Fortnite’s Rainbow Royale 2022 pays tribute to the LGBTQIA+ community with in-game recognition, a new Battle Bus, free rewards, and much more.

Fortnite’s annual Rainbow Royale event is back in 2022 for another LGBTQIA+ pride celebration. Last year, Epic Games announced the inaugural Rainbow Royale. The event paid tribute to members of the LGBTQIA+ community. As a result, Epic Games released several cosmetic items, including a loading screen, emote, wrap, and more. 

In addition to these exclusive rewards, Epic Games made them completely free via the Fortnite Item Shop. Rainbow Royale 2022 follows a similar pattern. Those who load into Fortnite now will have access to the free rewards. Furthermore, there’s a revamped Battle Bus and many other inclusions this time. 

Exclusive Rainbow Royale 2021 & 2022 cosmetics are now available

Fortnite players who enter the Item Shop today can unlock several Rainbow Royale 2022 cosmetics for the next few weeks. Those include an emote, emoticon, spray, lobby track, and two loading screens. Also, the Rainbow Royale 2021 cosmetics are available to acquire from the Item Shop completely free.

Here is a look and list of the items that are now unlockable:
