Although Valorant's initial entry barrier is super low, with the game being free-to-play, if you want to click heads in style, purchasing premium skins is your best bet. Of course, they're usually quite pricey. This is where the Night Market comes in.
Night Market is Riot's way of offering small (or much larger, if you're lucky) discounts on some of the game's most luxurious cosmetics. These discounts are available for a fixed period of time, with little to no prior announcement from the developers.
There are some rules to the madness, so let's break it down.

When is the Next Valorant Night Market?
Riot has officially revealed the dates for the next Valorant Night Market, and it will run from August 9 to 26.
What is a Valorant Night Market?
Night Markets is a virtual pop-up store with five different skins at a discounted price. Valorant skins are divided into tiers depending on their cost.
The skin tiers are as follows:
- Select Edition
- Deluxe Edition
- Premium Edition
- Ultra Edition
- Exclusive Edition
Sadly, if you're expecting skins like Elderflame to show up, you're out of luck, as these have been barred from ever appearing in a Night Market.
Another caveat of Night Markets is that no collections (that are eligible) will show up if they were released in one of the two acts before that Market's release.
