Fortnite has great items and collectables in the item shop. There's typically a great selection whenever the item shop renews itself. However, most skins and cosmetics don't return for a while or at all. This is why most of the time Fortnite players are using up their V-Bucks when new items come in as they never know if they will return or not.
Thankfully, April has given players some great items. Here’s a look at some of the current items in the item shop and some that Fortnite brought back overall in April 2021.
