Ever wanted to display your Banner on your in-game Outfit? Now you can wear your Banner proudly with new cosmetics coming to the Item Shop! Customize certain select Outfits, Pickaxes, Gliders and Back Bling with a personally selected icon and color. You’ll also see the Banner category added to all cosmetics that support Banner functionality in your locker.
The first of these new cosmetics are the Banner Brigade, bringing eight Outfits into the store this week for you to pick up and show off your style. There will also be a Pickaxe, Glider and Back Bling available. You can preview how your chosen icon and color will look on your selected Banner Outfit before purchasing by selecting it first within the locker.
To celebrate this new use of Banners, you can grab two free Banners from today at 8:00 PM EDT to July 20th at 8:00 PM EDT. These Banners are all about showing support for your chosen side in this weekend’s live event. Make sure you tell a friend as you can only get these banners for free through gifting.
We hope to expand this functionality to a wider range of cosmetics in the future and appreciate your feedback, please let us know what you think of showcasing your Banner on cosmetics and how we could improve.
P.S. For those fans excited for the Fortnite World Cup Finals, we’ll have some special banners available next week ;)
