Today’s Fortnite Item Shop – Available Skins & Cosmetics for December 16th, 2018

Take a look at what's in today's item shop in Fortnite: Battle Royale!

Our Fortnite Item Shop post features all of the currently available skins and cosmetics in today's item shop! This is updated on a daily basis, and has all of the information you will need when making your decision on purchasing a new skin!

The available skins and cosmetics items are available below. You can click on each of the images to learn more about the skin or item, such as the release date, set name, and what the cosmetic comes with when you purchase it!

When Does the Item Shop Update?

The item shop updates on a daily basis at 5pm PST. However, there are times when Epic will make an early day update. This usually includes when they are launching a new skin that corresponds with a new patch. So these times are usually around 3am PST or whenever the maintenance has been completed on the server.

Frequently Asked Questions

Two of the most common questions I get are: "When is XYZ skin coming back into the item shop?" and "Will XYZ skin return to the item shop?" To answer the first question, if the skin wasn't a Battle Pass skin then it's likely to return at anytime. While there are occasionally leaks that lead to us knowing what items will be in the shop, these are usually on the day of the release and we don't have a lot of prior notice. So, we don't know when a skin is coming back and if you ask in the comments it will be deleted (I get tons of these comments).

The second question is that unless it's from the Battle Pass, every skin is likely to come back at some point (there's some exceptions currently, e.g., Ghoul Trooper and the Christmas skin, but those will likely released during the Winter season). Holiday or not, a skin can return at anytime during the year. However, these Holiday skins usually don't show up again too often, so if you like one you should grab it when you see it! Again, if you comment asking about the release date of a skin it will be removed.

Another question I get a lot is "Should I get XYZ skin?" The answer to that is get it if you like it! Nothing someone else can tell you should really influence your decision on whether or not you like a skin. There's a lot of thought about if the skin will be "rare" in the future, and the truth of the matter is that unless it's a Battle Pass skin it's very unlikely that a skin will be rare ever again. The only reason skins are going to be rare in the future is because people don't like them and didn't purchase them. Most people dislike the Flytrap skin, and that actually makes it pretty rare, but that doesn't make the skin good!

  1. Hey guys , what’s your thoughts on longshot and insight ? I like them but was expecting a Christmas skin ? Not complaining because I hope no more Christmas skins come back , just surprised .

  2. Hey evident do you think the cipher is rare because I have it and too bad they’re bringing my crackshot back was my favorite now I have to use mogul master.

  3. Hey evident I love this site ! I wake up every moaning and go on this strait away , always hoping that the merry marauder isn’t in the shop . Lol . It’s my rarest skin and really hope it doesn’t come back . Do you like the skin and think it will come back ?

      1. I think that’s good. Too many edgy streamer btws have thought they can get stuff like merry marauder from trading accounts and get scammed.

    1. I also stupidly realized that all the skins I bought, power cord, valkery, Arachne, oblivion, came back recently, except for oblivion.

  4. Hey guys reply on my comment what septuagenarian of the ice king you like, I like the first 3 stages the 4th stage is ugly and evident u say ur favorite stage of ice king I don’t care if people say that the 4th stage is nice I just don’t like it and also it’s other people opinion so I don’t care what stage u people like and just saying it doesn’t matter to me it’s ur opinion guys u don’t judge people.

    1. I like the 2nd and 3rd King Because it has a black knight theme And 3rd has a gray vibe to make it good I agree with you on the 4th one there

    2. I like all the stages besides the 4th stage too. But in order from best to least is

  5. The merry marauder is better in my opinion because he is unique but crackshot is cool but you can’t peek shot because of the hat and he stands out from a distance

    1. Crackshot is so cool but the thing is, is that u can get an easy snipe because if his tall hat and hey evident can u get a sniper kill if crackshots hat is showing but not his head

        1. But the thing is about sniping with the crackshot is that you may not be sniped from the hat, but people can see you hiding or trying to snipe.

          1. That wasn’t what he asked. He asked if you could get sniped through the hat, at least that’s how it reads to me.

  6. What skins do you guys think will get opposite genders of (example Deadfire and Calamity?) I see Trog, Ice King, and Powder getting opposite genders but surprised something like D.J. Yonder getting opposite gender.

  7. Man I was hoping for more Christmas themed items in this season’s battle pass, although to be fair there wasn’t much Halloween stuff in the season 6 pass, so I guess that means I’ll have to buy Christmas skins from the store.

    1. Yeah but all the skins r nice and hey evident do u like the last stage of the ice king and guys list all the skins you like in the new season 7 battle pass

      1. I think I like the second stage of the ice king the most with the red. And is it just me, or does he look like he’s from Dark Souls?

