Fortnite Red Knight shield back bling missing as Criterion skin releases on item shop

One of Battle Royale’s rarer skins is now available to purchase from the Fortnite shop with V-Bucks.

The Red Knight skin is a legendary outfit which comes complete with shield back bling.

However, fans have noticed that this part of the outfit is currently missing and isn’t with the rest of the gear bought with the Red Knight.

This problem has been flagged to the Fortnite support team, who confirmed that the shield back bling would be added soon.

“We’re aware that the Red Knight Outfit doesn’t have back bling,” the message from Epic Games reads.

“We’ll be granting her back bling to anyone who has purchased this Outfit in the near future. Sorry for the inconvenience!”

So while the Red Knight will be completed soon, it’s unclear just how long fans will have to wait.

There’s also another themed piece of gear in the Crimson Axe, which is part of the current rotation of items.

Fans can also buy the Criterion skin for the same price as the Red Knight, although it isn’t nearly as rare to get.

Both are Legendary skins, meaning they will cost you hefty 2,000 V-Bucks each.

For those interested in the Crimson Axe, that item will cost 800 V-bucks to add to your collection.

The reason for the popularity surrounding the Red Knight skin is more to do with its rarity than design.

The outfit launched at a time when Fortnite Battle Royale hadn’t become one of the biggest games in the world.

So those who have been playing the game since season 2 have managed to keep the Red Knight as a sign of their dedication to the game.

Another skin which would have the same effect would be the Halloween-themed skull trooper.

And there’s the chance that Epic Games will look to celebrate the end of Season 4 with even more skins this week.

Criterion was a surprise entry in the currently Fortnite item shop and looks set to stick around for the next 24hrs.

Season 5 won’t be starting until later in July, meaning there’s plenty of time for other rare skins to be brought back by the development team.

Fortnite Battle Royale is a free-to-play game currently available to download on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch and Mobile.

It should be noted that all cosmetic items sold by Epic Games are just for show and do not provide any kind of in-game boost.
