Fortnite Item Shop – August 12th – 13th, 2020 Update!

Our Fortnite Item Shop post takes a look at what is in the shop right now! This is updated daily with every new item shop, and will always have the most current information on which skins are available at the moment. The shop is usually updated once a day, but on occasion there will be special cosmetics added which are updated in the morning. This is usually after a new patch or update, so keep an eye out for those.

What is in the Fortnite Item Shop Right Now?

Here's today's daily Fortnite Item Shop. Older cosmetics generally only return to the shop for 24 hours, so you will want to jump on those immediately. If it's a cosmetic that is part of an event or holiday, those can sometimes stick around for multiple days! 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!

Fortnite Item Shop FAQ

I get some frequent queries about the item shop and cosmetics in general. I'm compiling answers to these questions below.

When does the Fortnite Item Shop Update?

The daily Fortnite Item Shop will swap items every day at 00:00 UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). Based on the country you live in, that time will be the following:

  • United States (East) - 8pm ET
  • United States (West) - 5pm PT
  • United Kingdom - 1am BST
  • Europe - 2am CEST

There are also times when the shop will update at an unexpected time. This is usually after a big patch and Epic has something special planned. You will generally find this update to occur in the morning of when a new update was launched.

When do skins return to the shop?

This is very rarely ever known, but for some skins you can kind of predict it. If it's a popular skin, then you can usually expect them to be back in the shop in around 30 days. If the cosmetic isn't popular, then it's a really big unknown. You'll have some items be missing from the shop for years! You can see examples of these in our rarest skins post.

Holiday skins will usually return around the date of the particular holiday. While some of these cosmetics were really rare, it appears that they will usually always return now, so you just need to wait for around the holiday to snap it up.

How long do cosmetics stay in the shop?

It really depends on what kind of skin it is and if it's part of an event. If it's a general skin that is new or has been in the shop before then it will usually only stick around for one day. If it is part of an event, or it's something special that is associated with a movie or other media then it can stick around for multiple days!

If there's an ongoing event, a skin can show up in the shop once for a couple of days. It will then leave the shop, and will sometimes return towards the end of the event.

Why do I see leaked skins in the game?

You will occasionally come across skins that have never been in the item shop before. This is a good way to tell that you're looking at a bot. If a skin has been added to the files of the game, then it appears that bots get access to it. That doesn't mean that you missed out, it just means that an AI player is in your game.

What's a Creator Code?

This is a code that is given out to content creators who have amassed enough of a following to meet Epic's creator code standards. The code can be entered via the item shop. When you purchase a skin, that code's owner will get a percentage of the sale. You should always try to remember to add someone's code in because you lose nothing by doing so. Try to find a smaller creator and show them some love next time you're buying a skin!

You should also make sure that you have one entered! They get removed periodically, so you have to add it back in to make sure someone gets a piece of the purchase.

Should I buy a certain skin or cosmetic?

I don't have an answer for you on this! You need to formulate your own opinion and if you like something a lot and you have the V-Bucks then you should go for it! Me telling you if a skin is good or not shouldn't matter. If you like the skin, then you should get the skin. Don't let other people pressure you into buying one or not. If there's a cosmetic you like and it makes you happy then go with your gut!