        I like all the new battle pass skins but I think lynx or ice kind is my favorite. The yeti guy is just awesome though

          1. My favorite is Powder. She just looks really comfy in that suit. But i love the 3rd version of the Ice king with the white and gray colours. And the Free Flow is just the best Epic Emote in the seven battlepasses

          2. Bro the yeti is so ugly this is how I feel about it 🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮. What about u Vicente do u like the yeti in the battle pass. Hey evident thanks 4 responding to my best friend domdonut.

  8. Hey evident I know your the author of all of this stuff can’t u plz post season 7 battle pass because me and my friends count on this website and we always check the item shop and all the other kinds of stuff on this website so can u plz post the season 7 battle pass me and my friends r hyped up 4 it also anyone can reply to this message not just evident

        1. i use this every day this website is what keeps me going through my schoolwork and my life when i dont have the ability to play fortnite because i have lost my ps4 for a month and one week witch is really disapointing since i just got the frostbite bundle and only got to use it for an hour and thirty mins which makes me mad but evident thank you for giving me somthing to think about in school every day so thank you so much .Bye.

  9. Aww Grinded out 4k vbucks hopeing there would be a female dire/dire set. Now im slightly depressed i had to pass up alot of good skins recently

  10. They are bringing back a lot of rare emotes and skins recently! They just now put finger guns and flippin’ sexy back in the shop, and a while ago, they put in kiss kiss, and power chord! I wonder what they will add back next? Do y’all have any ideas?

  11. Hey guys, question I want everyone to weigh in on, does buying a skins because you think it will be rare or has a decent chance good? Do the pros out weigh the cons?

    1. I just get them when they are good. Mostly just get battle pass though. Btw its PhoenixPlayz5. I just changed my name to match my new in game one. Friend me if u guys want!

  12. Wow! There is so many skins that have come out that were not leaked! How many more will there be? I personally like the new moth skin, but other people have different opinions! What do y’all think?

          1. I’m the type of guy that buys skins because I think they’re cool, not rare
            (Damn, this reply box is getting pretty small)

    1. trust me, fortnite will bring back every skin in the game at one point in time, so dont bother wasting your money on thinking of it being a rare skin

      1. The only skins that will retain some rarity are occasional holiday skins, some promotional skins and battle pass skins. Also, the ugliest, least liked skins become rare because no one buys them. Flytrap is a good example. But don’t be shocked if Epic brings him back, and everyone gets him because they think he’s rare… such a stupid reason to want a skin honestly lol.

  13. I’m waiting patiently for Guan Yu. I played a lot of Dynasty Warriors when I was younger. Hope he’s not for like Chinese New Year. That would be corny.

        1. I think it’s just going to be a skin in the item shop. Maybe it’ll come back into the item shop on Chinese New Year, but otherwise it’s probably an item shop skin.

  14. I’m a season 1 player I’ve had all battle passes and my rarest skin is either black knight or the German alpine ace ski skin I have over 300 wins. I also bought the tender defender yesterday and I’m not regretting it so far 😂

  15. I think that theres gonna be a Disco Domination LTM with a twist like Wreck it Ralph cuz the new emote says “Wreck the dancefloor”.

    Btw rarest skin is probably:The Reaper,Plague uuh thats it

  16. I bought the whole Fowl Play set when it came out lmao

    My rarest items: Dark Voyager, Havoc, Sub Commander, Best Mates, you get the idea.

    1. Ah nice a Season 3 Veteran, only 90’s kids remember Dusty Depot. S3 was my first Battle Pass, I have fond memories of those days but I’m actually quite happy with how the game and the map has progressed since then.

      1. I’m only a season 4 player, because I play on switch. My first battle pass was season 5, but my rarest items are probably the birthday cake back bling, and the bogey bag.

  17. Any switch players here? I am a switch player and my rarest thing is probably a season four free pass back bling! Lol!

    1. I’m a switch player but I didn’t think Fortnite was cool when Season 4 Came out so I didn’t play it until the last day of Season 4 and it was fun. I’ve been playing Fortnite a lot often now.

  18. My rarest skins are black knight, merry marauder, make (glider) and probably red knight because I got it when it was og.

    1. I think either max omega or…. THE DEFAULT SKIN

      Does anyone think triple threat is rare? She hasn’t been in the shop for a while and I see more black knights than triple threats in-game.

      1. Mainly because everyone that has Black Knight, wears it. Although the people that have triple threat don’t wear it very often because it isn’t as cool.

    1. You could just like the Fortnite colors. Or browse the teams for colors you like. I am a NYG fan, but some of the other uniforms are awesome.

