The Night Market in VALORANT is an event that rolls around on occasion, helping players to get deep discounts on weapon skins, so knowing exactly when the next one will is scheduled to occur in 2023 is crucial.

Skins in VALORANT vary in their rarity, with lower-tier skins making small changes to the weapons and higher-tier skins overhauling them with new models and special effects. In the game, these rare skins can be quite pricey, but the Night Market in VALORANT gives players a chance to grab them at cheaper prices.

So, if you want to know if a Night Market is currently occurring, or want to know when the next one is, we've got you covered with a breakdown of the shopping event in VALORANT for October. 

What is the Night Market in VALORANT?

The VALORANT Night Market is an irregular event that rolls around at an interval of about four to seven weeks, typically during each act. During the event, you can get all kinds of discounts on weapons skins - as long luck is on your side.

During the VALORANT Night Market, you'll roll six skins in the shop that can get a discount (you can only get new discounts by purchasing one of these skins first).

These discounts can go as low as 40% off the normal price, so it’s definitely worth waiting on the Night Market - especially as one may pop up soon.

VALORANT will also make it quite clear when the Night Market is running (which typically runs for around two weeks at a time), with advertisements displayed in both the sidebar and the launcher. 

When is the next VALORANT Night Market in 2023?

As confirmed on VALORANT's Twitter account, the next Night Market will start on October 11, running through until October 30 - meaning you'll have plenty of time to pick up the discounted goods on offer.

This Night Market will run for the rest of Episode 7 Act II, taking us into the final act of this episode nicely.

When we learn more about the Night Market's dates for future releases, we'll be sure to update you accordingly right here.

How to find and use the Night Market in VALORANT

As mentioned earlier, it's quite clear in-game when the Night Market is running in VALORANT, and it's just as easy to find, too. At the top right-hand side of your screen alongside the settings icon will be a small playing card with a diamond shape in the centre - click that and you're in!

When a new Night Market first launches, you'll also be presented with an option in the top-left of your display that will take you to the same screen as the steps above. Either of these methods can be used to access the shop.

From here, you'll be shown a selection of different cards, which you can then turn over in order to see which weapon skins from individual tiers are on offer for purchase.
