Everything there is to know about all the exclusive edition skins that have been released in Valorant so far in 2022.

Valorant is a free-to-play tactical shooter developed by the developers of League of Legends. Similar to League, Riot Games has adopted a “freemium” model to monetize the game. As such, Valorant has no barrier to entry since this is a free-to-play game.

Instead, players can choose to purchase skins, battle passes, and other in-game virtual items to customize their play session. And Riot Games has already stated that they don’t ever intend to sell powerups in Valorant as that may affect the game’s competitive integrity.

The second way to get previously released exclusive edition skin is through the Night Market, which provides random discounts on six randomly selected skins ranging from Select to Ultra edition.
