Wondering if the Night Market is coming back to Valorant in September 2022? We've got you covered.

Valorant's Night Market is a semi-regular event, often popping up unexpectedly to give players the chance to nab deals on an exclusive selection of cosmetics. For the avid Valorant player and cosmetics hunter, the Night Market is strictly an event not to be missed.

The last Night Market went live just recently on July 20, and ended two weeks later on Aug. 2. With August now just about done, many players are likely wondering if we can expect the Night Market to return in September. Here's what you need to know.

Is Valorant Night Market Arriving in September 2022?

Unfortunately, at the time of publication, there have yet to be any leaks or announcements suggesting when exactly the next Valorant Night Market will be arriving.

However, the next Night Market is expected to arrive in about two to three weeks, either in the second, third or fourth week of September.

New Night Markets tend to drop between three and five weeks after the start of a new act, either on a Wednesday or a Thursday. Valorant Episode 5, Act 2 was released on Aug. 23.

The previous Night Market dates were:

  • Feb. 11, 2021 – Feb. 23, 2021
  • April 8, 2021 – April 20, 2021
  • June 2, 2021 – June 15, 2021
  • July 28, 2021 – Aug. 10, 2021
  • Sept. 29, 2021 – Oct. 12, 2021
  • Dec. 9, 2021 – Dec. 21, 2021
  • Feb. 9, 2022 – Feb. 22, 2022
  • April 6, 2022 – April 19, 2022
  • May 18, 2022 – May 31, 2022
  • July 29, 2022 – Aug. 2, 2022

Each Night Market tends to run for roughly two weeks at a time.

Although it will be a while until the next one arrives, it should be worth the wait considering that the Titanmail, Neptune and Xenohunter collections were added to the Night Market's eligible skins pool at the start of the Episode 5 Act 2.

The skins eligible to appear are any that are part of a collection that has been released at least two acts prior to the one the Night Market was opened in.


UPDATE 9/9/22: Per @ValorLeaks on Twitter, the Night Market is set to return to Valorant on Sept. 28, and run until Oct. 11.
