Cosmetic items are a huge aspect of Fortnite Battle Royale and there are some that are more rare and have appeared in the Item Shop a lot less frequently than others. 

There is no set metric for rarity of cosmetic items as some the definition of the concept can vary from player to player. 

Some determine rarity by the number of times it’s been in the Item Shop, while others go by how long it’s been until the item last appeared in the Shop. 

With that in mind, Reddit user ‘-_General_Grievous_-‘ has updated his online graphic on January 30 that shows the new list of outfit skins, emotes, gliders, and pickaxes that have not appeared in the Item Shop for over a 100 days.

There is currently a total of 61 cosmetics that meet this requirement, including 26 outfit skins, 17 emotes, 10 gliders, and 11 pickaxes. These numbers and lists are subject to change at anytime if one of these items appears in the Item Shop again.

According to the graphic, the rarest cosmetics in terms of time spent outside of the Shop are the Recon Expert skin (445 days), Red Card emote (196 days), Modem glider (282 days), and Pot O’ Gold pickaxe (296 days).

There were two cosmetic items, the Blaze and Solid Strider gliders, which were on this list last week but were taken out due to appearing in the Item Shop.

The Dark Shard pickaxe and Midnight Ops outfit skin are both close to becoming eligible for this list and will likely be included in next week’s version unless they feature in the Shop before then. 

Despite popular belief, the Ghoul Trooper is not the rarest outfit skin in terms of how long its not appeared in the Item Shop.

It’s important to note that the cosmetics shown here only include ones that have featured in the Shop at some point, so excluding all the ones from the Season 1 pass or the Season 2-7 Battle Passes. 

Bundles are also excluded for the purposes of this list since the individual cosmetic items technically cannot be purchased on their own. 


How to get Hop Rock Dualies exotic weapon in Fortnite: new location

Epic Games has thrown Fortnite players for a bit of a loop and changed the location of one of the most coveted Exotic weapons in the game right now: the Hop Rock Dualies. Here’s where you can find it after February 24, 2021.

The Hop Rock Dualies are one of the most powerful Exotic-rarity weapons in the game right now and for good reason. Not only are they incredibly powerful pistols that, essentially, fire in a two-round burst, but they also give the player a low gravity effect, allowing them to glide through the air like an action star.

While they were previously available via the NPC named Cole, who was found near Retail Row and Catty Corner, Epic Games has now switched up who sells the Hop Rock Dualies, just a few weeks before Season 6 launches.

The Hop Rock Dualies can now be found with Deadfire, near the center of the map.

This time around, the Hop Rock Dualies can be found with the NPC named Deadfire, the cowboy-type character added during the game’s Season 5 launch back in December.

Luckily, Deadfire can only spawn on one place on the map as of the time as of this writing: in the Sheriff’s office near the center of the map. This means that, unlike last time, players don’t have to roll the dice landing at one spot, hoping the NPC will spawn there.

Interestingly, he hasn’t moved locations since his inclusion at the start of the season, meaning if you know where he was located before, you’ll already know where to find the Hop Rock Dualies.

That being said, if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies in Fortnite, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Head to the Sheriff’s Office near the center of the map (it’ll be the old run down building between Colossal Coliseum and the Zero Point portal).
  2. Once there, head to the first floor and find Deadfire.
  3. Speak to them and select the Hop Rock Dualies option.
  4. Click again to confirm the purchase.

Like before, the Hop Rock Dualies will cost players 500 Gold.

How much do the Hop Rock Dualies cost?

Just like before, you’ll need to make sure you’re loaded with 500 Gold Bars if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies. That’s not an easy amount to come by, so check out our guide for making money in Fortnite if you’re short.

The Hop Rock Dualies weapon includes two pistols, making it the perfect choice for gunslingers. They use medium bullets, deal 43 damage to players, and have a magazine size of 18 with a reload time of 2.7 seconds.
