The Item Shop is a department of Fortnite that provides you with the opportunity of purchasing cosmetics and suit up in your very own fashion. This includes various outfits, gliders, harvesting tools and emotes. These items are merely cosmetical and do not provide you with any competitive benefits in-game. They do, however, enable you to go fighting for that victory looking you’re very best, celebrating with your favorite dance moves.
In the Item Shop, you will find cosmetics for sale on rotation. The shop is divided into featured and daily items. While the featured items are available for a week, the daily items rotate daily. As with weapons, these items are divided by rarity, ranging from uncommon (green) to legendary (orange). Hence, they are priced differently and will appear in the Item Shop with a corresponding frequency.
V-Bucks and Pricing
In order to purchase something from the Item Shop, you will need to get hold of V-Bucks. These can be purchased in the Store using real-world currency or earned for free through quests and daily log-ins. The costs of V-Bucks are as following:
- 1000 V-Bucks: $9.99 / €9.99
- 2500 V-Bucks (+300 Bonus): $24.99 / €24.99
- 6000 V-Bucks (+1500 Bonus): $59.99 / €59.99
- 10000 V-Bucks (+3500 Bonus): $99.99 / €99.99
Obtaining and Equipping items
While some items rotate in and out of the store frequently, others are available for a limited time before they are removed. Make sure to get your hands on that beautiful outfit before it slips through your fingers!
In addition to the Item Shop, you can obtain items through the Battle Pass which can be purchased each season. This Pass will give you exclusive challenges and reward you with both cosmetics and V-Bucks. In order to equip your items, go to the “Locker” menu in the Lobby and double-click the item which you want to equip.
