The Fortnite Battle Royale Item Shop is picking up speed today. Supersonic and his Superfire glider are (speedily) ready to land on Apollo Island! NFL skins are still available as we’re just hours away from the big game of the year.

Also on offer are the Mecha Team Leader Epic-quality skin and the Mecha Team wrap, plus the Bronto Rare-quality skin, Pterodactyl and Bitemark for a more colourful look.

General Information

The Item Shop in Fortnite Battle Royale is refreshed daily, and offers new cosmetic items for use in the game.

These purchases are strictly decorative, and do not offer any advantage in game.

There are four types of items in the shop:

Skins that change the appearance of the character you control.
Gliders that change the appearance of the parachute you use to descend onto the island,
Harvesting equipment that changes the appearance of the pickaxe your character uses to destroy objects on the map and collect resources.
Emotes are animations that your character can perform on command.
Animations can consist of a simple wave, acrobatics or dances.
Each animation has its own sound effects, and almost all the dances are accompanied by a melody of their own.

The shop is divided into two parts: the Featured Items section, which contains items that are generally more rare, more expensive and typically remain available in the shop for forty-eight hours.

The second is Daily Items. and always contains two skins, two emotes, a glider and a pickaxe. Items in this category are less rare and less expensive, and only remain available in the shop for 24 hours.

Once again the Australian Open tournament will be combined with the Fortnite Summer Smash event. A Pro-Am will take place on Friday — mixing professional players and celebrities for charity — while a solo competition will occur on Saturday to reward the best player of the weekend.
