What's In The Fortnite Item Shop Today - October 28, 2021: Kernal Poppy Debuts, Gildedguy Returns

Just in time for Shortnitemares comes a new movie buff character.


Another day, another Fortnite Item Shop update. Today's update brings with it yet another brand-new character skin, alongside new back bling to match and an emote that will be perfect for Fortnite's upcoming horror movie festival, Shortnitemares. Here's what's new in the Fortnite Item Shop for October 28, 2021.

The marquee new addition is Kernal Poppy, a movie-obsessed, uh, green...thing. To be honest, I'm not sure what his Gumby-like body is meant to reference (green screens?), but his popcorn torso and retro 3D glasses leave no room for doubt: This dude loves his movies. You can grab the Kernal Poppy skin for 1,200 V-Bucks which also includes his Slurpy Slush'Em back bling. New to the Shortnitemares set, you may also want the Butter Buddy emote for 200 V-Bucks, which depicts your character sitting in a theater seat scared of what's in front of them and eating a comically large bucket of popcorn. It'll be perfect for this weekend's horror shorts festival.

If you remember from the last Short Nite festival over the summer, Gildedguy made the journey from YouTube hero to Fortnite hero, and he's back in the shop with his unique, cel-shaded look too. Here's everything you can get in the Gildedguy set:

  • Gildedguy skin (with Slush Fighter Cape back bling) - 1,500 V-Bucks
  • Stellapen Smashpack pickaxe - 800 V-Bucks

If 2,300 V-Bucks is too steep for your Gildedguy fandom, you can grab all three items in a bundle for 1,800 V-Bucks. Elsewhere, Fortnite staples such as Wild Card, Aura, and the Seinfeld-inspired Jubilation emote are back once more.

You'll still find licensed heroes and anti-heroes like Ariana Grande, the Batman Who Laughs, and Resident Evil in the shop today too. For a complete look at today's Item Shop, don't miss iFireMonkey's handy image below.

We'll be back tomorrow with another rundown of the Fortnite Item Shop update.
