Fortnite Item Shop: Yule Trooper is back as for the festive season

World News

FORTNITE players may be on tenterhooks ahead of this season's finale, but that hasn't stopped the festive cheer with the return of Christmas skins to the Item Shop.

Epic Games shared the first holiday-themed skin and it's none other than the Yule Trooper.

The rare Fortnite skin first rolled out in 2019 and has been back every December since.

So if you missed out the last two years, now's your chance to grab the outfit.

The Yule Trooper isn't the only seasonal addition to the Item Shop — a Pickaxe and a wrap are also available on the storefront.

  • Yule Trooper skin – 1,500 V-Bucks
  • Branch Basher Pickaxe – 1,200 V-Bucks
  • Ho Ho Ho wrap – 300 V-Bucks

If you want the whole set, you'll need to fork out 2,000 V-Bucks, so unless you have surplus currency on your account, you can pick between two V-Bucks bundles.

There's the 2,800 V-Bucks bundle for £15.99 / $19.99 which will leave you a little extra to play with..

Or you can buy two 1,000 V-Bucks bundles at £6.49 / $7.99 a pop.

Given that the first bundle is just a few pounds more, and you'll have 800 V-Bucks leftover to fritter away as you please, I'd recommend going for that.

In the meantime, Fortnite players are gearing up The End live event this weekend.

The event will end Chapter 2 Season 8 and kicks off Chapter 3 with another black hole and a flipped island.
