The Fortnite Item Shop allows you to purchase new cosmetic items, such as skins, gliders and emotes.

Though things in the Item Shop are cosmetic - meaning they won't improve the way you play, or give you or other players a competitive advantage - they are amongst the most discussed and sought-after aspects of the game.

If you're just getting started, our Fortnite Battle Royale tips and tricks can provide some helpful hints.

How the Fortnite Item Shop works, and when the Fortnite Item Shop update time is

Every day, the Fortnite Item Shop is updated with a new stock of items. These items are only available for a 24 hour period, where after then, the store will refresh with an entire new set of things to purchase.

The Fortnite Item Shop update times are as follows:

  • UK: 1:01am (BST)
  • Europe: 2:01am (CEST)
  • East Coast US: 8pm (EDT)
  • West Coast US: 5pm (PDT)

Though items will go out of rotation, they won't be gone forever. However, nor the game or developer Epic Games will say when items will return back on sale, meaning if you really want something, you should give some thought about buying it there and then.

All purchases require V-Bucks, Fortnite's in-game currency. You can get V-Bucks through gameplay - by playing the premium Battle Pass or playing Save the World - or buying them with real world money.
