What is in the Fortnite Item Shop on July 8, 2021?


The main new addition to the Fortnite Item Shop homepage today is Batman, the Caped Crusader himself. Of course, it’s not the first time he’s been in Fortnite, but today his brand-new armored skin headlines the in-game store. Batman first arrived in the game in late 2019, as part of the Welcome to Gotham special event. His skins have remained in and around the game ever since, but today’s skin is completely new.

Called the Armored Batman Zero skin, it’s got luminescent eyes and a metal-clad body, like his appearance in The Dark Knight Returns. Alongside the skin, there’s also a new axe and glider. We’ve got the Batarang axe and Batman’s Exo-Glider, both of which complement the rugged new look. The skin will set you back 1,500 V-Bucks, which is around $19.99, based on the cheapest V-Bucks bundle.

Elsewhere in the Item Shop today, there’s plenty of other, Batman-free items. The much-loved Toon Meowscles bundle is back in-game, which has remained popular since its release in May of this year. It comes with the skin, the Ten-Ton Toon-Bells axe, the Toona Can back bling, as well as an emote, music, and a new loading screen. That bundle doesn’t come cheap though, at a hefty 2,200 V-Bucks.

The rest of today’s Item Shop is mostly made up of other well-known Fortnite items. There’s an epic skin for Gia, but that’s not a new addition to the game. We’ve also got the very memeable ‘stonks’ outfit of Diamond Hanz, the Glitter Blaster weapon wrap, and three other uncommon skins.

In other news, Black Widow is finally out now – and we’ve got the post-credits scene explained here. DICE LA also has a new name – say hello to Ripple Effect.
