In fact, a recent survey conducted y LendEDU concluded that over half of Fortnite players surveyed have spent real-world cash to play the game. A whopping 69% of players included in the study had paid their hard-earned money for things like skins, emotes, gliders, and various other items you can get in-game.

Out of the 1,000 Fortnite players surveyed who play between six and ten hours per week on the game, 58.9% spent money on cosmetics or characters, while 18.06% got gliders, 13.52% grabbed harvesting tools, and the rest, or 9.52%, bought emotes and other dance moves.
