Captain America is doing a superhero landing into Fortnite as part of the game's 4th of July celebration, and you can buy him now from the Fortnite item shop. The new skin also comes with some classic back bling and a new type of harvesting tool that's pretty different from anything I've seen in Fortnite before.
Take a look in the trailer below.
You can get Captain America in the item shop for 2,000 V-bucks, which is roughly $18-$20 USD. But you'll also get Cap's proto-adamantium shield as both back bling and as a harvesting tool. The item shop description isn't clear on whether you can use the shield for both at once (like, could Cap take it off and put it back on?) so unfortunately we're not sure how that'll work until one of us buys it. But as a harvesting tool, I love the idea of swinging around something other than a pickaxe or those dual axes. Thankfully, the shield is included in that 2,000 V-buck price tag. There's also a new "Grand Salute" emote that makes your character stand triumphantly in front of a shower of fireworks, in another nod to the 4th of July. It honestly might be the only fireworks some of us see this year.
