The arrival of the Night Market to the Valorant store is something that fans look forward to.
The Valorant cosmetic team goes up and beyond when it comes to designing the shooter’s weapon cosmetics. Some of the more premium content, with their own VFX and finishers, make owning a Valorant weapon skin worthwhile.
Having said that, Valorant cosmetics can be incredibly expensive. Average players often hesitate to stray from their battle pass unlockables and actually invest in a bundle set from the store.
As the Night Market offers players a selection of 6 cosmetic skins with their prices significantly slashed, the event has grown to be highly anticipated by the community.
The Night Market is back again in Valorant Episode 2 Act 2. In a recent tweet, Riot Games officially announced that the event will be taking place from April 7 to April 20.
Valorant’s Night Market and the recent controversy
Valorant’s Night Market has often found itself in the midst of controversy. There have been instances where players felt that the random skin selections that the event offered were not varied and seldom carried any quality cosmetics.
The randomized aspect led to unforeseen consequences, and it ultimately pushed Riot Games to bring a slight overhaul to the system.
Valorant devs added some much-needed quality-of-life updates in February, which will significantly improve the variety of cosmetic selection in the market every time the event drops by.
Players can access the Night Market from the Valorant menu screen. It will look like a small card and will give off an occasional sparkle.
It’s important to keep in mind that the cosmetics selected in the Night Market are final, and players are not allowed a re-roll.
