Fortnite has unexpectedly removed the legendary Rambunctious emote from its Item Shop alongside the entire Daily section.

Fans looking to finally get their hands on the rarest emote in Fortnite, Rambunctious, may have to wait a little longer as it was removed from the Item Shop without warning.

Why Was the Rambunctious Emote & Daily Section Removed From the Item Shop?

The rarest emote in Fortnite, Rambunctious, returned on Tuesday, December 7th, 2022, after being absent from the Item Shop for around 1500 days.

However, it was removed almost immediately alongside the entire Daily section. Fortnite Status did not offer an explanation, simply stating that the Daily section would return shortly.

This comes just over a day after the extremely rare Tidy emote was also suddenly removed just shortly after being added to the Item Shop.

It is unfortunate, as players haven’t been able to purchase the Rambunctious emote legitimately since 2018.

It is unclear how these emotes continue to be added, presumably accidentally, only to be removed almost immediately afterward.

What Is the Rambunctious Emote in Fortnite?

Rambunctious is the rarest emote in all of Fortnite and is based on a dance from the iconic sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air performed by Will Smith.

It is described in Fortnite as “The embodiment of boundless energy”. You can see it in action here:

When Will the Rambunctious Emote Return to Fortnite?

It is possible that the Rambunctious emote will return when the Daily section refreshes later today. However, it could be that the Daily section returns without it.

Currently, there is no indication of when it will officially return. Considering it was around 1500 days ago that it last appeared, players could be waiting a long time until it comes back.

The Rambunctious emote costs 500 V-Bucks when it is in the Item Shop. So, in order to purchase it, you’ll need to buy 1,000 V-Bucks, which is the minimum you can get at a time. This will set you back:

  • $7.99
  • £7.99
  • €7.99

There were a handful of other items available in the Daily section before it was suddenly removed. It is possible that these will also return when it is refreshed:

  • Arctica (Outfit) – Costs 1,200 V-Bucks, last seen December 21st, 2021. 
  • Clash (Outfit) – Costs 800 V-Bucks, last seen October 25th, 2022.
  • Extra! Extra! (Wrap) – Costs 300 V-Bucks, last seen October 20th, 2020.
  • Falling Stars (Music Pack) – Costs 200 V-Bucks, last seen July 5th, 2021.
  • Kite (Emote) – Costs 500 V-Bucks, last seen April 29th, 2020.
