Fortnite Animal Jackets Gear

Epic Games

The item shop has updated in Fortnite which has brought us a whole new set of skins and items to the game.

Tonight’s update brought us the Animal Jackets collection which consists of the Flap Jackie and Growler outfit. The glider is the poofy parasail and the harvesting tool is the Jack Spammer.

The two skins will cost 1,500 V-Bucks, the glider 800 and the harvesting tool will set players back 500 V-Bucks.

Here’s the rest of tonight’s item shop:

  • Flap Jackie (skin) – 1,500 V-Bucks
  • Growler (skin) – 1,500 V-Bucks
  • Poofy Parasail (glider) – 800 V-Bucks
  • Jackspammer (harvesting tool) – 500 V-Bucks
  • Battle Pass Tiers – 500 V-Bucks
  • Aerobic Assassin (skin) – 1,500 V-Bucks
  • Eagle (emote) – 500 V-Bucks
  • Arctic Assassin (skin) – 1,200 V-Bucks
  • Nite Own (harvesting tool) – 800 V-Bucks
  • Finger Wag (emote) – 200 V-Bucks

It appears that with the time shift because of daylight savings time the item shop updates have been pushed forward an hour to 7 p.m. ET. These items will stick around in the shop for 24 hours so you will have plenty of time to decide if you want to pick these skins up or not.

If you miss out on them this time around you can surely expect them to pop back up in the shop sometime in the future as we’ve seen with pretty much every skin before.
