Fortnite’s April Fool’s day store now features a brand-new skin: Diamond Hanz – a reference to the mania around WallStreetBets, Stonks, and tendies. It’s part of the To the Moon set.

Released on April 1, this is no April Fool’s joke, it’s a real skin you can now buy in the store.

The character skin is based on the very popular ‘stonks’ meme, and is part of the “To the Moon” set. All of this comes from the popular subreddit, WallStreetBets.

‘To the moon’, ‘diamond hands’ and ‘stonks’ are part of the lingo used by the investors who have been driving up the price of Gamestop stock, and now have over 9.5 million members.

Included in the bundle is Mr Diamond Hanz himself, along with a backbling called ‘Gains’, which is simply an arrow indicating the share prices rocketing.

This might be an April Fool’s gag, but it’s a real skin available in the game, for 1,200 V-Bucks.

In addition to the skin set, the Egg Launcher is also back in Fortnite on April 1, and a new foraged item: Hop Drops, which are actually easter eggs with some boosts.

The WallStreetBets crowd will surely love seeing their memes immortalized in Fortnite, and it’s another indication of how big a fuss they managed to create with their ‘short squeeze’.
