Valorant's Night Market is returning on May 18, 2022.
Riot Games re-introduces the Night Market every eight weeks and players get access to a fresh selection of skins every time.
The Night Market will make an appearance this year in February, April, June, August, October and December.

Valorant’s Night Market is one of the best ways to get premium cosmetics at a discount. Riot Games modeled the feature after “Your Shop” from League of Legends and it has allowed players to get their hands on expensive skins at hefty discounts over the past year. If you are wondering when Valorant’s Night Market is returning, you are in luck. The Night Market is expected to return in just a few weeks.

When is the Valorant Night Market coming back?

The Night Market makes an appearance every eight weeks and it is returning on May 18. Players are expected to be able to grab skins at discounted prices for around 12 days, unlike the annual Night Market which was available during the holiday season in December which lasted for four weeks instead of two weeks.

Once the Night Market is available, you will be able to view your selection of skins via an indicator from Valorant’s main menu. The Night Market does not include recent skin releases so don’t hold your breath for any skin collections that have released in the past two months.

How to get skins I want from the Night Market?

Unfortunately, the skins that are presented to you are account specific and there is no fixed rotation for any cosmetics. The randomness of the Valorant Night Market can be frustrating and players are unable to get their favorite skins despite waiting for months. In League of Legends, the skins presented to each player is dependent on account activity but there are no such systems in place for players.

The saving grace is that the Night Market returns frequently and you need to wait just eight weeks before getting a fresh selection of skins to choose from. A re-roll feature would be a welcome change but Riot Games has not hinted at any plans to introduce re-rolling the skins using premium currency.
