Unless you've been living under a rock (or have had absolutely zero contact with anyone under 20), you will have heard of Fortnite -- the smash 'em up/battle royale funfest from Epic Games.
Partly because of its not-too-serious and cartoony aesthetic, partly because you can pretty much play it for free, Fortnite has taken over. The middle/high school crowd is catching a game or two during free period, Twitch streams are though the roof (Canadian rapper superstar Drake set records during his debut Fortnite stream), and the game is tearing apart fictional relationships in various forms of the "Fortnite boyfriend meme."
It's not enough that the game has become a global sensation; it's also started taking over parts of the convention floor. If you're on the hunt for the perfect weapons or accessories to finalize your Fortnite cosplay or add that extra touch of nerdy to your battle station or bedroom, take a look at some of our favorite picks!
