Fortnite merchandise - t-shirts

If you want to wear something Fortnite-themed while flossing to your latest Victory Royale, there are plenty of branded t-shirts to choose from. Here are some of our favorite options.

Fortnite merchandise - toys

As you'd expect, one of the biggest franchises in the world has spawned more than a few action figures since its launch in 2017. That gives us a lot of ground to cover, so strap in. To help narrow things down, we've listed what we think are the best Fortnite toys below. 

Fortnite merch - Nerf blasters

These toys might be the most on-brand Fortnite merchandise out there. Big, bold, and brightly colored, they recreate the game's most iconic weapons in cartoonish style. That means you can get a Victory Royale in real life anywhere from the back yard to your college dorm room, so we've pulled together some recommendations to get you started with the best Fortnite Nerf guns. 

1. Nerf Fortnite AR-L

The best Fortnite toy gun overall

Specifications

Ages: 8+
Ammo: 10 Elite dart clip

Reasons to buy

+
Looks just like the game version
+
Motorized firing
+
Standard magazine with Elite darts

Reasons to avoid

Requires four batteries

For Nerf warriors seeking the ultimate Fortnite blaster, it doesn't get much better than this. Besides being a spot-on recreation of the gun from the video game (besides a more family-friendly aesthetic, anyway), it has a battery-powered motor that fires Nerf bullets much faster than the competition. So long as you can keep it stocked with four AA batteries, the AR-L is a force to be reckoned with. Simply hold down the power-up button on the handle and pull the trigger. It'll do the rest.

Aside from its capabilities in soft-play battle, there's plenty of versatility on offer with this blaster as well; thanks to an an accessory rail on the surprisingly lightweight gun, you can customize your setup with standard Nerf extras. Plus, it uses an interchangeable 10-dart clip with standard Elite ammo. That means you can stock up on darts for less, or swap in other Nerf magazines you already own. When combined with a very satisfying "ka-KLUNK" noise upon inserting the mag, it's hard to argue that this Fortnite toy isn't cool.

2. Nerf Fortnite SP-L

The best cheap Fortnite Nerf gun

Specifications

Ages: 8+
Ammo: 3 Elite darts

Reasons to buy

+
Affordable
+
More portable
+
Cool loading mechanism

Reasons to avoid

Bigger than you might think

In our opinion, this is the best cheap Fortnite blaster on the market right now. While it doesn't boast a bargain-bin price, it's still a damn sight cheaper than many of the best Nerf guns. It isn't a single-shot novelty like other budget options either - it carries three darts at a time that can easily loaded into the top. While that means you can't spray-and-pray like the AR-L listed above, it does make the SP-L a good sidearm for desperate last stands or more careful marksmanship.

And if we're being honest, it just looks awesome; those oversized proportions mimic the in-game item perfectly, making it a great curiosity to own if you love Fortnite. Add bonus cool-factor through the way it readies for the next shot (you pull back the top after firing like some soft-play cowboy) and a removable silencer to provide one top-tier Fortnite toy.

3. Nerf Fortnite GL

The best premium Fortnite Nerf gun

Specifications

Ages: 8+
Ammo: 6 Nerf rockets

Reasons to buy

+
Fires big foam rockets
+
Brings a sense of awe to games
+
C'mon, it's a grenade launcher

Reasons to avoid

-
Requires setup

OK, so this option stretches the definition of 'blaster'. But come on - a freakin' Nerf grenade launcher is undeniably dope. It's an excellent bit of Fortnite merch for fans that want to intimidate their foes on the battlefield, largely because it packs enormous Nerf rockets. 

Although some stamina is required to fire these due to the pump-action mechanism (and the toy arrives with a disassembled drum, so you'll need to put it together before you do anything else), the effort is worth your while. The GL carries six of these rockets, which is more than any other Nerf gun, and that means you won't have to immediately reload like you would with the standard Fortnite RL.