      1. Just Prefer All Of Them Because No One Should Care Of What You Think
        (I Hate Football Im Not Wasting 1500 Vbucks On My 60th Skin

  19. Evident how do you know all this and what is your favorite skin personally I like end zone from the nfl set. Oh and you are so good at creating this chain of fortnite websites i like the skin list and the leaks.

    1. I’ve been following Fortnite since the beginning, so I’ve just picked up the knowledge. My favorite skin is Dark Voyager. Thanks, glad you like the site!

  20. When Fortnite Dies They Will Bring Back The Seasons And Probably Bring Back The Ski Skins (I Have The British Girl One)

    1. There is no more rarity in skins. Holiday skins are rare for a year and season pass skins rule supreme if you managed to play season one or two

        1. The battle hound has returned before st patty. And the Christmas skins WILL be back maybe except for one. Ghoul Trooper is the real MVP

  21. Mayhem is so cool. She reminds me a little of Joule from ReCore. And the orange… my favorite color. I wish I had enough to get her. Should I save for her the next time she comes back in the shop?

  22. I think epic games is going to make the battle passes go up to season 10 then they’ll recycle the seasons from season 1 to season 10

  23. I just realized that a lot of the male outfits have their faces covered up more than the female counterparts (example: abstrakt and teknique, mayhem and ruckus, venturion and ventura)

  24. I only ended up getting boneless though it’s a pretty good emote I recommend it getting it.What do you guys think and do you have boneless?

  25. Today’s item shop is sick,I’m going to get electro shuffle and maybe a skin.Im not a big fan on the Dante and Rosa though how about you guys?

    1. I personally like them. I got electro shuffle by accident back in season 3 but it’s a pretty good emote. If you don’t care for the day of the dead skins, then don’t get them! It’s your money, wish I had some, because I really like the day of the dead skins and their pickaxe.

      And you don’t necessarily need to get anything in this shop rotation, there’s different loot every day! I highly recommend triple threat, my favorite skin, because she’s clean and cheap and she looks awesome. She hasn’t been in the shop for a while now though, so I expect she will be back soon along with all of the other half court items (I love that set!) sorry for ranting I have a problem with that.

      1. So true man like one day the shop is terrible the next everything is new and when the football skins come it will be amazing with the 2 dances 2 Pickaxes 1 glider 2 ref skins and like 8 football skins it will be amazing.

  26. Epic want to keep it rare and I think that’s good because all of the original ghoul trooper owners don’t won’t it ruined

  27. The skull squad is back I’m going to get crypt cruiser to complete the set as I already have the skull trooper ranger and sickle.

    I also think that the ghoul trooper won’t return because it would of came out by now

  28. Okay, Evident I’d like your opinion, it is now Halloween and the Ghoul Trooper hasn’t come back. I find it unlikely they would release her after Halloween, because well, why would they do that when they had the perfect opportunity to release a Halloween themed skin during the Halloween season. Do you think they’re gonna release her later this year? I kinda doubt it.

    My only guess is because she was less popular, they’re saving her for next Halloween or something so a lot of people will buy her. Because we all know how money hungry Epic is.

    1. It doesn’t look like she is coming back, and I have no idea why. It might literally be because she wasn’t that popular, or they wanted to keep one of the original skins rare. She is pretty limited for an Epic rarity skin, maybe they wanted to upgrade her a bit and didn’t get around to it.

      However, they didn’t release the Day of the Dead skins yet, so there’s still some Halloween stuff left.

      1. They just did, but I agree, the ghoul trooper probably is not coming back until next year. My theory is that they are saving it for next year, but aren’t going to bring back skull trooper that year, and the year after that they will bring back skull trooper but not ghoul trooper.

  29. At every morning I look to the Item Shop at this Webside.
    And I hope always, that the Dark Bomber Skin is coming to the Item Shop.
    Can you please say me, when the skin is coming to the Item Shop.

    1. We don’t know an exact date! It’s extremely rare when knowledge of the upcoming item shop is available, and even when it is it’s usually pretty close to the actual date.

  30. Do you think reaper will be back any time soon? I only have 600 v bucks and I’m really disappointed because I’m so busy and I can’t earn more from stw and the battle pass because I won’t be able to play….. and I’ve literally been waiting for it since I DIDNT get it in season 1 😭

    If only I knew Fortnite would be so popular…. all I ended up getting from s1 was a banner 😢

      1. Honestly I recommend u getting skull ranger because I got it and it’s really clean and u save an extra 300 vbucks for a green dance or saving for the battle pass

  31. Hopefully the Plague will return soon. I will be finally able to cure the inhabitants of this world of The Pestilence.
