What is the Fortnite Item Shop?
The Fortnite Item Shop changes on a Daily basis adding a few new items. There are various rarities for the items in the shop, for example, you may encounter:
- Legendary Items
- Epic Items
- Rare Items
- Uncommon Items
- Dark Series Items
- Slurp Series Items
- Magma Series Items
- Gaming Series Items
- Icon Series Items
Each item category has a different cost in V-BUCKS, the in-game virtual currency used in Fortnite which can be purchased with real money in the V-BUCKS tab when you’re in the lobby.
Aside from the categories above, you may find Bundles and Packs in the Item Shop. Those are special promotions that usually last longer than a day. They could either be seasonal (for example the ‘Tis The Season” Christmas pack, or the Fortnite – Dark Reflections Pack).
Some of the bundles can be purchased only directly with real money, instead of V-BUCKS.
The Item Shop Daily resets every day and items from the previous day can no longer be bought until they rotate again in the shop which could be anything from 30 days to 1 year or even never (rarely).
The seasonal items, like the Fortnitemares cosmetics and the Christmas cosmetics, only rotate during the Winter / Halloween time.
