 28, 2021 – August 10, 2021
  • September 29, 2021 – October 12, 2021
  • December 9, 2021 – December 21, 2021
  • February 9, 2022 – February 22, 2022
  • April 6, 2022 – April 19, 2022
  • May 18, 2022 – June 1, 2022
  • July 20, 2022 – August 2, 2022

With the launch of Patch 5.05, we know the next Night Market will arrive in 2 weeks’ time, Sept. 28, and last until October 11. Well, that’s if you’re in the US. It’s a little bit later for those in Europe. So, what time does the Night Market actually start? Since Riot Games typically initiates the start of a Night Market at the shop reset time, you should see it at 5PM PT or 8PM ET. If you’re a European player you won’t see it in your shop until 1AM early this morning.

While you wait for it, why not check out Twinfinite’s recent feature about 10 skins nobody wants to see in their Night Market!

How Does the Night Market Work?

When Does the Night Market Refresh in Valorant

Valorant’s Night Market is a once-per-act weapon skin sale that randomly discounts six skins by various percentages. The Night Market that you receive will not refresh — you are stuck with the skins you have. After 12 days, the Night Market will disappear and will not return until the next Act (in about two months’ time) when you will get a totally different lineup, so make sure you pick up any skins you like before they return to full price.

As you can see in the example above, you’ll also randomly be allocated skins of different rarity levels — ours was very lucky, indeed, with five purples and a legendary gold!

Unfortunately, you won’t always get such a great selection and oftentimes the skins aren’t going to be to your liking. Again, it’s totally random, as are the percentages of discount for each one.

Do note that your normal store rotation won’t ever include the skins in your Night Market, so you won’t have to worry about double-ups.

Until then, that’s everything you should need to know about what time the Valorant Night Market starts and how it works. For more useful tips and information on the game, search Twinfinite.
