In VALORANT patch 1.14, Riot Games introduced some major updates to VALORANT’s cosmetic store.

Riot usually sells cosmetics items like weapon skins in VALORANT’s official store. And Riot’s free-to-play model with in-game purchases has been really profitable for them. The community seems to really love the skins but despises the price tag.

For the first time ever, Riot will introduce Night Market to VALORANT’s official store. The main purpose of Night Market is to basically offer skins at a discounted price. And the skins can be either deluxe or premium.

How Night Market works

Basically, players can’t select the exact skins that they want a discount on. Instead, each player will get 6 chances to receive a randomly selected Deluxe or Premium skins at a discount.

In short, Riot Games is giving away some skins at a discounted price, but it will be randomized. Pricing of skins in VALORANT has been a pretty heated topic among the VALORANT community. However, most would agree a discounted price for some of the skins in the game especially during the holiday season is a step in the right direction.
