The long-awaited TMNT crossover is here in Fortnite, and while it brought a fair number of cosmetics, it also raised some concerns.

Fortnite Chapter 5’s launch caused quite a stir upon its arrival, as usual, with its huge range of gameplay additions and a new Battle Pass featuring the likes of Peter Griffin and Solid Snake.

Very early in the season, fans figured out there were bigger things to come after spotting subtle nods to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Fast forward, and the long-awaited crossover for ninja/pizza fans has finally arrived, with new quests and cosmetic items to earn.

However, the crossover is generating some anger, with fans pointing out major issues with the item shop’s pricing strategy.

Fortnite Players Criticize TMNT Item Shop Prices

Shared on Fortnite’s subreddit, Apprentice_Jedi shared an image of Master Splinter’s skin. As part of the crossover, players can purchase the Turtle Mentor from the Item Shop for 1,500 V-Bucks.

While this seems fairly innocuous, Apprentice_Jedi points out that players only get the skin, the LEGO variant, and the Back Bling for 1,500 V-Bucks. Players can purchase the Staff separately, but that will cost an additional 800 V-Bucks since there is no bundle option.

“This is more than just the individual Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the entire April pack includes significantly more items. 2,300 for three items is crazy,” said Apprentice_Jedi.

Many others shared similar thoughts: “Dude, it’s been like this for a while, and it’s completely unacceptable. I don’t really buy things I would have bought before anymore.

After agreeing on how “weak” the wand being sold separately was, one player responded with his exact replacement: “I’ll probably use Mickey’s nunchucks on him to make it fit the lore with the way he defeated Splinter Shredder in the first movie.”

Another issue that others have noticed is that the TMNT Tool Pack costs 3,000 V-Bucks. “$30 for a music collection that’s not worth it at all, sell them for $300 each like the covers are basically what they are,” one player said. Rocket Racing was also criticized for a similar issue as $40 car skins debuted with the launch of the mode.
