What is in the Fortnite item shop for today?
Legendary Punk rocker Power Chord  (complete with guitar back bling) is the highlight at V2,000.
Her Stage Dive glider, Anarchy Axe pickaxe and Rock Out emote will all set you back V800 each, meaning you’ll be potentially shelling out V4,400 – or around £40.
The Uncommon Grill Sergeant makes his first appearance today, and is a decidedly cheaper option at just V800 for those who want to rock the Durr Burger flipper look.
Rounding off today’s offerings are Recon Scout and Moniker at V1,200 a piece — it’s Recon Scout’s first appearance for over five months too.
Waterworks (V200) emote and Googly glider and the Studded Axe complete the day’s accessories.

What is the Fortnite items shop and what’s in it?
The item shop is an online store where players can purchase cosmetic objects to use in-game.
It includes outfits, gliders, harvesting tools and weapons priced according to the rarity: Uncommon, rare, epic or legendary.
Gamers use V-Bucks, which can be purchased for real life money, to pay for the items which have their own expiry dates on the store.
3 Shoot-em-up Fortnite is taking over the world
What is Fortnite and does the video game have an age rating certificate?
Fortnite is an online video game set in a dystopian world where 98% of Earth’s population suddenly disappears, living conditions become difficult, and zombie-like creatures begin the roam the Earth – the player is among the remaining 2% whose job it is to survive.
After the apocalypse, ‘survivor bases’ were set-up and each player is in charge of looking after these bases before trying to find a way to return Earth to normal.
Fortnite also includes a mode called Battle Royale, in which 100 online players are put in a battlefield to fight until death until one player remains.
The video game welcomes players aged 12 and above.

While there is no exact figure on how many children play Fortnite, the game has so far pulled in an audience of over 3.4 million players.
Many parents are concerned about the harmful effects that the long-playing duration and violent content is having on their children.
A thread on forum site Reddit summed up concerns, with one parent saying that while the game “promotes strategic thinking and cooperation,” their child has started to “slam doors when he used to be pretty laid back.”
