At time of writing, the Fortnite Battle Hound skin can be found in the in-game store. It costs a hefty 2,000 V Bucks, and is part of the Laoch set. Another Laoch item, the Silver Fang pickaxe, is also available to purchase for 800 V Bucks.

As “Featured Items,” the Battle Hound and Silver Fang cosmetic unlocks will only be available for a limited time. If you’re thinking about buying them, don’t wait too long.

Fortnite Battle Hound: Back Bling Unlock

Despite its 2,000 V Bucks price tag, there is no Fortnite Battle Hound Back Bling unlock included with the outfit. This will be disappointing to some players, as the blue cape would indeed make for a great Back Bling accessory.

It’s possible that Epic Games will make the cape a Back Bling item in a future update. The developers have proven that they’re listening to the community, and if the majority demand a Battle Hound back bling, then it’s likely to happen.

For now, however, dropping 2,000 V Bucks on this skin will only grant you the outfit, with no Back Bling.
