Every rare Fortnite cosmetic item that hasn’t appeared in the Item Shop for over 100 days [UPDATED]

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.

Fortnite World Cup winner Aqua allegedly banned for FNCS stream-sniping

Fortnite World Cup champion and Season 4 FNCS competitor, David ‘aqua’ Wang has been accused of stream-sniping and subsequently been punished by an alleged ban by Epic Games.

At 17 years old, aqua represented his home country of Austria to the fullest by winning the 2019 Fortnite World Cup’s Duos event with Norway’s Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist. With a smooth $1.5 million earned from the World Cup, he’s since signed with Cooler Esport and continued to win competitions across Europe.

Most recently, aqua’s trio (with Rezon and Noahreyli) have been participating in FNCS Europe and, following the Week 3 semis, have been accused of stream-sniping another popular trio: Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, Martin ‘MrSavage’ Andersen, and Kevin ‘LeTsHe’ Fedjuschkin.

Although fans initially deemed aqua’s behavior suspicious, things quickly escalated. With Benjyfishy’s team unable to qualify for the Week 3 finals and the discovery that aqua was watching MrSavage’s stream during the competition, the controversy has spiraled.

Following condemnations of the World Cup winner’s team, rumors began circulating that aqua, Rezon, and Noahreyli had been banned by Epic Games from participating past the first match of the Finals. 

Although many fans were delighted to hear the news, it was never officially legitimized and has since been made even more unclear by responses from some of the involved parties.

After the rumor mill buzzed with the reports that aqua’s team was banned from competing, he took to Twitter and gave a concise clarification denying those allegations: “We are not banned, we just don’t wanna play. It’s boring without early fighting Benjy.”

Given the difficulty inherent to confirming someone was in fact stream-sniping and didn’t coincidentally run into a fellow streamer, many believe it is unlikely that the World Cup winner has actually been exiled from the competition.

Additionally, some have noted that bans typically result in removal from the leaderboard, something that aqua’s team has not been hit with.

 

As for how the players are handling it, aqua and Benjyfishy have simply joked about the incident for hours. Neither side appears to be nearly as angry as some fans have been, instead, laughing at the drama and sharing memes.

 

While whatever’s going on behind the scenes may remain unclear, all players involved are more than good enough to qualify for the Season 4 FNCS Finals at some point, if they haven’t already, so it seems that no one’s really that bothered by the situation, ban or no ban.

We will continue to update this article with more details as they become available.
