UPDATED: If you owned Skull Trooper before his return, you get an exclusive Purple style – as confirmed by Fortnite’s French social media team.


The Skull Squad Gear is available now in Fortnite! Complete the challenges to earn the Ghost Portal back bling!

It seems that Epic Games have decided to bring back Skull Trooper and add a female version (Skull Ranger), but with entirely different designs. They now have a green tint, a blue Scythe pickaxe, and a new Glider. These are styles for the skin, which you can unlock with challenges. You can also unlock the Ghost Portal back bling through the challenges.

The set, titled Skull Squad, is now available in the Item Shop as downtime for Patch v6.02 has ended. The green tint is just a style for Skull Trooper and Skull Ranger, and the skins have more than just the green tint as a style. You can buy the skins now in the Fortnite Item Shop, and they will last 24 hours most likely.

Here are the set items.
– Skull Sickle (Epic) – 1,200 V-Bucks
– Crypt Cruiser (Epic) – 1,200 V-Bucks
– Skull Trooper (Epic) – 1,500 V-Bucks
– Skull Ranger (Rare) – 1,200 V-Bucks
