Fortnite Item Shop Overview
Fortnite Battle Royale might give away various skins and cosmetics with the games Seasonal Battle Pass, but there's another, much quicker way to obtain some of that high-level in-game loot; the Item Shop.
Epic Games popular Battle Royale game might be free, but you'll need to spend if you want to get your hands on these cosmetics.
The item shop is filled with cosmetics – ranging from Uncommon to Legendary – and every night, at 1am BST in the UK, this item shop is refreshed with new items.
Sometimes the shop will release a new collection of as yet unreleased items. This could be new skins, pickaxes', gliders, back bling or even emotes. But more often than not, sometimes it's reselling older items that maybe you didn't buy previously.
You can obtain these items using V-Bucks (details about that further down).
How to get V-Bucks?
As we mentioned, if you want to purchase any of these items in the shop you'll need Fortnite V-Bucks. But how do you get the must-have Fortnite Battle Royale currency?
Well, there are two ways.
The first will take much longer and require you grind through the games daily challenges and Battle Pass tiers to earn yourself V-Bucks along the way. The big problem though is that these rewards are pretty small; especially when you consider one skin could cost as much as 2000 just for the skin.
The other option, which is more instant, is also understandably behind a microtransaction paywall.
The minimum spend is 1,000 V-Bucks for £7.99/$9.99. But you could equally pay for either of the three more expensive tiers:
• £23.99 gets you – 2,500 + a 300 V-Buck bonus
• £54.99 gets you – 6,000 + a 1,500 V-Buck bonus
• £99.99 gets you – 10,000 + a 3,500 V-Buck bonus
Now, before you get all cross at how expensive the above V-Bucks are, it's worth remembering that Fortnite Battle Royale is a FREE game. Any and all items from the shop are purely cosmetic and have no bearing on your enjoyment with the game.
