Fortnite’s Rainbow Royle event has returned in 2022, and fans of the battle royale title can get their hands on some special cosmetic items, including a weapon wrap, sprays, and emote, to support the game’s LGBTQIA+ community.

Fortnite’s 21.50 update dropped on August 30, bringing back fan-favorite weapons in the Shadow of Phantasm Week as well as featuring Late Game Arenas once again. That’s not all though.

Players who drop onto the island may notice that a giant rainbow is stretching across the map, and may also notice that the artists on the in-game radio stations have changed.

That’s because Epic Games are celebrating the game’s LGBTQIA+ community with the special Rainbow Royale event again in 2022, offering free cosmetics, updated radio tracks, and a unique Battle Pass for the event.

Here’s how you can get your hands on a free weapon skin, emote, and four sprays with the return of Rainbow Royale.

All that Fortnite players need to do is head to the in-game Item Shop, look for the Rainbow Royale section, and claim the items. The cosmetics are all free, so you won’t need to have any V-Bucks in your account to acquire them.

Plus, if you missed out on all of 2021 cosmetics, they have also returned to the Item Shop completely for free.

You’ll be able to pick up the Rainbow Royale cosmetics from August 31 at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET / 1 AM BST (September 1), but there’s no word on how long they’ll last yet.
