Epic has another store-related mishap.


The Fortnite store changes daily, rotating the available items so quickly and often that sometimes even Epic gets lost in it all. This is exactly what happened with one of the skins, which was also supposed to offer a backpack in the set.

The studio admitted that it made a mistake and reassured that everyone will get their backpacks within a maximum of 7 days.

Who will get the backpack?

This is definitely not a “huge mistake with the free backpack”. Epic just didn’t do what it should. These are specifically the “Rapscallion” skin and the “Burgle Bag” backpack.

Not everyone knows this skin by its name, so it is this 1500 V-Bucks skin:

It is not some incredibly popular skin, much less a backpack. Still, it’s good that Epic let you know about it, because the skin is in the store today and probably many people would wonder why they do not receive a backpack.
